I’m going to try to write one of these every week. First, it gets me writing. It gets me past any writers block with an easy post that doesn’t take a ton of time from school. Second, it holds me accountable for reading a book a week. Granted, some books really do take a long time to read even when I am keeping up on my reading. But unless the book I’m reporting on is 500+ pages, give me the stink eye if I report the same book two weeks in a row. Other weeks I might report on 3 books because each book alone was a 3 hour read.
As we speak it is 3:04 on what is to be Tuesday morning. This post goes live in 7 hours. A little less, really. I am just now finally beginning A Separate Peace. Which, I know. But I’m hoping to have it nearly read by the time this goes live. So cross your fingers for me?
I did manage to finish The Fitzgerald short stories! It’s not that I didn’t like them, it’s just that every time I became invested in them, the story would end and I’d have to reinvest. And not all the stories were as worthy of the investment as others. So it was a long and drawn out read. But I finally decided it was time I finished and finish I did!
The bible was on target but so confusing. My mom asked what version I was reading and I didn’t have an answer but I think the version she’s handed me will be easier for a beginner reader. I think after this week’s novel, which was last week’s novel, I’m going to get caught up on the bible. Or at least try. We shall see.
You are welcome to find me and friend me on Goodreads if you would like to see my read, to-read, and currently reading lists. It’s a great site for finding great books. And I love going to the library and pulling up my to-read list. I have also made both a list of books I own and a list of books I want to be sure to buy, which is very handy when I’m browsing Half Priced Books clearance shelves.
I have not been paid to promote anything with this post. The only thing I aim to promote is my love of reading and I have not been paid anything. Unless you want to pay me. Then you’re welcome to. Didn’t think so. *wink*
