I'm Still Reading

Wow, I can't believe it has been almost two weeks since I last posted. Things have been crazy at work, and I can't seem to get a second to do anything. Home hasn't been much better, either. My youngest son is graduating from high school in about a week, and there have been so many activities and plans, etc. I don't know if I'm coming or going anymore. But, I have been able to get some reading in even though I haven't been able to review anything. I finished Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman Capote, which fulfilled two objectives for me -- The Year of Reading Dangerously May selection and my first book for Maggie's Southern Reading Challenge. I really did like the book, and I will try to get a review up soon. I'm now reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which is the June selection for Cornflower's book group. I've had this one on my shelf for so long, and I was glad to see this one chosen so I would finally get around to reading it. I haven't gotten very far into it, yet. But, so far, I LOVE it!! I know I read so many wonderful things about this book when it first made it's rounds, and I think I'll probably end up agreeing with all of them.

Hopefully, things will calm down for me soon, and I can get back to my daily reading of all of your blogs and posting on here.

Jill, thanks I am loving it so far. Everything is fine, except I'm soooo busy, I haven't had time to be online much at all lately. But, it'll be O.K. Hope everything is well with you. Enjoy the summer with your guys. :)

I've noticed a slow down in blogging across the board. I can't wait to read your review of The Book Thief! Great one!

natasha, I've noticed the same thing. I'm glad to see it's not only me. :) I'm about 3/4 of the way though The Book Thief and absolutely love it.

May and June are so busy, especially if you have a graduate in the family - congratulations!

I haven't read The Book Thief, but I've been seeing lots of great reviews.

ravenousreader, Thanks! I highly recommend the Book Thief. I'm really enjoying it. I feel kind of strange saying that I enjoy it when the subject matter is so dark, but it's a great book.
