What are you doing this weekend Tammy? Duh!!
I won‘t finish another book before midnight tomorrow, so here are my Goodreads stats for 2017. The Reluctant Trophy Wife was a DNF - it was horrible. The Handmaid‘s Tale was a reread, and a welcome one. The tagged book, my longest, was amazingly appropriate to our current situation, and as well written as all Trollope‘s work.
I went to the local independent book shop at the mall that sells used books. What rock have I been sleeping under? They were selling books that were in "ok" condition for $8.00. I could understand paying that price for one that is in "new", "like new", "very good" and "good" condition. But not for "ok". I am glad that there are library book sales and GW's that sell at a more realistic price.
This book would be a door stopper, except I read it in my Kindle. Trollope explores a world where money (or the appearance of money) trumps morals, manners, intelligence and just about any virtue. Amazingly relevant to today's political scene, except in the end the "villain" gets his due.
Every year, I set myself three longreads so I commit to getting some of the huuuge books read. These are 2017's picks.
