JP teases me. When he tries to describe how great something is, he starts with, "Picture a good book while lying beside the pool." (insert sad dog howl sound bite) I want, I want!
Since our finances are currently on siesta leave, I'm reviewing what's already on my shelves, but somehow I never got around to. Or, more precisely, started and loved, but got interrupted, and then got buried under other books.
- Love in the Driest Season, by Neely Tucker
- Rebecca's Tale, by Sally Beauman
- Tess of the D'urbervilles, by Thomas Hardy
- A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens
- Open & Shut, First Degree, and Sudden Death, all by David Rosenfeld
- La's Orchestra Saves the World, by Alexander McCall Smith
- Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver
Clearly, I'm covered until such time as our duckets return from the South of France, but Oh! Oh! The Bookstores! So many lovelies I want to swan dive into. Dream lists to follow later, when I can stand the temptation. If you're loving a good story right now, let me in on it. Have library, will flash card.
Also, will someone kindly contact my boss and imitate last week's cough?
