I finished The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen and now I can hardly stand that I have to wait for the next in the series. It’s very good. I decided I need a break from crime fiction and picked up the first book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It’s The Lightning Thief and I have to say I think I was hooked as soon as I saw that the title of the first chapter is “I accidentally vaporize my Pre-Algebra teacher".
For my audiobook I’m still listening to The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party by Alexander McCall Smith. I should finish that up today since I’ve got some driving to do today. I haven't decided for sure what's next. I updated my ipod last night with a new set of books so I'll go with whatever whim strikes when I finish the current one.
Other than books and reading:
For feeling like I’ve been busy I really don’t have a lot to show for it beyond a bunch of to do lists that seem to grow as fast as I check things off. I’m counting down the days until college football starts. It’s been a long football-less few months.
Added to my TBR List (To Be Read) this week:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I’ve seen enough chat from folks I trust about this one to decide to add it to my list. I think I’m going to wait until the library has the audio version though.
Purchased this week:
I didn’t buy anything this week. I’m trying to not get distracted by the shiny new stuff long enough to read a few that I already have and catch up on a few review books I’ve committed to reading.
I know I said I wasn’t going to check out books from the library beyond the one I already had, but I’m a victim of the hold list. I’ve been on the waiting list for Turn of Mind and it came in this week. Now I just need to get it read before it’s due back. I’m hedging my bets and keeping my name on the waiting list at the other library just in case.
Have a great weekend!!
