Good morning! 😀
COFFEE CUP and I are here again at the kitchen table. (Oh and also Potato Marley) as now that I have named him… I need to do something besides toss him in the garbage.
Today looks like it is going to be gorgeous – the only day this week that does not call for rain, and of course I am booked solid with work and self-inflicted workouts that I really do not wish to miss…
I have much to share – but came home last night after a wonderful book club night and talked to my friend on the phone for about an hour and by then it was 10:30 at night and I was SHOT. I had worked yesterday, mowed half the lawn – made one of the main dishes for Bookies, went to Bookies, home…. crash.
Yup…. that looks right.
Our Book Club discussion around ROOM was fantastic… while not everyone loved the book, it made for good discussion… maybe one of the better ones we have had in a while. I will be writing up a post centered around this discussion and of course the food we ate – as Bookies – the food aspect just adds to the flavor of the read. 😀
In another completely random thought…. I abandoned two audio this week and started with new ones. Tami Hoag’s The Trouble with J J didn’t last long at all. First of all, when I chose it I did not realize this was an older writing of hers, I thought it was a something new she was trying and different from her usual suspense genre. In short time I discovered it was going to be a giddy romance and not a genre I enjoy at all.
The second one I bid farewell to in short time was Before I Die by Jenny Downham. I did not make it through disc one. The story is about a 16-year-old girl who is dying of cancer and her list of things she wishes to do before she dies. It did not take long to find out the first on her list was sex – and her friend takes her our clubbing (her dad says no – she goes anyway) and picking up guys…. and well…. good-bye to Before I Die.
Instead I am now listening in my car to A Change In Altitude by Anita Shreve and while this first part is a bit confusing – I think I am going to really like it. I also picked up Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky and I am listening to that in my kitchen. That one has already generated some opinions that will more than likely show up in my review. Awesome 😀
Ok – I am out…. but enjoy your day… I would love to hear if you have had any book abandonment as of late.
