Book



I like to read.  I always have.  I am not of the opinion that reading is for bedtime, something to put you to sleep.  I never, ever feel guilty that I spend a certain amount of time reading during the day instead of doing something productive.  I have always felt that reading is a worthwhile activity in its own right.

At the same time, I like to thinkthat I keep a pretty good balance in my life.  I enjoy a lot of different things and I like to feel I make time to see people and do a variety things that I enjoy.  Once in a while, though, I get really into something.

 I could not put this book down.  Unlike at least one reviewer, I did not feel the rug pulled out from under me.  I thought the plot was predictable, but at the same time I was completely sucked in.  "Oh! I knew it!!"  If you like a mystery/thriller, this book does it.

  2. See, I'm one of those who feels guilty when I just sit and read. Which is ridiculous. I love to read...but it doesn't add much to my bank account, unfortunately. I do read when I go to bed, just because that's the only time I don't have something else I should be doing (I know, I know—I have a problem!), but then I'm always so tired I fall asleep after just a few pages. Needless to say, I've not been getting through many books lately.

    I will, though, have to look for this one. Sounds intriguing...and like one I should read just smack dab in the middle of the day!

  3. I read mostly before bed, but also take my Kindle and read while waiting for my husband while running errands, while waiting for the doctor, and sometimes while cooking.

  4. When my book club was searching for our next read, this book was mentioned. I am number 400 something on the library reserve list. One thing I have loved about retiring is time to read.

  5. Read it a cpl of weeks ago on the advice of a friend -- I bought it on my kindle b/c, like Mary, I found there were 300-some people ahead of me on the library list. Anyway, agree it's a spellbinder!

  6. I love book recommendations. I'll have to check this one out. I have never, ever, ever felt guilty about reading -- says the former English teacher!!

  7. I can't imagine how it would be not to love to read. I have to alternate the books with the magazines, and never have enough time.

  8. Guess I'm in the I feel guilt when I sit and read group. But I love books so I listen to them while I cook, clean, drive or do yardwork. I "read" a couple of books a month this way. Love the recommendation, I'll look for it.

  9. Someone else recommend this book too and I tried to find it while at Barnes and Noble the other day but with no luck. I will try to download it maybe tonight on my nook.
    I too love love to read but save it for night time but don't know why it is nothing wrong with sitting down and enjoying yourself anytime
    Love

  10. I too love to read... anytime day or night (and don't ever feel guilty?). Am in the middle of 3 books at the moment. Which one I pick up depends on my mood.. and I'm a very eclectic reader. But I DO love mysteries!

  11. I'm going to have to check and see if they have it for the Kindle and put it on the wishlist! Thanks!

  12. I liked this one, too, although it's not the Great American Novel or anything. Flynn does have an original take on thing. I've read her others, too.

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
