I count 14 books on my side of the bed and 0 on Brian’s side of the bed. I can’t imagine having so much space on my nightstand!
Most of the books are garage sale finds, or books passed along to me. When I run out of those, I go to the library and come home with at least 10 books. Occasionally, I find a book that I feel is deserving of space on my shelf (and money out of my pocket). But getting books from the library or second hand works for me; if I don’t like the first 30 or so pages, I just skip it.
I just read “Blessings” by Anna Quindlen. The story line to this book is really great, but the style of writing wasn’t my favorite. I often caught myself re-reading to make sure I understood what was going on.
I also just finished something off of Oprah’s book list. I can’t even remeber the title….Let me tell you, I’ve been disappointed over and over by the books with her sticker on them. Obviously, I shouldn’t be taking book recommendations from her. What’s on your reading list this summer?
