I have got so much to read right now. I wish we had "reading days" built into our contract so we could stay home and read. I have four books out of the library including State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. I have just started reading this and it has already caught my attention.
I also have The Accident by Linwood Barclay. It is a thriller and looks rather good. I can't remember where it was recommended. If I like it there are other books by the same author always a plus.
Another library choice is Emily and Einstein which sports a dog on a park bench on the cover and yes I DO choose books by their covers. Books about dogs always appeal to me even though I am a cat person 100%. The other one looked good when I took it out - by JA Jance but I haven't started it yet.
I just finished the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy and will need to get the third one when I go to work tomorrow. I'll fight the fifth and sixth graders to check it out first!
I also went to Borders the other day and bought 10 books at 70% off. Some were books that appealed to me that day. Others were books I have been wanting to get by authors I like or people had recommended them. One of those was Mothers and Daughters by Rae Meadows. I also picked up books with weaving and knitting being major themes - those themes fit me as well as dog books do. Speaking of which I just noticed another book has sewing in the title????? Many of the books are about family relationships including Losing Charlotte which I have been eyeing for awhile.
My gym bag book is about running a marathon on all 7 continents. I like it but don't love it so far. It is very easy to leave in my gym bag and save it to read when I can at the gym. But it may get better! I have a few other running books to get to and I also got the book about Matt Long when it came out in paperback. Can't wait to read that one.
Choices, choices, too many choices!!
Plus I have other new books I have not gotten to yet and I have all kinds of books I want to reread! And my Amazon cart is full of books I just might decide I can't live without.
I am always looking for recommendations of books so let me know if you are reading something wonderful please let me know!
And thanks so much for all the heartfelt and thoughtful comments on my last post. I heard from people I have never heard from before. Thank you all of you for taking the time to comment and share your thoughts with me.
