Speedy Read-y

Isn’t it fun how a great book can draw you in and you can just fly through it?

I wrote before about reading Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. So, I had it checked out from the library for 6 weeks and still haven’t finished it. I have to re-check it out. Yes, I’m interested in how it ends, but, eh it can wait.

When I returned it I checked out If You Ask Me:(And of Course You Won’t) by Betty White. It was a quick easy read. Mostly her opinions about various topics. It is a book that you could read in a day, or pick up read a bit and put back down.

Two days ago my friend, A, let me read her copy of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This is a “young adult” book, but still a good read. It has a little bit of a sci-fiction to it, but not much. I can see how it became so popular. I am a bit sad that, A, doesn’t own all the books, because I would like to read the others in the series. This is another good one day book.

So, back to the library in a few days to return some movies and check out something new.

    Hmmmm, Brings up some memories, three to be exact. War and Peace. The Count of Monte Cristo. Dr. Zhivago. My human suggested I read them. Good stuff but lllllllloooonnnnggggg stuff.
    A person could start reading them in preschool and still be turning pages between filling out social security papers.

    • I love to read and I have powered through a few books that took far too long. Like Anna Karenina. I think about reading War and Peace, but, I don’t know if I can get through two Tolstoy novels in one decade. I might need to space them out ;-). Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
