As much as I love getting those nice, free books to review, I've discovered that sometimes I may have bitten off more than I can chew. For example:
from the Amazon Vine Program I have the following books to read and review:
The Walking People, by Mary Beth Keane
Tall Man: The Death of Doomadgee, by Chloe Hooper
The Doomsday Key, by James Rollins
Past Imperfect, by Julian Fellowes
then, from BookBrowse.com's first impressions, there's
The Book of God and Physics: A Novel of the Voynich Mystery , by Enrique Joven
So now we're up to 5. This is normally not a problem when I can pretty much read a book every other day, but for some reason it's different this time. Example: my book group meets on Tuesday (I'm the facilitator), and we're reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith and of course, I wait until the last possible second to read it. So that's my current reading until Tuesday. Then there are all of the fun books that I've recently bought that I can't wait to get my hands on:
Cemetery Dance, the newest Agent Pendergast novel by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
Bleeding Heart Square, by Andrew Tayor
The Secret Speech, by Tom Rob Smith
Darling Jim, by Christian Moerk
then of course, I stuck my hat in the ring at LibraryThing's early reviewer's program for a book I don't even remember the name of right now. How dumb am I?????
and last but not least at all, for June I was planning on reading books about the reign of Henry VIII, a sort of tribute to Showtime's wonderful show, The Tudors, which I have not missed an episode of since season I, airing its last episode this week -- and they're all here now looking at me as well.
yeah, yeah...I know. Why on earth did I ask for all of these books? I sometimes mystify myself, but this has been an eye-opener and hopefully I've learned something here today. (probably not, but I'd like to think so -- I never do).
truly...so many books so little time....
