Weekly wrap-up : number two

The weekly wrap-up is my way of keeping my loyal readers informed of my bookish activities holding myself to my bookish obligations. The questions may change slightly depending on the week.

Q: What are you reading right now?
A: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Q: Why are you reading it? Business? Pleasure? For review?
A: Strictly for pleasure, though I'll probably post a review. I'd like to see the movie, and I always try to read the book first.

Q: What was the last thing you read?
A: The Princess Bride by William Goldman. I'm participating in the readalong hosted by Chrisbookarama.

Q: What do you plan to read next?
A: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

Q: Why do you want to read it?
A: It sounds like a good book. I requested it through LibraryThing Early Reviewers, so I need to review it. As an added bonus, it is part of the Okra Picks Challenge hosted by Bermudaonion's Weblog that I'm participating in.

Q: What books did you acquire?
A: Purchased: A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore, Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem. Both authors will be in town this fall, so I bought these books in preparation.
From Publisher: The Distant Hours by Kate Morton

Q: What bookish places did you go to?
A: I went to The Book Loft while in Nashville, Indiana, on Monday. Watch for a "bookish place" post about this store coming soon.

Q: What bookish events did you attend?
A: None, unfortunately.

Feel free to share your answers to the weekly wrap-up questions. I'd love to hear them!

  1. With all the times I've been in Nashville, IN I've never heard of The Book Loft. I'll have to check it out next time I'm down there!

    I can't wait to see the "bookish place" post about it! Thanks for letting me know about it.
