Ok, so I was a bad blogger and didn’t give very many suggestions this week. For someone who is only working part time-ish I really should have been doing better. But Sherlock Holmes is sucking up my life, as well as many random activities with the family.
So I think I only suggested Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. Great reads, check them out, and thanks to a couple of readers I was happily making book lists as well and getting some interesting comments on what I should check out for myself!
Thanks for reading, and keep sending me comments. Please remember, I won’t post the comments when giving out book lists, but I think I will make a suggestion page for what other readers are suggesting to me to read.
Have a good weekend, I’m about to have a birthday bonanza weekend with my baby sister and Nonna! 😀
I’ve been slacking today on this, but I went to Toronto today so I have an excuse.
Since I am reading the eighth and final installment of Sherlock Holmes I have been trying to get that done instead of writing some new stuff about other books. Let me get you up to speed though on how this book is going.
I like these books, perhaps even love them, but I have always and probably will forever, haaaaate short stories. I don’t see the point of them. Why tell a story for twenty pages and then switch? Do you have writing A.D.D.? You can’t get into a book properly if it’s a short story, it just irks me.
I’m only on the fortieth page. Looks like I’m going to be tortured for the next month reading this bad boy. OR I can start reading it out loud to myself in a British mans voice again, that always helps… I like to do that from time to time, haha. The Sookie Stackhouse books I read some out loud to myself in a southern accent. Makes Bill funnier.
On that crazy note, update me on what you’re reading! I love to hear book suggestions and ideas,
Have a happy Thursday 🙂
