September: staying current.

I'm caught up in that cyclical thing where I start thinking I need to get a grip -- that I have way too many books in my house and that I'm never going to get them all read and it gets a little overwhelming -- almost like being caught up in a whirlpool.  After thinking about it, it seems like a good plan to try to keep up with what's coming in the door -- so this month I'm going to try to stay on top of every book that comes here in September -- either in the mail, delivered by UPS (the delivery guy absolutely hates me)  or from visits to the bookstore.  I'm starting to get a number of ARCs again, some unsolicited, so we'll see how long my good intentions  last.

First up: Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent -- I just got a pre-release copy from Hachette, not 5 minutes ago!  Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!


  1. Good luck Nancy - enjoy your self imposed challenge, while it's fun! Burial Rites does sound really good... was released here in Australia earlier this year but I haven't found the time to read it yet unfortunately.

    1. That's it, Jo -- it has to stay fun. Absolutely. I started Burial Rites last night but fell asleep early on. Not because of the book, but because I'd been up for. 3 days!

  2. Oh my! When all is said and done, I will end up with THREE Copies of Burial Rites! I preordered one eons ago, I'm reading the one from Hachette, and I just discovered that it is this month's selection for the Book Passage Signed First Editions Club! Stay tuned -- I see a giveaway here shortly!


Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
