I’ve joined the Big Book Summer Challenge over on Book by Book. I just finished Uprooted by Naomi Novik (431 pages), and I’ll have a Lit Bit review up soon. I’m trying to decide if I should read Ahab’s Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund (666 pages), or Brandywine by Jack Rowe (394 pages.) I know the latter is a little short, but I need it for WroteTrips. I also need Ahab’s Wife for a presentation, so I’ll have to see how it goes.
I need to read Cop Town by Karin Slaughter for a July book group, and it’s 453 pages, but it’s a paperback.
Right now, I’m well into The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl, at 383 pages. I felt like reading a mystery, and like novels about books, so I thought that I’d give it a try.
For better or worse, I read really fast, and I read a lot. My local library started their reading challenge at the beginning of June, and I’ve already won all of the individual prizes. I’ve even won the first giveaway. Maybe I’ll go to one of the other county libraries and sign up there so that I can win more prizes.
