summer vacation via my library card

tuesdays unwrapped at cats 

We aren't traveling anywhere this summer.  Job transition for hubby, high-risk pregnancy, lack of funds all contribute to us staying home.  However, I have been reading like crazy this summer.  My evenings are filled with me turning pages, and some of the times Buddy is napping and I cannot sleep, I find myself escaping into someone else's world.  Currently I have traveled to late 1940's England/Guernsey Island.  What a great place to visit!

There is nothing like a good book.  Engaging characters, plot lines with a twist, interesting places.
The last couple of days I have been making my way through The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  It is not a difficult read, but I am really enjoying it.  I am almost finished, attempting not be my typical speed-reading self because I love the characters in this book.  Every single character I want to have as my own friend.  I hate to finish and bid them good-bye.  And that is the true sign of a good story - hating to say good-bye to it, yet wanting to hurry up and finish to see how it ends.

Sigh.

  1. It's true. Nothing like a great book. I have trouble stopping when I read, so I haven't read anything bookish for a long while. It sounds like so much fun though...

  2. We're right there with ya! To say we're on a tight budget is laughable! I just finished a Jane Austen book and can't wait for another!

    Happy Reading!
    Take care of yourself!
