Friday Book Club, plus Giveaway! What have you been reading? Anything you recommend? Anything you’re looking forward to for the weekend?
Right now, I’m reading Purkiss’s ENGLISH CIVIL WAR, a weighty tome (literally–heavy on the wrists), but one that I’m really enjoying. It looks at the English Civil War in a very personal way, through the way individuals reacted to it/were affected by it. Quite fascinating, if you enjoy history.
Also, this past week, I was reading Jessica Scott’s BACK TO YOU. This is a beautifully written book about a marriage in trouble that really takes a very authentic, solid, real look at the effects of deployment on a marriage and a man, as that man tries to get his wife back. Jessica is an Army officer herself, and has served in Iraq, and she brings, then, this very real and insightful but also tender perspective to this couple.
And I have a signed copy of it! (This is one of the books I picked up at the signing last week, but because of the aforementioned weighty tome I ended up downloading it also so I could give my wrists a break and read on my mini iPad. Also, love that mini iPad for reading at night without turning on a light.)
So if you are interested, just mention it in the comments below. And, of course, the main purpose of the FRIDAY BOOK CLUB is for me to get good book recs. (See my selfishness? Ha! ) And also, just for us all to be able to spread the word about good books. So let us know if you’ve been reading anything good! Or what you’re looking forward to reading this weekend!
