summer vacation via my library card
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.
