A Housewife's Library

I bought a couple of new books this week. Don't you just love getting new books? I do. It's like Christmas! A new book is like holding a mini adventure in your hand. You can go places and see things that you'd never be able to IRL (that means "In Real Life" for all you computer illiterate peeps out there).

Books are especially exciting for us stay-at-home moms, since going to the friggin grocery store is about as much excitement as we get. I picked out books that I know I will like, since I'm not really into "story gambling" right now. I don't have time to read a shitty book. It has to be good.

The first book I bought is called Dry Ice By Stephen White. I love Stephen White books. He writes a series about a Shrink living in Boulder, Colorado. It's good writing and has good characters. I highly recommend this author, and there are a lot of books by him to choose from. I've read them all.

I also got The Road by Cormac McCarthy. This is one of those books that I just had to read. It needs to be in my library. I've heard many different things about the book from people who have already read it, and I cant wait to have my own opinion.

And last but not least, I bought The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. This one looks fun. Fun like.... Eat Pray Love fun. Like girl talk fun. Like eating a piece of chocolate cake fun. Like taking a bath with a glass of wine fun. Like sleeping in fun.....I could go on forever here but you get the point.

Maybe I'll start my own book review. Or maybe I'll start a bloggy blog book club. Say that three times fast.

I need to pick those up. I'm with you, I can't waste time on a dumb book. Let us know what you think after you read!

OMG!!! We have to have a Road book discussion when you are done. I finished it in a day, could not put it down. I have to honestly say though that I don't know if I enjoyed it but I still think about the characters. I'd say it's haunting and one I have a hard time recommending to people. Check for great insight on the book, characters, reading questions and author interviews. Did you know he also wrote No Country for Old Men? I've got Friday Night Knitting Club and Eat Pray Love on my list of must reads.
