Hello fellow Saloners! I'm getting a bit of a late start with my post today, but it seems to be the pattern of this past week. Simply put, there's just not enough time in a day to do all the things I need to do. It's very easy to get overwhelmed, but I won't go into all of that! I'll spare you, so just be thankful! I think now with the time change, it'll work in my favor. I'm more active when its light outside. When it's dark, my body thinks it's time for sleep!
I did manage to accomplish a few things this week. I posted my thoughts on Truman Capote's IN COLD BLOOD, the book that really got under my skin. It is an amazing book and if you haven't read it, I encourage you to do so. You can read my thoughts here.
I also finished reading THE TRIUMPH OF DEBORAH and will post that review in a day or so. Like I mentioned earlier, time just wasn't on my side this week and even though I did manage to finish writing my review for this book, I don't want to rush into posting it. So, sorry for the delay. I know many of you commented to me that you're looking forward to the review, but I want to make sure I do it justice. I hoping this week will allow me more uninterrupted time to complete what I feel will be a good review.
I participated in Musing Mondays, hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page and her musing was about reading habits. More specifically, skimming or skipping whole chapters. It sparked a lot of conversation and interesting comments.
MizB asked 'What's the best book you've never read?' on Booking Through Thursday. Wow, just when I thought I'd make a dent in my TBR pile, this comes along and I'm reminded of so many great books out there that I need to read! I really enojoyed reading every one's answers and remembering books that I had almost forgotten about. A few that I kept seeing mentioned were THE BOOK THIEF and THE POISONWOOD BIBLE and of course, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, which was on my list as well. Now I need to re-examine the order of my TBR pile.
I only received one new book this week to review. It's in the Christian Fiction genre and it's called SAINTS IN LIMBO, which I think is a great title. It's set to be released in May. I'd like to thank the author, River Jordan for sending me this advanced copy. You can read a bit about the book here.
That's about it for last week. As for the rest of today, I'm planning on relaxing and curling up with JANE EYRE. The trouble I have with reading two (or more) books at a time is that it bothers me when one gets ignored for a day or two. I've been reading this book for THREE WEEKS!! That's crazy!! However, I have read several other books at the same time, but I'm realizing I don't like doing that. I like focusing on one book at a time. I feel like I'm neglecting Jane, so today, I'm all hers!!
What are you reding today? Are you cheating on one book in order to read another?
