Now Playing: still quiet!
I don't remember what I was watching the other day but there was a commercial for a movie that will run on the Lifetime Channel (did I mention I do not have cable, direct tv or satellite?) - called the "Tenth Circle" based on the novel by Jodi Picoult. Yes, I'd seen her books but haven't bought any. The trailer for the movie looked good & so I thought, well I can't see the movie but I can read the book. I hit the local bookstore last Friday but that particular book was on order - obviously very popular. So I ended up with another Picoult book - "The Pact." I'm about 5 chapters into it right now & have realized why she's such a popular author.
Then a genealogy blogger - Jasia - has two blogs: one for her genealogy & one for her digital scrapbook including genealogy. She'd posted some stuff about the "Plum" books by Janet Evanovich. So while I was at the bookstore I picked up the first one - "One For the Money". As Jasia had mentioned - it's a pretty fast read & enjoyable. Luckily she's written 13 more in the "numbers" series and a few Plum books "in-between" the numbers. Think I know what I'll be reading this summer. I also found some lists off the web on genealogy fiction. Think I'll first see if the library has any of those. Speaking of which - current books/CDs are due tomorrow but I doubt I'll be checking anything out since I'll be busy for the next few weeks & I have the Picoult book to read. (If you want to see the Digital Scrapbook page Jasia made in honor of the Plum novels, give me a holler & I'll link you up. Or go to my genealogy blog (link on left), find the "Genealogy Blogs" on the right hand side & click on "Creative Gene". That's Jasia's genealogy blog - go to the right side & click "Creative Genealogy" - that's her scrapbook page.)
What's on your summer reading list?
