Sometimes I feel like Lucy in the Chocolate Factory when it comes to books. I reserve books online from the public library and often, all five holds become available at the same time. The checkout period is only three weeks. Since all but one of these books are new popular titles, I won't be able to renew. So I'm once again in a race to read all of them in three weeks.
I started Change in Altitude, by Anita Shreve, first and it's a page turner! It's about a young American couple from Boston who marry and move to Kenya on a one year adventure. The book revolves around a tragic accident that occurs on a mountain climb and how that alters their lives. I'm having a hard time putting the book down to go to sleep at night!
I think I'll have to spend quite a few afternoons at home reading if I'm going to finish this entire stack by October 22! Too bad I won't be able to tuck one of them in my bag for the trip to Isla!
