Since this is the last Friday of the month, it’s time for a reading wrap-up. So far this month, I’ve read five books.
I’ve read a memoir, My Incredible Journey by Ossie Langfelder. Ossie’s father was Jewish and the family escaped Austria a year after Hitler invaded. Ossie himself later became the mayor of Springfield, Illinois, so it was an interesting read.
I read a marketing book, which was quite dated, but still had some useful information: Jump Start Your Book Sales by Marilyn and Tom Ross.
My fiction reads were: Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben, the first Myron Bolitar books. I didn’t care for the language and am not sure I’ll read more in this series. I do enjoy Coben’s later books though.
I also read Julianna Deering’s Dressed for Death, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I like this series that takes place in England during the late 20s or early 30s I think.
Another fiction book I finished was Jo Bannister’s Desperate Measures. This is part of a series that also takes place in England (hmmm, can you tell where I want to travel someday??) anyway, it’s modern times but involves solving a mystery.
Right now, I’m in the middle of Sarah Sundin’s Anchor in the Storm and am enjoying it. I’ll probably finish it over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
So that’s 5 1/2 books for the month, not bad! I’ve also been busy working on marketing Cookie Encounter and trying to master MailChimp. Ugh. More technology.
Anyway, happy reading!
