Over the holidays, I realized I had quite a stack of books that I haven't read yet. It could have something to do with the book exchange we now have here at work in our lunchroom. Whenever I wander in there, I scan the bookshelf for anything I haven't seen before. A few days ago, I finished "Gap Creek." An interesting book.
During my lunch time today, I started reading the book my SIL gave me at Christmas. After reading the Mom character talk about her two year old girl who was diagnosed with leukemia, I want to fly out of work and go hug each of our kids.
"I've only known her for two years. But if you took every memory, every moment, if you stretched them end to end--they'd reach forever."
My Sister's Keeper
by Jodi Picoult
Once I start reading a book, I sometimes have a difficult time putting the book down to do other things -- things like office work, or making dinner, or even sleeping. I've only read 35 pages of "My Sister's Keeper", and I'm hooked. (If you've read this book, don't tell me what happens!!)
Have you read Gap Creek? What did you think about it?
