Booking Through Thursday - Holidays


It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so let’s keep today’s question simple–What are you reading? Anything special? Any particularly juicy summer reading?

I am reading Skid by Rene Gutteridge. As a humorous look at airline pilots, it's perfect for a summer read. Can you imagine, flying in an airplane with these passengers: Lucy, a woman reading and quoting Secret to help her get over her ex is sitting next to Hank, a not-too-bright airline industry spy; a handcuffed convict who flirts with the aging flight attendant; a man transporting diamonds; and a pig--yep! a PIG! All of this is wrapped around a pilot's final flight. I'm halfway through, chuckling as I read.

I'm getting ready to start reading The Shack by William P. Young. I've heard it's thoughtful and perhaps controversial. I actually don't read a lot of fiction, but I thought I'd give this a try and see what I thought. BTW, I enjoyed the poem you posted for the 4th of July. I see you and I were the only ones who got a chance to play along at Robin's Pensieve. Glad I got a chance to check yours out.
