What I'm Reading
Alicia - you're my inspiration for this post; I decided to write tonight about what I'm reading. I love reading your recommendations. I just started reading The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett. I'm about eighty pages in on this epic novel of about a thousand pages, so I imagine it will take a while to complete. So far, I'm hooked. It's starting off telling the story or Tom, a skilled mason whose dream is to become a master builder on a cathedral. Since cathedrals aren't being built much nowadays, you'd be correct if you assumed that the story is set in former times, as indeed it is. I know I am going to end up crying over this novel as Tom has already lost his wife in childbirth. I'll just excuse myself now to go get the box of tissues ready . . . Then there's the sequel, World Without End, also a backbreaking thousand-pager. I will have plenty to keep me busy while I recuperate from my upcoming surgery.
Yup, I wrote it! Glue Girl at 9:33 PM
