The first book we're reading is Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, a Gothic fantasy novel about a young boy who meets the girl of his dreams, literally. Based on the descriptions I've read, I can't wait to finish this book. Only trouble, it's hardcover and 576 long. A book this size is not hard for me to read, but it is hard for me to carry. I tend to do most of my reading on my 30 minute train commute to and from work, the book always carried inside my work bag. This book weighs down my bag and right shoulder (I'm a righty). I have to figure something out.
But no worries, I will get this book read by our second meeting February 24th. You can count on it.
