I thought that this would be a fun way to start the day since it’s THURSDAY!!
I’m having a good time reading this book…
Lost in a good book by Jasper Fforde. I listened to the first in the series, The Eyre Affair on audio when I was still commuting. Funny story, I had gotten this and the next book in the series at the library book sale. I didn’t remember that I had read the first book, wanted to start at the beginning, got the first book from the library. When I went to list the book in Goodreads, it told me I had already read it!! Duh!!! As I’ve been reading Lost In A Good Book, I’m remembering parts of the first book now.
It’s fun and it’s based on the premise (my interpretation) that books are living things and all kinds of good and bad things can happen in the relationship between humans and the characters in the books. That’s not a good interpretation, but it’s early and my coffee hasn’t quite taken hold yet!
Regardless of my bad description, I’m really enjoying this. I started reading it because I wanted something light that I was pretty certain I would enjoy for the actual driving part of our trip. However, I may be finished before we leave. I have the next one ready to start. Oh yes, the reason for the title…the main character is Thursday Next. Seems I’ve also used the word “next” quote a few times already without intending to!
Speaking of books, I’m already re-thinking what I’ve already packed in my book “suitcase” for the trip. Some of my finds from the library book sale on Saturday need to come along for the ride, so I’ve got a re-do to do!
Speaking of suitcases, I’m mostly packed. Ralph…I’m not so sure. I’ve got all of my regular clothes in my big suitcase, and I’ve started on my overnight bag. Just need to remember socks…just remembered I forgot socks…Yikes! Now I just have to pack up the snack bags ( oh yeah, I have to BUY them first!) and the food stuff bags that we’re taking. I hope this car we get has a Really Big trunk!
Yesterday I had the most beautiful walk you can imagine! The sky was clear and the weather almost felt like Fall! Incredible! Today will be my last walk before vacation. I have to go to Weight Watchers to weigh in tomorrow (not looking forward to it…) because I won’t be able to go on Saturday! Don’t like to exercise before weighing in.
So that’s Thursday…a little disjointed, but then…that’s what you’re used to! Let’s get the feet on the pavement, One More Time!
Happy Thursday! Next!!
