What I'm Reading Today: Bitter Sweet

It was bedtime. I looked at the two unread books on my nightstand and realized I wasn't in the mood for either of them, so I reached for my Kindle. I knew there were at least two more unread books on there, and if they didn't suit me, I could download one that did in half a minute. The battery was dead.

That almost never happens, but it's been a few weeks since I hit the bargain bins at both Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million, and I've had my head buried in those printed volumes.

My only hope for enjoyable bedtime reading was to choose an old book, preferably one with a plot I didn't entirely remember. Thinking that most of the ones on my shelves would be too fresh in my mind, I went to the spare bedroom, where the dresser drawers are filled with old paperbacks, and chose this oldie but goodie:

and reviews of this book.

It's only becoming familiar to me now that I'm 60 pages in. LaVyrle Spencer doesn't disappoint even in rereads.

  1. Spencer is one of my favorites. I have read "Morning Glory" several times.

  3. I've said before that one of the good things about getting older and losing memory is that I can enjoy books I read a long time ago and not know how they're going to turn out! ;-)

  4. Sounds like a great book, Linda... It's nice to hear that someone has time to read this time of year!!!! That is a good thing... Enjoy your book.
    Hugs,

  5. Janet, as much as I love books--and movies--the details of them usually don't stick with me a long time. Even if it's something I really, really like, all I usually remember is the fact that I really, really liked it and a vague outline of the plot.

    Betsy, reading is part of my bedtime ritual, even if I can only hold my eyes open for a page or two.
