I’m trying something a little new today—Judy at Patchwork Times has started a new feature on her blog—Whatcha Reading and I’m gonna participate! Is it another “thing” in my life to waste more time??? I hope not, I love to read and I love to get ideas for new books from other readers. Judy likes the same kind of books I do—historical fiction, love stories. I will on occasion read non-fiction if it is something which interests me. I don’t usually like mysteries and definitely don’t like those graphic, scary murder books.
My friend Kelly from Kansas City is also a vicarious reader and likes the same kind of books I do. She recently sent me a box of “real” books she obtained from volunteering at her local library—volunteers get first pick from the books which are donated to the library. One of the books was Sarah’s Key. Such a sad, heart wrenching tale of Jews caught in France during Hitler’s rein. A very good read.
Now I’ve just started The Age of Dreaming by Nina Revoyr a novel about a silent film star who abruptly ended his career and is now being pursued by a journalist with a screenplay in mind. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
