Reading’s been a bit slower than usual lately. I went through a bit of time where I just seemed to run out of time and didn’t get any reading done. I have been trying to carve out some time every day now to read, but I really am not a very fast reader, so it has been slow going. And, of course, all I have been choosing are big fat books! So, I have nothing finished this week to review. Good thing I’m a few books ahead on my year’s challenge, huh?
I do plan on finishing “The Lies of Locke Lamora” for next week’s post. So far, it’s been a fun and interesting read.
Meanwhile, here, have a picture of a dog enjoying a bit of a break on a Sunday walk:
His review of the walk: Best. Walk. Ever. (But he says that about all of them!)
