  1. ENJOY catching up.

    How are you liking the book? I read the first short story and couldn't get into the rest of the book.

    Another book I started and didn't finish this year. :(

    ENJOY your reading week, and thanks for coming by my blog.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      I must admit that I have only heard good things about this book and the reviews and ratings have been excellent.

      Having said all that, I'm not really a short story fan, so the very first story only has a short time to engage with the reader and I guess, if that fails, then there really is no point in plowing on with the rest of the book.

      I hope that your next choice was more to your liking :)

    2. I was excited about it too after hearing so many good reviews.

      Short stories just aren't for me.

  2. I only got one book last week but I think that's a good thing. I've heard Fall of Poppies is great!

  3. Hi Mary Ann,

    I only ever tend to get single books land in my mailbox and whilst I look on with envy as others get a huge stack each week, I genuinely know that I would never be able to cope with reading them all anyway, so I am quite happy as I am :)

    I have read good things about 'Fall Of Poppies', evne though it is a book which doesn't really appeal to me, so I shall be interested to know what you thought of it when you are done reading :)

    1. I wouldn't be able to catch up with too many books, my reading time is limited.
