Okay, it’s kind of late in the day to do a Hump Day Potpourri post.
But it’s been one of those days. Early this morning, I was shouting out about an upcoming release I’m excited about: Jodi Picoult’s upcoming book called The Storyteller.
Coming on or about 2/26/13, it promises to deliver the best ingredients of a book by this author:
Sage Singer becomes friends with an old man who’s particularly beloved in her community after they strike up a conversation at the bakery where she works. Josef Weber is everyone’s favorite retired teacher and Little League coach. One day he asks Sage for a favor: to kill him. Shocked, Sage refuses…but then he tells her he deserves to die.What do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who’s committed a truly heinous act ever redeem themselves with good behavior? Should you offer forgiveness to someone if you aren’t the party who was wronged? And most of all—if Sage even considers his request—is it murder, or justice?
Then my day continued, with the kinds of chores that I detest: scrubbing floors and general cleaning.
Next I finished reading Bonnie, by Iris Johansen: click for review.
I went for a few drinks at the bar around the corner, where my daughter works. And came home to start reading a book that wasn’t on my list for the week.
Midwives, by Chris Bohjalian. An Oprah Book Club pick that I missed when it first came out.
And now I’m frustrated, because Word Press is not letting me put the images in the correct place in this post!
Hope your day is going better than mine….Usually, it’s Blogger that messes with my images! Do you have days like this?
