Reading update. Again.

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

With 2 months to go til the end of my reading goal, I only have 16 books left on my Goodreads to-read list from the original 89 books. I am looking forward to finishing this goal. It was worthy. I feel like I got some books read that I had been putting off. But I will be glad to feel free to read whatever comes my way.

Finally, a book I want to tell you about.

Just look at that cover. Don’t you just want to curl up in that chair? Okay okay, I know I’m a cover slut. But I read about this book in BookPage magazine and I knew I had to read it. Unfortunately, my library was not ordering Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading. What?! This cannot be. A library without a book about the healing power of books and reading? What kind of library is that? So I pulled some strings and they ordered five copies.

They finally came in the other day and I started reading. I didn’t want to stop. I took the book to church with me on Sunday, even though I knew I wouldn’t have a chance to read it. I just didn’t want to leave it behind. I finished it yesterday and took it back to the library for someone else to enjoy, but I could only do that because I intend to buy a copy for myself.
