Good morning. I hope you've had a good week and a relaxing weekend! And I hope you're one of the lucky ones to have this Martin Luther King Jr. Day off. Unfortunately, I'll be working all day.
I got a lot of reading done last week. I read my first ebook on my Nook: When Pigs Fly by Bob Sanchez. This was a very funny story of an ex-cop who is going to spread his friend's ashes over the Grand Canyon, and a group of misfit criminals who are trying to get the lottery ticket that is hidden in the urn. I still need to write my review, but should have it up soon.
I also read Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, Ronald Cotton and Erin Torneo. This was a memoir about a woman who picks her rapist out of a line-up, only to find 11 years later that it was the wrong man. Very interesting. I look forward to discussing it with my book club this week, and I'll put up a review of this one soon too.
I reviewed Blue by Lou Aronica, which I had finished the week before. This was a wonderful story of relationships and the power of imagination. I really enjoyed it.
And finally, I shared some more books I've been reading with my kids, including a book about Martin Luther King Jr.
I'm currently reading Repairing Rainbows by Lynda Fishman, a memoir of her life after her mother and sisters died in a plane crash when she was 13 years old.
I'm not sure what I'm going to move on to after that. I have several books on my Nook now, and several books on my bookshelf. I guess it depends on what I'm in the mood for later this week!
