Well, I finished up two books this week. I finished reading my book group's book, Love in the Present Tense, and have to say after a shaky start (wasn't sure I was going to like it), I found it to be quite good and poignant. It was a good read about forever love and parents/children although I sometimes had to check back to chapter headings to see in whose character (and age) it was written. Catherine Ryan Hyde jumped the characters of Mitch, Leonard, and Pearl around timewise and it was a bit confusing at times. I don't think I have ADHD so I will not claim user error; I think it was just the way it was written, but I'd still recommend the story.
I also finished up reading Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann B. Ross. At first, I wasn't sure I really liked the novel, but then it grew on me until I began rooting for Miss Julia and Little Lloyd to succeed and win against long odds. Happily enough, they did and it was enjoyable enough that I'm considering getting the next book in the series to read.
Of course, before that happens I still have a few more novels in my "stash" (to use one of my son's words) to read before I head back to the library. I've got Phoenix: Firestorm and Landscape with Fragmented Figments on my pile, and I have just started reading Warren Adler's Mourning Glory.
Actually, I should be getting calls from the library for several books I put holds on. I am fortunate enough to be connected to a library that is part of ClevNET. ClevNET is basically all the libraries in the northeastern part of Ohio (Cleveland suburbs and on west). So even if my library doesn't cary a book I want to read, I can order a hold on it and it will be sent to my local branch. I had the same thing when I lived in the Dayton area. All of the Montgomery County libraries were linked, but this is a much bigger network of libraries. Lots to read...gee, I love summer!
