Last night I opened the cover to a new novel and was greeted with the opening (paraphrased) paragraph.
"Mary and Katharine had reached a point in the evening from whence there was no return. They had half a bottle of Tanqueray. They had limes. Plenty of ice. The hell of it was, they were out of tonic water." **
Does that not just make your heart smile? Before I got any further into the book I realized it was 11 and Chelsea Lately was coming on so I summoned Nat to the couch so against his will. It was then that Chelsea commented that her next book was coming out soon!!! Not only do I love Chelsea and her shoes, but her books are hilarious!
I awoke to a damp, dark morning and wanted nothing more than to stay snuggled in pajamas and read all day. The chill had the exact same feel as it did when I was a kid and would wake up before everyone on a Saturday and settle back into bed with a Beverly Cleary or Judy Blume number and later RL Stine and Christopher Pike.
My reading has been put on hiatus this summer because I got involved in The Count of Monte Cristo, swore I wouldn't read anything else until I finished and then halfway into it got stuck. Kristen and Nat are both not pleased with me. I'll finish it one day I promise, but in the mean time, it's nice to get back to having a non-stop leisurely read handy. (Just finished a biography on Stephen King.)
What are you guys reading?
(In the mean time, I'm going to go ahead and click the "lackluster" button below this post for you. I know its a boring one. My apologies.) (But seriously, has anyone else noticed how fabulous Chelsea Handlers shoes are?)
