So I just got back from a long road trip that started on Tuesday. I was in the car for about 11-12 hours in total. From here to Louisville to Nashville back to Louisville and now home. To pass the time, I checked out a few books on CD from the library.
If I could change one thing about books on CD it would be this…PLEASE tell me when the CD is over. Seriously, all books on CD should REQUIRE this. I cannot tell you how many times I find myself listening and then I’m all like, “Wait, this sounds familiar? What the heck? Have I not been paying attention?” and then I glance at the dashboard and see that it’s started over on track 1 or (yes this has happened) it’s even on track 2 again. Argh. And if I’m in my van with the 6 CD changer? Double argh. Because I often don’t catch the end quick enough to get the CD out before it changes to the next one. Pet peeve.
Therefore, I was tickled pink when I put in Bulls Island and 45 minutes later I heard a pause and then a firm, “THIS COMPLETES DISC ONE”. YAY!!!! It’s the small things that make me happy. Overall, I enjoyed this story, but especially since it took place in Charleston and I could just see the ocean, etc.
And if you haven’t read any of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series…where have you been? She’s hilarious. Definitely NOT a serious read. Start with book #1…One for the Money. Stephanie Plum is a crack-up bounty hunter and there’s even a Twighlight-like love triangle, but instead of Jacob vs. Edward…you get to choose either Team Ranger or Team Morelli. My vote is still not quite final, but I lean towards Team Ranger in a nonsensical way. And it looks as though they’ve finally filmed the movie which will be out later this year. I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy, but apparently a lot of that cast is in this movie from first glance. I guess it took so long to get going, that the original rumor of Sandra Bullock playing the Stephanie part didn’t happen possibly due to her age. Katherine Heigl is Stephanie…not sure I picture that since I’ve had Bullock in my head so long. Bummer.
Anyone else a Plum fan? What are you reading right now? Your summer reading list?? Do share.
