Books Galore!

Guess what? Josh and I went to the library yesterday and I got THREE new books! Yay for me.

I'm currently reading The Uglies series (on book 2 of 4 - and I got the last 2 books at the library). I also got some fantasy book, which is probably a good choice b/c I'm not sure any of you SKANK bookclubbers would be too interested in fantasy (except HP fans like Stace and Katie, maybe ;) ).

Anyway. They did NOT have the third book in Millennium series, so I have yet to start that - so that's good news, right?

Stace - still on page 10?
Kristen - page 20?
Nicole - did you finish?
Katie - did you start reading yet?

Start Your Engines

As Amy said in the last blog post, our book club's third book has been selected (The Girl Who Played with Fire), but we never assigned a meeting date.

Well, start your engines, because we (sorta) assigned a to-be-read date. We also assigned the fourth book. Yea. Go figure.

Our goal is to have The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest both read for a joint discussion meeting in December.

We think asking to have our third book (second in the Millenium series) read by October-ish will give those of us complaining about how difficult it is to read when the weather is beautiful (ahem, Staci) time to finish. We also might try to meet virtually in the fall to discuss. We will see.

I haven't started the book. Nikkie is 400 pages in.

My excuse: I have three books I am currently in the middle of: Eat, Pray, Love; A Time to Kill; and Atonement. (Yes. I realize the irony of those titles.) I should probably remove the bookmark from at least one of them because I haven't picked up any of them in probably a month. My other excuse: every time I go out into the sunshine to read, my eyelids automatically close and I don't resist the urge.

Questions:
Is it easier or harder to read in the summertime?
Do you prefer to read when it's rainy or sunny?
What do you do when you are in the middle of a book, but haven't read it for awhile?
Do you think I should stop reading all three books and start reading the book club books?
