I tried, but I quit!

No…this isn’t about my job (so please rewind and take back that mini-OMG you said/thought just now)Smile

Sorry for the teaser – but this post is about my book club pick.  It’s a doozy.  Long, jumpy, hard to follow, and not much of a hook to keep me reading.

The book:

The Lacuna

Sorry if you love this author and/or book.

Rarely do I quit on books, especially if it’s a book club selection – but I put in a valiant effort (I’d say about 100 pages) and I’m getting no closer to liking it and it certainly feels like, no closer to the end.

I feel a bit bad about throwing in the towel – I mean, I did pay $10 for this on my Kindle. But a quick check with a couple of my book club friends – and I found I wasn’t alone.  They had quit on it long ago. 

So time to move on!

making marriage work









No time like the present to get started on some good healthy marriage habits. Smile  We’ve both started the book – and for me, I find it really fascinating and useful.

My personal reading:

girl who played with fire 

This is the second in a trilogy. I read the first and liked it mostly. I’m willing to give the second book a go.

Since I’m not wasting spending anymore time on my book club book reading…I can do a bit of for fun reading.

Are you a Lacuna lover?  Am I missing something?  I’d love to know!

Where in the world…
