It actually takes me a while to finish a book. My mind tends to wander if I don't read slowly and then I have to go back and read the paragraph again (remind you of any kids that you know! :) So every book that I finish on my summer reading list feels like a big accomplishment.
I just finished:
I really liked it. Something different, definitely not a fast-paced story. A retired man gets a letter from an old friend that she's dying from cancer and gets it in his head that if he walks the hundreds of miles to go see her, it will give her hope to hold on. The real story takes place in his head and with the people he meets-his problems with his marriage, his son. I read the comments on Amazon and saw there were some people who thought it was boring, and I can see that, however I think a story can have a quiet effect as well. The message is more subtle, but definitely there.
Now I'm reading:
Not usually a YA fan, but so far I really like it.
Anyone reading anything for fun that they really like?
