Great Book

I know a book is good when I catch myself beginning to pray for one of the characters. Talk about being absorbed into the novel!

I'm reading Sepulchre by Kate Mosse, and boy, is it riveting. It's a french, gothic tale that flip-flops between present and past and interweaves both sets of the characters' lives together.

Actually, I'm listening to it on CD, so I'm constantly thinking up places to drive to so I can listen to it. Yes, I could listen at home, but there are people there who like to interrupt at crucial moments. And rather than take the chance of me blowing a head gasket, I'd rather drive somewhere. I could take the trash and recycling off...and this would be a good time to buy school supplies!

I love that the characters in this book seem so real to you that you would pray for them. I can't think of a better compliment to a writer!

Oh, there's nothing like an absorbing book. Argh! Is it time to buy school supplies? Say it ain't so!

Haha! That's funny. I have plenty of errands you can do for me if you need somewhere to go!
