I've been lost...

I am so very sorry I have been away for a few days. 

Okay, really it has been a week but I have been lost...in Kate Morton's Distant Hours.
 It rarely takes me this long to get through a book but, with a very busy few weeks coupled with a 700 page book, it took me some time. 
But, honestly, I also savored it. I didn't want it to end. 
I re-read passages. I put post it notes on my favorite parts. I sighed a lot. 
It is coffee stained and beaten up because I took it with me everywhere. 

Sigh.

But now it's over.

And now I have to put into words exactly how I felt about it.

Oh boy.

This is going to be tough.

I simply loved it.

love, love, loved it.

I hope I can do it justice.

More to come.


Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

O I just love when that happens. I love when something moves me so much that I can't imagine doing it justice. Bravo!

I got a good start in The Forgotten Garden which I was supposed to read for book club. I didn't get it finished yet but was really enjoying it and can't wait to get back to it. Good to know that when I finish it, I can pick up this one to enjoy Morton's writing some more.

700 pages! YOWZA! I just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo at 590 and I thought that was big.

I posted yesterday about a Minnesota and Wisconsin book blogger meet up in October. Stop by and check it out and see if it may be a fit for you. :)
