So this was difficult...prompt number 10 on my 45 by 45 list read at least 3 books. During the summer I checked out a book and really didn't make the time to read. I let it be overdue and as a good citizen paid my fine. But just as the movie marathon I thought "come on Claudia you are almost there!" I mean the first step was checking the book out right? So I renewed it and gave it another chance. I tried reading while Emma napped but didn't really worked out. The picture below I took the very first day I checked it out back in July, you can see Emma in the background still in napping in her baby swing. I found out that the best time for reading for me was at night right before bed when everyone was asleep. It was so nice the house was quiet and I could really concentrate. I also read bit and pieces right after I dropped off Xavi. This was at Sophia's schools parking lot she listened to music, Emma slept and I read...we made it work out.
The book was titled "The lover" an autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras. The story of a French's girl's life in Indochina, her affair with a Chinese millionaire, her relationship with her mother and two brothers are all intertwined and filled with pain, love, hate and fear. I won't deny that it was a difficult read for me. At times I found myself lost and had to re read again. I did enjoy the book which was also made into a movie and plan to watch it soon.
Two more books to go on this goal. Any good books you've read recently? This was a short book so I guess I was lucky too!
