So I'm sick. I have to say, I've had a pretty good season this year with fewer illnesses than usual but my luck has run out. I just hate being ill and it ticks me off! The only silver lining is that I'm not working tonight so that is a blessing.
My other news is that I'm almost caught up with watching Lost, and by caught up, I mean I have only two episodes left to watch. This is good and bad. Bad because I'm going to suffer serious withdrawal. But good because I'll have more time to read and catch up on blogs. Also good, because my husband was wondering if I'll perhaps do some cleaning around the house when I'm caught up. He's got a point.
Thanks everyone for your comments on my last post. I've been fairly picky with ARC's but I'm going to be even more so in the future. I want people to feel that they can trust my recommendations and not worry that I'm saying nice things because I got a free book.
So, remember that Potato Peel book that everyone was talking about last year? The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows to be exact. I decided to let all the hubbub die down before I read it and now that I have I've formed my own opinion. It's really quite a good book. It reminded me in the beginning of 84, Charing Cross Road because of the format - letters, and of the letter writer's love affair with books. I thought it was sweet and touching, but also sad and moving. The ending was perhaps a bit too sugary, but overall I enjoyed it very much and could see myself reading it again. If you know anyone who hasn't read it, I think this would make a great gift. I'm going to gift it to a few people I know next Christmas. Back when everyone was reviewing this I know a few people posted links to sites about the island of Guernsey. I've been meaning to see if I can locate some of those sites, but if you know of any I'd love to have the links.
