Just barely. It is almost July 2 already! Time just keeps flying…
Last night, June 30, we met to discuss “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” I haven’t started the second book yet, but Jess was more than 2/3 done and feeling like she didn’t want to put it down! It’s definitely going to get read this weekend. I can’t wait. But I think we had a good discussion last night, even though the page numbers in the questions didn’t correlate with the paperback copies of the book, so we had to guess sometimes what they were asking. The movie comes out on DVD next week so maybe we’ll meet again and watch the movie after we’ve read all the books. Our goal is to discuss the second book by the end of July.
So since I read that first book I’ve read a few Oprah magazines (I’m so ahead of the game!) and some lighter books – which I thoroughly enjoyed! I was ripping through them quickly for a while! But then i did more magazine reading (and baseball watching) and didn’t get as much reading done. Now today I started a Jane Green book from the library (curse you, library, for your temptations!) and I’m half done. I would like to re-read the 7th Harry Potter book before the movie comes out in November – I have no memory of the plot of that book. It was the last book I read before the flood and my brain changed for a while (maybe forever?) and it is just gone. So I’ll re-do. Gladly. I loved those books.
So my pile of books to read next include: “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” “Best Friends Forever,” “The Stormchasers,” “South of Broad,” “Everything She Thought She Wanted,” and now, “Other People’s Weddings.” Hard to choose where to start. So I chose Jane Green. “The Other Woman,” about a woman’s mother-in-law from hell.
I must say, I like blogging. It’s probably boring for those who read (if anyone reads – wink wink) but I missed writing these last few weeks. No excuses… just busy with kiddo stuff. Gracie and Rees were here one Monday and last Monday I was feeling a little punky. I think it was allergies, as the meds seem to be helping.
And now I’m so excited about heading to the lake – I’m bringing three books along and if I read them all (unlikely) there is a walmart close and I can find something else! As I remember about our trip to FL in March, it’s hard to read a lot when your eyes are closed and you are worshiping the sun. So we’ll see what I get read.
I haven’t finished packing yet, but I’m going to get up early. So… off to read!
