Clearing the Nightstand

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I’ve been busy clearing my nightstand. I had a lot of books in progress and I just felt like I had gotten stuck with some books. They weren’t bad but I wasn’t that motivated to finish them.

So I’ve cleared off the books that were lingering and have moved on. Of course I was a bit bummed out that I had to put off The School of Essential Ingredients and The Wednesday Sisters as I’ve heard so many good things about these two books but somehow they just weren’t meeting my expectations. The first one reminded me too much of another book and the Sisters book had me going crazy trying to distinguish the characters, not a good thing. Would I pick these book up another time? Maybe.

I’ve decided to try reading one book at a time again as typically when life gets a bit hectic that seems to work best for me. And, to prove it I finished two books this weekend! I read a good psychological thriller, Deceptions by Rebecca Frayn and a cute romantic comedy, Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I’ll tell you more about these soon.

In the meantime, I’m charging up my Kindle so I can take advantage of Sourcebooks eBook Specials. I so want to read The Winter Sea. I have to tell you that my Kindle has pretty much been collecting dust. I got it back in the Spring and have only read one book on it and a short story. It’s neat but I think that what stops me from using it is the fact that I have hundreds of unread books. But I’m hoping to get my money’s worth out of my Kindle when we go on vacation soon.

Alright, have a wonderful week ahead everyone and more book talk soon. I can’t wait to visit your blogs and see what you’ve been reading.
