In honor of the beginning of the first ever BookSwap (which I am so excited about!), I thought I would talk about one of the books I'm reading right now. It's called the THIRTEENTH TALE. (see sidebar) It was a little slow to get going but now I am completely hooked. I haven't been this enthralled by a book in a long time. (I think SHADOW OF THE WIND was the last book that drew me in like this) I don't want to put it down. In fact, I'm feeling a little resentful of work for getting in the way of my reading! I'll let you know if it fulfills its promise.
In other news, I was unpacking a box of new books for the library today and saw that MARCH by Geraldine Brooks had won the Pulitzer. I thought that book was absolutely awful. It should have been called DEATH MARCH because that is what it felt like to read it. Oh, well.
At least I have something good to read.
