I believe this will be my last Alaskan Library Loot for this year. I actually went to the library on Tuesday and still haven't picked up one of these books to read yet. I've been too absorbed in the internet and finally catching up on my travel emails (7 months worth). I have to be in the mood to read them for some reason and then I binge. So I haven't stopped reading, I just reading a different format.
I can't decide if I want to read An Echo in the Bone here and try to finish it before next Saturday or wait, buy the book for my collection and read it leisurely in Portland. Actually, I decided right now. I'm going to wait. I don't want to rush through book or take the chance that I won't be done with it before I leave. In fact, I may buy it in Fairbanks and take on vacation with me. Yeah, that's what I'm going to do. I was slightly worried about only having 3 books with me on vacation anyways. With my reading streak that I'm on right now, I didn't want to get stuck and have to read on my phone. The beach and phone don't go together.
This week's haul:
- An Echo in the Bone - Diana Gabaldon
- Angel Falls - Kristin Hannah
- Olive Kitteridge - Elizabeth Strout
- The Castaways - Elin Hilderbrand
- Summer Island - Kristin Hannah
I've been on a real Hannah and Hilderbrand kick lately. Emotion and summer. I'm noticing a trend. 11 days and I'll be in summer for 2 weeks. Woohoo.
Did anyone else notice the YA tags on 2 of the books? They are not YA books. I have no idea why they are mislabeled. I asked the library volunteer. She tried to explain that those authors write YA too. Uhhhhh, no. I'll ask the librarian when I return them.
How's your reading life since the Readathon?
