Over My Head

I've over-committed myself reading-wise this month. I'm in the middle of three books, and I really need to get started on a fourth.

I'm about 1/4 the way through Emma. I became a total Jane Austen slacker. I haven't even watched the new Sense and Sensibility on PBS yet!


I'm nearly 1/2 way through The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters. Dan and I read it out loud to each other in the car on the way to Florida last Saturday. A classmate of ours from the BYU accounting program wrote it (talk about a career change!) and we are really enjoying it.

I've also started The Book Thief for this online book group I just joined. I am finding this book quite fascinating, and I'm so excited about the book group. It's just that it isn't exactly light Spring Break fare.

Finally, I need to get a move on The Other Boleyn Girl for my in person book club this month. I have heard totally mixed reviews about this book, and I'm a little apprehensive as to what I'm going to think.

In the meantime, I just came across this list and decided I've got even more reading ahead of me if I want to create the "perfect library".

Perfection may have to wait.

I haven't heard of the 13th Reality, but it's on my TBR list now. You do have many books on your plate right now. I always get anxious when that happens to me - I'm a more of a "one at a time" reader.

BTW, I am thrilled you've joined us over at the nook :)

No, The Book Thief isn't spring break fare. And I can totally empathize: perfection will have to wait. There is just too many books to read and not enough time.

My daughter wrote a review of one of Dashner's books and he commented on her blog. She was pretty tickled.

I liked The Other Boleyn Girl and I absolutely LOVED Book Thief. I look forward to your thoughts about each of them.

I just finished reading 4 books at once - Why do we do that? Why not?

I am about half way through Emma as well. I still can not determine if I actually read this book years and years ago or if I am just super familiar with the story because of film versions. I am enjoying it though.

I always overcommit myself and this month more than normal! And now I feel like I'm reading and reading and never finishing anything! Good luck getting your books read.

Perfection will have to wait for me. I prefer my current library to the one 'they' deem to be perfect. :)
