I can definitely identify with this quote! I'd love for great books to go on and on! (I guess that means the author knows to stop while they're on top - I've also read books that were good, until the ending dragged on...)

What are you reading this week?

What will you pick next?

I'm reading Erak's Ransom, the seventh Ranger's Apprentice novel (John Flanagan). I still have a bookmark in The Jane Austen Marriage Manual (Kim Izzo) but since I'm not hooked on the character or plot as yet, it's been slow-going. I hardly read at all last week. :(

Next I will likely get around to requesting the final Newpointe 911 novel (Terri Blackstock) 'cause I really do want to finish that series! (I've just forgotten to make the request...) I also have a lot of ebooks collected and suspect that at least one is an unread Susan May Warren, and since I loved the most recent one I should read another soon!

I just finished Focus by Ingrid Ricks. Very good. Will pick something else to start today from my giant TBR list.

I am reading Homegrown & Handmade and getting ready to start The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Next up will be One thousand white women : the journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus.

Glad your last pick was good, Karyn! I need to brush the dust off my old TBR list. I tend to be going between books I'm reviewing and then whatever's handy, but I actually prefer to plan my reading more than that.

Happy reading, Angie! I like the flower title, and your flower siggy! :)

I'm enjoying another Ranger's Apprentice novel and just got a review book from Harlequin. There's always something to read here! :)
