I had to give up on The Thirteenth Tale Diane Setterfield. I was listening to it in the car and got to tape 7 of 13, side 1 and I just could not go on with it. Intriguing as it was, it depressed me no end. And I can't explain why.
My philosophy is that life is too short to continue with bad books or books that aren't keeping me sparked for whatever reason. This one was losing the spark.
I am moving on to We're Just Like You Only Prettier: Confessions of a Tarnished Southern Belle Celia Rivenbark. I think it will be like a sorbet between courses, cleanse my palate.
My other book choices are banner. I am moving right along in bedside book Aunt Dimity and the Duke Nancy Atherton and hope to get more reading soon in purse book High Heels are Murder Elaine Viets.
Because I couldn't help myself, while I was B&N picking up gift cards for two teachers who are favorites of Lady K and are leaving the school she attends, I meandered the stacks and found Jim Butcher Dead Beat a Dresden File book. I enjoy the series, but haven't read any of the books yet. Figured Mt Git'r'Read could stand an addition.....
Okay, back to cleaning the floors like I am supposed to be....then the afternoon is mine.
