Hurray (Oh No!!), it's finally here!
Look what I picked up today. At long last, the book I've been on the waiting list for at my library for almost six months has finally arrived!
I'm very excited to start it. I love being absorbed in a good book and I'm always on the search for engrossing fiction books with strong character development. I also have a growing love for memoirs of all kinds.
For now, I'll just put it on my nightstand right ...here...uhhhhh, uh oh.
My county library system apparently has a sense of humor. It seems that ALL the books I've been on the waiting list for, regardless of where I was on that list, have all come in for me at the SAME time.
And I've only got 3 weeks to read them all.
If you don't hear from me for a while, at least you'll have a pretty good guess as to how I'm spending my free time.
I love hearing about what other people are reading and seeing their want-to-read lists. Here's what's on my nightstand currently, if you're interested and can't make out the titles in the photo:
The Cookbook Collector, by Allegra Goodman
Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void, by Mary Roach
