So I stepped out of my box my introvert box, my warm and cozy anti-social box and joined a book club. So far we have read 2 books for the end of last year and we are currently on our 2nd for this year. My 1st book of the year with the club ended up in a cancelled meetup because of the weather so we are going to catch up on two books at the Feb meeting.
This month we are reading The Goldfinch.
The Goldfinch is written by Donna Tartt. A fiction, a #1 national bestseller, winner of Pulitzer Prize and from what I have been told a book that's been on a few people's must read lists!
Lucky me, as I hadn't heard of the book before. That's one perk of this book club. I'm reading books I would have never selected, generes I have never read from and authors I didn't know.
This book when I picked it up intimidated me. It's the biggest book I have ever had in my hands. 962 pages!! I didn't think that I could even read say anything about understand and follow a plot of something so long.
I walked out of the library with the audio version to possibly help me along. That has over 20 cd's so I have to pick my battles. Bound and determined to finish this book I have broke it down into sections and hope to be done by the weekend.
So far I like the book and at page 350 I think I can say that with confidence. I still know what happened in the beginning and look forward to completing this book.
After all my hard work at the completion of this reading I will be posting a review but until then.
