Good reading last week, too:
- I finally had a chance to finish a wonderful new book, How To Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and Their Caregivers written by a friend of mine, Toni Bernhard. The book is an inspirational guide for anyone dealing with challenges in life (and who isn't?). I posted a review on my other blog, Book By Book.
- I started Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden for my library's book discussion next week. I'm probably the last person on earth to read this best-seller. It's one of those books that I never would have read if not for a book group - it just didn't sound appealing to me, despite all the good reviews. Boy, was I wrong! It's so compelling and well-written, I was hooked from the first chapter.
- Jamie, 15, did manage some reading on his trip - he read City of Ashes, book 2 in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series. He's loving this series recommended by a friend of ours.
- Craig, 12, started The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin - part of his summer reading assignment for school.
- My husband, Ken, finally got his hands on a copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first book in Stieg Larsson's hot thriller trilogy. He was still only #137 on the waiting list at the library, so a friend lent it to him.
- On our car trips back and forth to drop off and pick up the kids, we finished listening to First Light by Rebecca Stead on audio. We all loved it - review to come!
