I have had a good week away and got through several books I had been wanting to read. First I read The Arrangement by Suzanne Forster, a paperback about a young woman with amnesia, then I read Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali a biography by a young woman who was born in Somali, then because of civil war grew up in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, and Kenya. She was born a Muslim and this is her tale about her life through her leaving her family and becoming a citizen in Holland. Very, very interesting! I then read 7 Things You Better Have Nailed Down Before All Hell Breaks Loose by Robert D. Wolgemuth. I am now reading The Morcai Battlion by Diana Palmer a sci-fi that is really fun. Not as many books as I usually read on vacation but I got a few of those, “I have got to read this” out of my way.
I finished The Missing Manatee by Cynthia DeFelice and it was a good story. I also passed my test and I am on the bus!! I am going to read a book by Jennifer Wiener, In Her Shoes that Janelle suggested, this is a new author in our library.
Mrs. Wasson is reading a new book we have entitled Paint the Wind, a horse book that she is enjoying. Mrs. Murray is reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, this is a book I read in High School and at the time thought it was the best book ever written, we will be purchasing a copy. I finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy, a very dark, depressing novel the reviews talk about hope at the end of the story but it was not a big enough punch to counter balance the rest of the novel for me. I am reading The Missing Manatee by Cynthia DeFelice, this will be my 13th WAW (if I pass the test!!) and I will be on that bus!
Look at the new material page, Janet Evanovich, Clive Cussler, Jennifer Crusie, Meg Cabot and more! Fun stuff!!
I just finished Up Close and Personal by Fern Michaels a fun romance and have decided to read The Road by Cormac McCarthy, it is the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize.
