Wow...second day back to work after vacation and I just can't seem to get back in the swing of things. I really need to start playing the lottery more cause work is seriously cramping my reading time. Which reminds me of my favorite Twilight Zone episode, "Time Enough at Last." It's about a man named Henry Bemis who works in a bank but all he really wants to do is read. On his lunch break one day, he sneaks into the vault so he can read in peace for awhile. Upon leaving he discovers the world has been pretty much destroyed by a bomb. He wanders for awhile until he stumbles upon the remains of a library. Joy!! He spends a crazy amount of time sorting and salvaging the books and is just thrilled because he finally has "time enough at last" to read all the books his heart desires. And then the unthinkable happens...as he's about to sit down and start reading, his glasses fall and shatter leaving him unable to see.
Gets me every time I think about it.
Anyway, hoping to finish up The Summoning tonight (I am really loving this book) and trying to figure put what to read next...Madapple (which came today!) or Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver...
From Amazon's website....
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?
Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last.
Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
Both sound like they will be amazing!
Oh, and this came today as well....
The art work is GORGEOUS plus I am a HUGE fan of graphic novels so I'm really looking forward to reading this one!
