Oh...yes...my obsession with books and how I have bought a few new ones that look so good...and preordered one or two that just look so good...and how I am still reading Bittersweet...but...what I have realized is this...I love a book that takes a good long while to read. Bittersweet has tons of complicated characters, a complicated plot, a secret...probably lots of secrets...and scenes from a lake in Vermont that are so much fun to visualize. Imagine this...your family has so much money that one of your ancestors literally bought tons of this lake property. Tons of little houses were built...each with it's own sweet name and personality. There is a big house and then all of these sweet little cottages...basic but still fun to live in. It almost seems as though there are enough of these houses...scattered throughout the woods...for siblings and other heirs to have one. There is a Dining Hall...with a cook...so if you want to never cook you just wander there! It sounds so wonderful except for something rotten in the core of this family...sigh!
I'll share my newly purchased books tomorrow!
