Phew!

My RL book club has been working on Three Cups of Tea and I had the hardest time with it! I didn't get more than about 120 pages into it, and last night was our discussion (which I attended even though I didn't finish the book because, hey, it was an opportunity to get out of the house and have some adult discussion!). Anyhow, I can now in good conscience toss the book aside and delve into something I really want to read! I've already read my RL book club's next 3 upcoming selections, so I have a few months now to read what I want to read!

:woohoo: for being able to read what you like. Sorry you couldn't get through the RL selection. I always hate when I can't finish a book.

If you haven't read it yet, I highly suggest The Other Boleyn Girl, it was such a great read!

You know, Kelly, I keep hearing how great it is, and even my MIL (now deceased) raved about it when she read it a couple-three years ago. But I picked it up in the book store just to look at it, and I really don't think it's my kind of book :confused:

I don't think it's one I would have picked up on my own, but it sucked me in pretty quickly. There were so many dynamics in the story that really made it quite the page turner. I'm reading The Boleyn Inheritance now, and it hasn't grabbed me like TOBG

I am still working on the 13th tale, but now it is because I have been so busy with kids and had no time. I have finally gotten into it though.

I think 120 pages and not into a book qualifies for throwing it out!!! For sure! Wink
