What I'm reading Wednesday...

I finished Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan last Wednesday evening after posting it that morning.  I actually locked up the office after work and curled up in a chair in the back room to read for an hour before starting the hour commute home.  Once on the road, I let my Kindle read aloud to me.  Then when I got home I finished reading the last couple of chapters.

It wasn't until after I finished the book that I logged on to the blog, and when I did, I found a very nice surprise in the post comments.  The author left a comment.  So since I couldn't find a way to leave a message via your blog, I am hoping that you, Kate Kerrigan, come across this post as you did the last one.  I want you to know that I enjoyed the story and characters very much and look forward to the second book being available here in the States.

And thank you for leaving your comment.  It was a fun surprise.




This week I'm reading Snow Mountain Passage by James D. Houston.  A novel based on the Donner Party.

And yes, that is a lame attempt at a snow-like background in the photo...it's late...it's quilt batting...and I'm a dork.  No disrespect intended to the actual members of the Donner Party, their struggles through the tragic events that befell them, or their descendants.

  1. It's so nice when the author leaves a comment, isn't it? Happened to me a couple of years ago as well, and it made me like the book even more!

  2. That must have made you feel so special. I am reading a book by Josh Ritter. I would sure like a comment from him.
