Stacking the Shelves (466)

This feels all too much like one of those weeks where I might have forgotten to put the text into this post and left the “XXX” – but I managed to avert that fate! For some reason, this has felt like a particularly long week at Chez Reading Reality. But we made it! It’s the weekend! YAY!

I also managed to get some interesting and/or much anticipated books this week, and that’s always a win. I’m especially happy that State of Terror finally popped up on Edelweiss – just as the book came out. I love Louise Penny so I’m very curious to see how her collaboration with Hillary Clinton works out.

    1. Admittedly, I get ebooks and eARCs so my shelves don’t actually topple, otherwise the first floor would have crashed into the basement long ago.
      A real tip, though, if you’re not acquainted with Nancy Pearl’s 50-page rule, it’s definitely your friend. You only have to read 50 pages of any book. If it’s not grabbing you after 50, it’s not gonna and you can be done. If you are over 50 years old subtract one page for every year over 50. When you get to be 100 you CAN judge a book by its cover. Life’s just too short to read books that aren’t working for you.
      In the end, I read to completion about half of what I get. That end may or may not be several years after date of publication.
      Hope that helps!
