What I read

I was busy with other things last month so I didn't get to read as much as usual. I will be better this month, I promise!

You know the 7th book is out and the author is touring?:whistling: Just mentioning it.:lol: Met her 2 years ago.

I didn't, but thanks for the info! I looked at her website and no details yet on where she's going, but I'm pretty sure it will be no where near me! lol.

i was just getting back into reading in August. I started to read Angels & Demons, but stopped about halfway through (conclave part). I think the main thing that drove me away from the book was Brown's frequent low-blows to the church and religion. i'm not religious but am spiritual and have no grudges against the church. this was probably just a bad book choice for me, given the plot. a frient lent it to me, so it was a free read.
