The Goldfinch

I have just finished an amazing book.  A long book.  Until retirement, something I would have never found time to do except on vacation.  In fact, until retirement, I hadn’t been in our local library more than a handful of times.  And now, they know my name when I walk in.

But I read the 750 plus pages of The Goldfinch in ten days, (less than the fourteen allowed) and I can’t stop thinking about it.  Do you ever have a feeling after a good movie that you are envious of someone who can look forward to it?  That’s how I feel about this book.

Don’t take my word for it.  Read a review.  And then read the book.  You’ll thank me.

I just finished reading And Ladies of the Club by Helen H. Santmyer. At 1173 pages, I would never have read this doorstop while I was still working. Enjoy your reading!!
