Bookcrossing meetup and more on books
It has been ages since my last participation to a meetup with the local bookcrossers, and today I finally managed to go. Luckily for me, I could get rid of several books, without picking up any. Mr D would have been pleased...he has always complained about the insane quantity of books that I am surrounded with.
I have been very good in not signing up for many bookrings or bookrays, and those that have been visiting me did not stay long. The best thing of all is that I am making progress in culling my Mount TBR, easy task when reading Sue Grafton's alphabet series...so far, I have read up to "I". As soon as the three rings in my hands have left, I shall keep on reading. They're fairly short, but the plots are gripping, and I have grown quite fond of the main characters.
Another book that came to visit, quite unexpected, is "World Without End" by Ken Follett. I was very enthusiastic of "The Pillars of the Earth" when I read it, back when it was first printed, and could not wait to read the follow-up (if I can call it so). Therefore, how could I say no when someone offered me the book on loan?
I am sure that I won't be able to start it before February, but still I can feel the tempting call of all those 1,111 pages...
