I am reading 5 books right now. If we were talking about food, you would say my eyes are too big for my stomach. Not too sure what the literary equivalent would be, but the message is still communicated fairly effectively.
Blame it on my advanced reading level.
Or the fact that I am a stereotypical Gemini. Easily Bored multi-tasker. Interested in a variety of topics and stories.
It probably has something to do with my job as well. I work in a public library and every day I am there, talking books with co-workers and customers. I check books in. I check them out. RA. It is difficult not to come home with an armful after each shift!
So I read. A lot. And usually many at one time.
I have made it a personal goal … er, limit, to try to keep to one type of each book. Originally, I was going to limit myself to 1 book checked out from the library at a time. This rule developed because I had had certain books out for months that I hadn’t finished *ahem started* yet. But of course, it didn’t stick. So now the rule is one book per type.
So what am I reading these days?
Well, on my ipad I am reading my personal copy of Devil’s Game by Joanna Wylde. It is book three in my favourite MC romance series and I will post a review shortly. I was trying to re-read the whole series before her new book, Shade’s Lady, comes out tomorrow, but I am only half way there so I think the others will have to wait until the following new release for a re-read.
I also started The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I checked this out through my library’s Cloud Library e-book program. I read it a loooong time ago when I was way too young to appreciate the story. Like, I was in elementary. And now that the miniseries is coming out, I wanted to read it again before I watch the show.
I am also reading a library book called The Wealthy Renter by Alex Avery. It was just released in the fall of 2016 so I am hoping it will help shed some light on the current housing situation in Canada (bubble!) and hopefully make me feel better that I will probably never be able to afford to purchase my own home.
Lately, I always seem to have a religious text on the go. Currently it is the Book of Mormon.
Finally, the audiobook. I am listening to The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. This book is emotionally charged and incredibly well-written, but I have to listen at the right time and place, because I end up crying every two or three chapters. Not a great on-the-way-to-work book! Unless raccoon eyes are in vogue in your workplace.
So what else do I have on the go? Well, I’m working on learning a few recipes from an Indian cookbook, but don’t really classify that as reading. Starting tomorrow, I will be working on the aforementioned Shade’s Lady (obviously). I also just picked up three books about buying a car and tips for women when negotiating with a car salesman. I have already picked out the vehicle I want and am saving up a bigger downpayment, because the monthly payments were a little high, but I want to make sure I get the best deal possible (duh). So of course I went to the trusty library for advice!
