I’m moving. Life is crazy. Squeezing in reading time has been challenging!
The hardest part about packing up all of our belongings is figuring out what to do with all the books. All five hundred of them! Some have found good homes already with several more being mailed off. That still leaves four hundred seventy-five to dispose of properly. I am seriously considering a “books only” garage sale.
I should be packing, but I wanted to update anyone out there who comes over to check out the pages I have turned.
What am I currently reading?
I bought this book and its companion The Things She Wrote to Him, I think, several years ago at the Shipshewana Auction (an Amish auction in north central Indiana). I am sure I bought them for very little and because of their intriguing titles. I came upon them recently in the packing process. Score!!! These little gems (this one first published in 1914, which this one is an orginal, and the companion book, published in 1930) are letters written between recently met romantic prospects. Each book documents the writings solely from that person, and not responses from adressee. So far, they are romantic and thought provoking, which is intriguing in and of themselves since they were written over 100 and 80 years ago respectively. I will report back when I am finished with both, and it won’t take long.
I am enjoying the heck out of this book set in a New England bookstore!
What have I recently finished?
Shotgun Lovesongs was very good!
I was afraid I would only "just like" this book because I thought What Alice Forgot was good, not great. This book continually lead me through twists and turns. Just when I thought it would most likely/probably become complacent, it more than held my attention and interest. Well done, Liane Moriarty!!! This book is really very good.
What will you read next?
An Untamed State…probably!
And, of course, I will be listening to something as well!
As always, thank you MizB at Should Be Reading for hooking all of us Bibliophiles up with one another!
