My Place & Yours - What I'm Reading

My Place & Yours has returned with a new home. You can find it here over at Punky & Me. This weeks theme is What I am Reading! Currently I am attempting this one!

I started it before the move, but then packed it & didn't find it right away, but it is found again. It is tranlated from French so I don't know if the original version is quite as difficult but I started it & thought I needed a dictionary to read along with it. Not fun when you just need something light for before sleep! Oh well, I will persevere & see if things improve a bit. You can find more info on it at Dymocks if you want an overview of the story. I'm sure it is a good book like they say it is.

I am going to read some more of the stuff on the bookshelf though as it is too full. I will read & then decide to put the books on Bookmooch or not to give away. I have a stack in a box now waiting to be mooched. If you love books & are after some you can't find, this is the place to start in your search. You only need to give some books away & you can mooch some that you want as well! All for the cost of postage to mail yours to someone who needs what you have. lol

Edited to add that I have given up on this book. It's too hard. I give myself persmission to stop reading books I am not enjoying these days. Too many books to waste time on them.

Oh thank you for that bookmooch link, I will have to investigate that further!

Too bad you are finding your book a bit of a struggle, I loved the name immediately...!
