, you have great taste! I loved The Shack
as well, and am looking forward to breaking my "never-reread" rule for it--I think it must take 3 or 4 readings to really absorb all the amazing insights in that book! I love Sue Grafton! I read all the alphabet books up to a point, where I had to wait for the next one. By the time it came out and I could get a copy at the library, I'd forgotten so much that I didn't get it. I need to pick up and get back in it again. I'm sure I've gone through at least half of them, and I love her books, especially since Kinsey sometimes travels into my former hometown of Simi Valley.
, I'm so sorry you're feeling listless with reading right now. Do you celebrate a holiday at this time of year? Maybe you can read a book related to the holiday? If you haven't read it yet, I highly, highly recommend the book The Help
. It's phenomenal, and many diverse readers have said so--I think you'd be blown away. It's hard to put down, too. The ones you mentioned are in your TBR pile are a bit more meaty and harder to get into, IMHO.
, I love Nora Roberts! I just listened to an audio book that reminded me of her writing: Simply Perfect
, did McEwan write Atonement
? His name sounds familiar...
No changes for me...I've been so busy I haven't had much time to read. But I did pick up a copy of A Child's Christmas in Wales
by Dylan Thomas, one of the holiday books recommended by Michael Dirda. I put a couple more on hold at the library. I also have South of Broad
by Pat Conroy and Wally Lamb's new one, The Hour I First Believed
, to read for my book club meetings in January. Both are HUGE, so I have a lot of holiday reading to do!
