Another busy weekend has come to an end and it’s back to the grindstone. I was a little disappointed that I was unable to participate in the Dewey’s Readathon this time around, but I was too busy kicking it with some of Cleveland’s finest authors. Maybe you’ve heard of Les Roberts? Yeah, we’re besties now. I had the good fortune to introduce him at the Rocky River Public Library Book Festival. I also brought him lots of coffee and a pilfered cookie. Like I said, besties. And speaking of good fortune, I won a Nook Color. So now, my TBR pile can be both physical and virtual! Add this to the fun little ipod my friend gave me, and I am in a state of technological overload. What do I read first? A book? In paper or on a device? Which device? Mind you, I am NOT complaining. I realize how fortunate I am to have these “problems.” The best part is going to be shopping for e-books for myself and the library. In fact, as soon as I am done here I am off to browse. So, what am I reading?
Ongoing books: I am still listening to High Five by Janet Evanovich (reliably good fun) and Gideon’s Corpse by Douglas Preston (and it is still the cheesiest, chock-full-of-cliche book I have ever read. But I press on. I need to know who did it.)
Finished this week: An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor. I picked this as my gentle read for book club. It was charming and funny and I will definitely continue on with the series.
On my ipod: Ashes by Ilsa Bick. This one has gotten great reviews. My friend loved it and insisted I read it. So far, so good…and a bit gross. The perfect balance to my gentle read.
On my Nook: An e-galley of Dead Time by Anne Cassidy. A mystery set in modern-day London.
My real, live, actual paper and glue book: The List by Siobhan Vivian. The ultimate Mean Girl book. Sort of breaks my heart a little and makes me realize that I got off easy in high school.
Up next: The Power of Six by Pitticus Lore. In paper.
