Lost in a Good Book!

Have you ever picked up a book by an author you have never read? A couple of days ago Brent and I went to the library. Brent is very organized when it comes to checking books out at the Library. First he request a book, when it comes in he goes to the library, he then checks the shelves for any other books by the author he is currently reading, he then checks out his books. Why the boy never joined the military I'm not sure.

As previously discussed I am more the grab and go girl. I walk down the aisle going, "Hum this looks interesting, this looks interesting, huh that is a clever title." Before long my arms are loaded and I am ready to go. 

So far I have started two of the library books that I picked up. The first one I am on page 10. All I know for certain is that some old guy was killed in a church. Besides that I haven't been able to follow the story. I find that the author must have amazing skills if I am lost by page 3. 

What, who, wait a minute, is that a guy character or a girl character? Are they talking to themselves? Are they talking out loud is that happening today, yesterday or early tomorrow. I'm rather impressed that I am so confused. I keep reading the jacket (which by the way, I never do, I think jackets give away to many clues) trying to figure out what detail I missed. I think there is a very good possibility that the jacket is on the wrong book.

I'm deciding if I am going to keep reading the silly thing or take it back to library ASAP.

The second book I started reading is, "The Edge of Winter," by Luanne Rice. I haven't read any of her books before but I have seen her name a lot. All I have to say about this book is I loved it. Yes, loved! As in it was so good that I picked it up at 7:30 this morning and did not put it down until I finished 400 hundred and something pages.

Why is it impossible to put down a good book? What exactly do we think is going to happen once we put the book down? Are all the characters going to run away? Is the story going to re write itself and be less appealing?

Meanwhile, the laundry is yelling at me, "Hey you! Yah you! If you don't do the laundry TODAY! Everyone is going to be wearing day old underwear tomorrow."

I keep on telling it to sush I'm reading. Laundry can be real loud when it wants attention.

In fact after sitting down to write this post it has actually started screaming. GEE! I guess I should go pay attention it is so demanding.
