On My Bookshelf
by Elizabeth Kostova
This is one of those rare books that I can’t wait to pick up and read each day. I am savoring every word, every page. I love it! It has a vampire theme and I can’t get enough of it. I was one of those readers who read Ann Rice’s “Interview with a Vampire” and then eagerly awaited each new novel in the series. And of course watched the movie. I also immediately took to “Twilight” and zipped through that series in about 4 days. (Come to think of it, that is the last book I read I couldn’t put down.) I also don’t have cable, but have loved watching the first series of True Blood on Netflix. So that may explain part of my love of this book, but also the writing itself along with the unfolding mystery in it makes me eager to read on.
Well I’m not really reading anything else right now, but will get back to them:
The Gift of a Year
by Mira Kirshenbaum
I am about half way through this only because I forgot The Historian when I took my kids to an hourlong program at the library and had this book waiting for me. It was recommended on the French Chic Yahoo Group, I think. I like it so far.
The Art of Simple Food
by Alice Waters
This is on my list of books to buy, but until I do, I just keep checking it out at the library!
When Will There Be Good News
by Kate Atkinson
Another one to read in the future. I actually bought this at half-price books after I had some cash from turning in other books. I can’t remember who recommended it to me, but someone I respected or I wouldn’t have written it down.
by Julie Kramer
One of my many wonderful SIL’s loaned me this book after she mentioned it and I was interested. Another future read.
I think these will be part of my plans for winter. I want to become a chess master, but not sure I have the motivation or time to really accomplish that, so I do know I want to join a chess club and play more this winter.
