Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian book bloggers & visitors!
I played catch-up this week and posted 4 backlog reviews with 4 more left to come.
Read This Week: (2)
Teacher Man- Frank McCourt--I am always pleased to find an author I haven't read before but have heard so much about and end up enjoying. This was a terrific read! Review coming soon.
An Exaltation of Larks- James Lipton--Witty, fascinating look at collective nouns (or venery) from the well-known (pride of lions, murder of crows) to the clever (wince of dentists, a mutter of mothers-in-law). Review coming soon
Currently Reading: (4)
(Well, not really. One at the moment & 3 sitting idle)
The Stand- Stephen King--I'm hooked! After reading Under the Dome, I can see a similar style with a truckload of characters and criss-crossing of plotlines. Loving it!
The Taking of Pelham 123- John Godey
The First Wives Club- Olivia Goldsmith
My Life- Bill Clinton
