Book Show & Tell

Alrighty, so here is an upcoming book club choice. This is just a completely INSANE choice. It is not a quick and easy read.

I have no idea, who at the Los Angeles Times reviewed this but they quote this book as "a page-turner ... that pays the reader back and richly." In what? Papercuts? The book is 1400 pages long. I repeat ... 1400 pages.

And JennyJ, who admitted to me that she was hoping to find a large book to tackle this winter ... keep notes for me. Ok?

Worst case, I can use it as a step stool. You can get an idea of it's depth in the next picture.

So here we are. Looking at a picture of $14 worth of books from the local Library booksale. There was an odd group of people in front of us waiting to enter the pre-sale sale. They came with scarves and empty boxes and rushed to the Art and other Novelty Books section when the doors opened. It is as weird as it sounds. I was glad they didn't run to the fiction first, otherwise I'd of had to resort to elbowing and screeching. (I love me some fiction)
In random order, my booklist.
The Richest Season - MaryAnn McFadden
Getting Over It - Anna Maxted
The Pretender - Celeste Bradley
The Bad Luck Wedding Night - Geralyn Dawson
Pretty Woman - Fern Michaels
The Pilot's Wife - Anita Shreve
Wicked - Shannon Drake
Little Altars Everywhere - Rebecca Wells
Leading with My Chin - Jay Leno
Everything And A Kite - Ray Romano
Fatherhood - Bill Cosby
The Summer I Dared - Barbara Delinsky
An Accidental Woman - Barbara Delinsky
Last Call - James Grippando
Out of My Mind - Andy Rooney
A Touch of Panic - L.R. Wright
Double Take - Catherine Coulter
I also got three John Grisham 1st Edition books but they are going to my MIL's because she is collecting them. (I'm not a big fan of law books, kinda ironic eh?)
Let me know if you've read any of these or if you want more information.

I haven't read any of those. I get a lot of my books at the Goodwill. They have a great selection.
