I hope you all are having a great Sunday. My husband and I were out late last night for my best friend’s birthday, so we slept in late this morning and have been taking it easy ever since. The best kind of Sunday is a lazy one!
I have been woefully slow with my reading lately. I suppose you could say I am in a reading funk. I read only one book this entire week–The Color Purple, by Alice Walker. There is a read-a-long going on for this book, so I went ahead and read it since I already owned it and had been meaning to read it anyway. Other than that, I have read one chapter out of A Short History of Women, by Kate Walbert, and I have decided to forgoe this one indefinitely. It is for my bookclub this coming Wednesday, but it appears that every single one of my fellow book club members hated it, so I decided to skip it. I rarely ever do that, at least without giving the book a fighting chance, but I am just not in the mood for this particular book right now, and the fact that none of my friends liked it makes me leery.
So instead of reading A Short History of Women today, I am going to start Red Hook Road, by Ayelet Waldeman. I think it sounds like just the type of story that will catch my attention and get me out of my funk. I hope the rest of you get some reading in today too!
