I have about 100 actual books on my bookshelf that I haven’t read. Do I still want to read them with all the new books being published and its challenging enough to keep up with them. Besides if I move some on, then I have an empty space on my bookshelf and it awaits something new.
I didn’t do that well, however taking five out and looking again at them, at least puts them in my thoughts and the likelihood of picking them up reasonably soon to read. By read I mean I’ll give them the first twenty five page test to see if I want to continue.
I like Jill Mansell but this one just feels old in terms of condition and I don’t think I’d enjoy reading it for that reason. So out it goes. I got it at a book fair so no loss. I have enjoyed some of Jill Mansell’s books before.
How Hard Can it Be? is a Maybe, so back on the shelf. It’s about a fifty year old finding herself. It may have a rom comedy aspect, not sure and if I don’t like it after twenty or so pages I’ll send it on. I’ve never read Allison Pearson. I picked this one up cheap at the bookshop.
I like the blurb on the back of Dune Road, its set in Connecticut and is about someone with new lease of life after divorce. I will certainly give this one a good go. I did get it at the book fair, but still in reasonably good condition. I have liked some of Jane Green’s books previously.
It’s the Little Things about three people who survive the Boxing Day tsunami and the years that follow. Another book fair buy. I will give this one a read as well. I don’t think I have read an Erica James book before, not sure.
This is one I picked up at the bookshop, has a $34.99 price tag! Why did I buy it? No idea! It’s about a woman who has lost her son in an avalanche. I’ll try this one too, the money outlay is enough to persuade me, but the story itself sounds readable. I haven’t read this author before.
