I’m not a quitter. Never have been and probably never will be. There are very few things in life that I start and don’t finish. It’s just how I roll. But…
The book I’ve been reading for eons and eons and seriously more eons isn’t getting finished. According to Libby I’ve picked it up 13 times and read for 2 hours and 58 mins. There is a mere 5 hours and 19 mins at the current rate. But…
It’s like a medical textbook- guaranteed to put at least your mind to sleep if not your body. The thing is I do want to finish it. It’s about ADD and apparently it’s one of the best recent books on the subject. I let the last loan lapse and will pick it up again. Perhaps on a road trip. Nah I would definitely fall asleep. Hey maybe it would work on insomnia?
I have been reading even though this time I told myself no other books while I had Scattered Minds on the bookshelf. I don’t want to dissect too closely what that might mean…
When I finished Liliac GirlS I headed straight to the good “old” web to see if this author had any more books. It’s always nice to stumble on a trilogy after it’s written as it means you have some direction for what’s next on the bookshelf.
I just finished The Sunflower Sisters. The background for all three novels are true family diaries and letters. They are historical fiction in that they pull in some imaginary characters into the real context of the time. It appears I’ve read them out of order as Lost Roses is the second book. They are each stand alone stories though so quite certain this is one of those actual no harm no fowl scenarios.
While I await its arrival in Libby I am reading What Happened to You? It’s an interesting look at how the early years of our lives have such an incredibly profound impact on our personalities. Somehow it’s not quite as dry as Scattered Minds but I am only 26% through so we shall see if I get it read in one loan period.
As an aside I really enjoy the #whatsonyourbookshelfchallenge challenge each month as I note down titles for future reads. It’s nice too connect with those that are happy to curl up and read a good book. 3 of the hostesses; Sue, Deb and Jo are Australian and often the books they enjoy aren’t available on Libby which always bums me out. I occasionally do a library request for a specific book but I site miss my two librarian friends, now retired, who always took such good care of me!
Happy reading everyone. I may disappear for a while as I’ve decided it’s time to read ALL of the L.M. Montgomery books before our fall trip to PEI. The cover photo was chosen because of her impact on readers around the world.
Always happy to hear from those that follow along here. Let me know what is on your bookshelf or perhaps your most favourite read. Now that would be a good post wouldn’t it!
