I may have found the book to bring me out of my reading funk. Granted, I've had more free time now for a couple weeks so it may be that adjustment finally catching up, but I finally read a book from beginning to end in a normal amount of time that I really enjoyed and that is inspiring me to reach out and find other great books again! That book is The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers which I picked up after Nomadreader's great review (which was Wednesday and I started Thursday and finished Saturday morning... see, a normal amount of time for me like I said, LOL). I see why this book has gained so much attention in the literary world. My review will be up sometime in the near future, I suppose, but I highly recommend it! My other "active" read right now is Stephen King's On Writing which I'm about halfway through but am still unsure about.
In other news, my husband and I put up most of our Christmas lights on the house yesterday. The intention is to not turn them on until after Thanksgiving but put them up since we'll be busy after Thursday; however, there are some other houses in my area who have already turned theirs on so we shall see, LOL. Regardless, I still have more decorations and lights to put up that I'm super excited about!! Other than that I'm just excited about getting these next few days out of the way since I am giving myself a four day weekend! Woo hoo!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
