"Hello, it's me..."

Wow, I posted back in March...and disappeared again. Sometimes things don't work out the way we plan. I'm sure we all know this. I'll leave it at that.

From my last post, I'd like to say I still follow Bookaholics on Facebook, and I always enjoy the questions, comments, and comradery of the people that belong there. It's really nice to have a place to go on social media that is actually monitored closely, where you are only allowed conversations about books and reading. You know, it's a place where you don't have to hear what anyone thinks about everything else that's going on in the world. Thank goodness for safe harbors on social media! 

As for books I'm currently reading Jo Nesbo's The Redeemer. I really enjoy his serial killers (which, yes, I know sounds more than a bit off). And, just so you know, reading about a detective who hunts down killers is not usually my cup of tea. Nesbo is my only exception. There's just something about his style of writing that I like. I love that the protagonist, Harry, is very flawed personally, but so smart and confident when it comes to his job. I also like that people underestimate him, and he doesn't feel the need to show off to prove they're wrong, he just does his job...and does it well. My kind of guy!

Speaking of my kind of guys, I would like to give a shout out about Matthew McConaughey's book, Greenlights. I was going to read it, but was told it is quite enjoyable on Audible. Listening to Matthew is quite entertaining, so I took him on a road trip to Georgia with me for the week of Fourth of July. When you're traveling on I-20, it's pretty much a straight away. It's easier for me to focus on listening with few obstacles and distractions in my way. I enjoyed every minute of his storytelling. He is a delightful traveling companion! Try a sample for yourself on Audible and you'll see what I mean.

In other news, school is starting back up here in Texas. I'm excited for the school year to begin, and I can't wait to welcome back our students next week! I'm currently reading a couple of "classics" some teachers found in old lockers. I'll let you know if they were worth blowing the dust off of for a read. :)

Happy reading!!
