I think that I'm a bit behind where I was last year at this time.


I'm going to finish Secret Daughter today. It seems like I've been carrying it around forever because I haven't done a lot of commute reading.


After I finish SD, I'm going to start The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe. I requested it from the library and just realized that it's the 2nd in the series. I hope that it can be read as a stand alone. For my commute read, I going to take along The Perfection Of The Morning by Sharon Butala.

Jenn,


I got busy yesterday and didn't get it finished. So far, I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure if the writing is a bit choppy or if it just seems that way because it was my carrying around book for too long.

I just this morning finished Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. It's one I've had on my shelves for quite a while. It was a fantastic book set in our modern day age. It's a thriller dealing with computer security and privacy ethics. It was an amazing read that doesn't require you to be a computer whiz to understand. Anyone would enjoy it if you like mysteries or thrillers.

Now I'm on to The Two Marys by Sylvia Browne. This is one I got from the bargain shelves at Barnes and Nobel the last time I got to go on a book spree, which was eons ago.

Then one more book from my shelves and I get to go to the library again! YAY!!!

I've read a lot less this year than last year. I've only read 15 books this year. I had read 15 by April last year. Luckily I know exactly why I've read less this year and it's for the good, so I'm extremely happy that I'm not hiding from real life inside a book.

Hello!


Still working through We Two: Victoria and Albert. It's interesting, but slow, and I'm not really liking Albert very much. After that I'm reading Murder in Clichy and Murder in Montmatre. I won't have time to read the book on Da Vinci, Machiavelli, and Cesare Borgia. Will have to put it back on hold.


I got Samantha Bee's book from the library yesterday (I Know I am, But What are You?). Looks like it's going to be pretty funny!

Well, my knee bent backwards early Monday morning at work, so I can't do my usual walking and gymming.
