I found out this week that I won Lisa Unger's book contest. How exciting is that? It means I will be receiving signed, first editions of each of her three books. What an outstanding prize!
Finally got Shutter Island (Dennis Lehane) started. It was supposed to be the book I read in May that I "already own". For those of you reading this who are not familiar with my 2008 book goals, I have two. One is to read 150 books in 2008, and the other is to read at least one book I owned prior to January 2008 every month this year. I'm behind on the 150 books, but I'm not disappointed on that front. I've been on a roll with absolutely high-quality books lately, and I'll take that over quantity ANY day. And I was doing good on the "already own" goal until May. I didn't get Shutter Island in for May. So, it was bumped to June. If I can fit Atonement in also this month, I'll do so; otherwise, it will be moved to July. I'll update when I finish Atonement. The planned schedule after Atonement had been Water for Elephants, I Know This Much is True, The Thirteenth Tale and The Black Ice - see why I need to read some of the books I already own?? I may move a Karin Slaughter or Alafair Burke book up on the list because they both have new books coming out later this summer, but we'll see.
For now, it is a beautiful evening here in Northeast Ohio, so I'm going to take Shutter Island out to my front porch swing and enjoy both my book and the weather. Happy Reading!
