Halle, for her seventh birthday, was given six brand-new books from her Nonni and Poppi (her grandparents, Elisabeth’s folks). Each of these books was about 75-80 pages in length (for 8 to 10 year olds). She finished them in less than two hours. All of them. Two hours. Are you serious?
For my 36th (wow, I’m 36), in December, I borrowed a book from our friends Duane and Sue. It is probably 400 pages (don’t have it with me, otherwise I’d look), but I’m still not finished. However, it is good. I am a big John Grisham fan.
I grew up reading the sports page and not too many books. In fact, it wasn’t until I was a couple years into marriage I remember truly reading a book just for pleasure (all other books, though some were enjoyable, were for classes).
The Appeal, though very good, is not my favorite of the Grisham books, I look forward to reading Playing For Pizza and A Painted House, next (both Grisham novels).
I’m also going to read the next in the Bourne series (thanks mom). So, you have any suggestions for other authors I might like, given I like Ludlum and Grisham? I need suggestions if I want to keep reading at the same pace as my seven year old daughter!
Happy reading (might finish the Appeal tonight)!
