It's Monday, What Are You Reading? #14

Well, I didn't get to read much this past week as I was concentrating all my free time at home on the bookmark dressing project as it has the urgency of an past due commitment. Watch for pics of them in tomorrow's post (which might not go up until late night.)

So I started The Help by Kathryn Stockett as stated last week. But I only made it ten pages. I could tell within two pages that this was not the kind of story I could read in brief snatches. I need to be able to sit with it uninterrupted for a minimum of 30 minutes but 90-180 would be better. I was holding it out as a reward for getting the bookmarks in the mail but now that that's all but done, I am looking at the likelyhood of needing to spend a couple days with Jamie at her apartment as they are releasing her from the hospital this week.

Plus my date to return home has been set for Sunday so that means I need to start packing now as that always takes me a couple days and that's the most I have before Jamie will need me.

So in those spare moments in which I couldn't be working on the bookmark project I read snatches in three NF books: How to Read and Write About Fiction by Dr. William Kenny, A Voice From the Attic by Robertson Davies (on the same topic by one of the great reviewers of the mid 1900's), and Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships: Decoding Social Mysteries Trhough the Unique Perspectives of Autism by Temple Grandin and Sean Barron.

I will probably continue to dip into those three and if possible a few others off the same list as I posted last Monday--one of the twenty-some books I have out on my sister's card which I cant' get at home.

3 tell me a story:

I listened to The Help on cd and absolutely loved it! It was one of the best books on cd I've ever heard - hope you enjoy the book!

The Help is an amazing read - yes, you will want to really find a time to read and enjoy this one.

Cant wait to see the bookmarks!

I agree with Sheila -- The Help is fantastic.
