Currently reading

Does anyone else ever get to that point in reading, where you just want to finish the book you’re reading because you found another really interesting read, and can’t wait? Add to that, really enjoying the book you are reading right now, and want to take your time reading, to fully enjoy it?

This is my “inbetween a rock and hard place”. All three books are wonderfully written, full of life, and characters that I wish I could meet in real life. But in the wings I have so many other books crying out for my attention. What’s a girl to do? I don’t want to rush through my books, but my mind keeps drifting back to those unread books.

I’m in the midst of reading 3 books, all taking much longer than I had thought they would. I have no books to review probably for another week. But I’m really enjoying my books, if that helps.

I’m reading Sense and Sensability, I Houdini (a biography) and City of Falling Angels.

Of the three books, I Houdini is one that I enjoy the best. Just saying the name Houdini brings up so many images of magic and straight-jackets, escape tricks and a world where magicians and their traveling groups were the most talked about and most popular show on the road.

City of Falling Angels is the next runner up, only because John Brenedt is one of the most talented writers I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I think if I were ever put in a situation where I met him, I would freeze up for fear of saying something idiotic.
