It’s fun to have the chance to catch up on books and Monday seems a good day for it. Thanks to Sheila at Book Journey for starting this. It’s fun and when I’m finished reading and commenting (hint-hint…) on many of the blogs that join this link up each week, I end up with quite a few books to add to my to be read list.
I have to admit, I’ve fallen behind a bit in my reading.
I did finish Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.
I enjoyed it. As I got closer and closer to the end, I thought the main character was going to make a choice that would have soured me on the book, but she made the decision I hoped for.
I’m currently reading The Gilly Salt Sisters by Tiffany Baker. Sheila, yes That Sheila recommended it and I’m glad I took her suggestion.
I’m really enjoying this book. Strange thing though and I wonder if this is a problem for anyone else. The copy I got from the library is the large print version. For some reason, a large print book slows me down when I’m reading it. You’d think with my bad eyesight a large print book would be better, but it’s not. Curious if anyone else has this same issue.
I have one other thing that was book related. Last week sometime, Ralph and I were out and we picked up the DVD of Hugo.
It was a wonderful movie. I watched it somewhere around 4 am Saturday into Sunday after waking at 2:30 am. It was worth staying up for. Now it makes me want to read the book.
Have to keep my eye out for it at thrift stores and library sales. Or I could actually buy it. Oh, the horrors!! 😉
That’s what I’m reading at the moment. Hope to put a good dent in The Gilly Salt Sisters today and then get on with my Chronicles of Narnia reading as I had intended.
