Books on Friday

Last week I wrote about not adding to my book shelves. Then I heard Colson Whitehead on Fresh Air. As luck would have it, I had a coupon and was able to pick up a copy to read on the plane. Not an easy story but a very good book and best of all, it broke my reading slump. I have picked up Pachinko, a book I started and then set aside too long ago. I know it has had mixed reviews but I have been promising a book buddy that I would read it long enough. And I believe the author is coming to town this fall.

I also stumbled across another site with many new to me book reviews. I have already marked 3 titles on my library For Later shelf.

We are having a much milder than normal summer so reading on the deck has become a daily thing. Two weeks until I return to work. Plenty of time to make a dent in my TBR pile.

Happy Friday!

  1. I am on the wait list for that book! Your review makes me think I need to go pick it up, rather than wait!

    Have a good weekend!

  2. I’m looking forward to reading the new Colson Whitehead. Enjoy your reading time on the deck, that’s one of my favorite places to read!

  3. I enjoyed Pachinko. I realized I knew very little about Korea or the Korean culture after reading it.
    Enjoy the rest of your summer break.

  4. Enjoy every minute of your reading/deck time! 🙂 (I, too, am on the library hold list for Nickel Boys and look forward to reading it.)

  5. I just picked up Pachinko this weekend at the Barn Sale I went to – 50 cents! It is a long book!! Redaing on the deck just sounds so lovely – enjoy.

  6. Thank you for sharing – the book and the website – especially intrigued by the 11 Books every White Christian should read!
