Spring Break Book Stockpiling - SOLC #5
But I apparently am never too busy to start planning what I will be reading during spring break. I have purchased some books from our local independent bookstore, I have pressed the Amazon Prime button several times for 2 day delivery, I have perused our local public library, and I have begun the process of stockpiling my Kindle library.
How exciting to know that three books I have been dying to read were delivered to me today -- two on my front doorstep and one on my Kindle. I can't wait to dive into Requiem, The Runaway King, and The Center of Everything (March 5 was certainly a banner day in the world of children's book publishing)!!!
I am also very excited to read the books for both of my book clubs -- one group is reading Joy for Beginners, and the other group will be reading The Persian Pickle Club. Both appear to have wonderful characters that I can savor and get to know while lazing around at the beach.
Then, I had to pick up a Mary Kay Andrews book while at the library. She is such a fun chick lit author. Savannah Breeze should be a fun romp for enjoyment. And my addiction to the Scot Horvath series by Brad Thor continues... I want to try to read the rest of the series to fill in my gaps. My fascination with spy books is amusing. (Maybe this is derived from my desire to be Nancy Drew when I was younger???)
So the book gathering has begun. Some people plan their outfits for vacation, some plan the excursions they will take, and yet others plan their shopping adventures. Me??? Well, I plan the reading that I want to accomplish in a week. Those of you who know me are shocked, I know. :)
Thanks to Ruth and Stacey for hosting us again for the Slice of Life Challenge. Head on over there to find out what other "slicers" have to say each and every day.
