It might take me a while to slip in some reading here and there but I
do actually give up some quilting time in
order to read.
The key word is some.
Not a whole lot but some!
I finally decided that my substitute format of entertainment
would be reading because I just
don't read as much as I would like to!
I bought a Kindle Fire and am actually able
to check books out!
Our local library is very small... so this gives me
to have great access to a wide variety of books.
These are books that I have read since the first of the year.
I loved Out of Africa (from way back when)
and Circling the Sun is a story from
the same place and time and people!
But this is another person's story...
I wish I could have lived back then and had
known them all!
There is a reason that this was such a popular book
and a good movie...
I loved this incredible story!
This book was enchanting.
First of all... I have a degree in Interior Design
from when I was a city/beach girl..
long before I created a simple life in the mountains
for myself.. but had I stayed in the city...
I would have been the main character of this book!
That's all I'm saying.
I loved this story!
This was a heart wrenching book.
Too much sad reality.
It was excellent.
I am just finishing up The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
This one seems to keep getting bumped for another book
and set aside but I do really enjoy it.
I am just finishing it up but plan on reading it again...
I am sure the second time it will be easier to
connect the dots between all the people mentioned.
That really has slowed me down.
The next book I am anxious to start reading is:
The Lemoncoly Life of Annie Aster.
I have a few friends that have formed a reading group
and this is the book chosen for our next get together/discussion.
Have a wonderful weekend!
