Back from vacation
I am back in Toronto after a wonderfully relaxing week in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic with my sister. We spent the majority of our time on the beach reading. It was fantastic.
One thing that I thought was pretty neat at our resort, was that there was a self-serve library thingy. There were basically a few shelves on the side of the kid's centre where you could pick up a book that someone else had left behind-and if you're so inclined, to also leave a book as well! It was neat to see popular books not only in English, but French and German as well. Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Angel's Game was even there!!
I read my way through two books (Shutter Island: so-so, good ending, might be too scared to see the movie still, and The Cure For Death by Lightning: not great). I left TCFDBL on the shelf and brought back Innocence by Kathlene Tessaro-total chick lit, exactly what I was in the mood for.
Does anybody have any book recommendations for me??
