Checking out eBooks from the library is really cool—until the book expires and other patrons put holds on it, preventing me from checking it out again, and I was just getting to the good part, the part of the budding forbidden romance. Augh!
So I haven’t finished The Secret Life of Bees.
I am probably not going to get a whole lot of reading done this weekend, anyway, because I usually do most of my reading on Sunday and this Sunday is the Oscars.
I am almost done with Finding It, though, and will probably check out the follow-up novella, Seeking Her, because this is one of the instances where I am actually interested in re-experiencing the story through the other half’s perspective.
Maybe I can sneak in some reading during the commercials.

Sue Monk Kidd has a new book out that is intriguing to me, because it is a fictionalized account of the Grimke sisters, and I read about these South Carolina abolitionists when I was in college. So I decided to first check out Kidd’s debut bestseller, The Secret Life of Bees, from the library. I kind of can’t believe I haven’t read it before now.
“My chest hurt from feeling things. I wondered if T. Ray was pacing the floors feeling as injured as I hoped he did. Maybe he was telling himself what a rotten excuse for a father he was for not treating me better, but I doubted it. Thinking up ways to kill me was more like it.”
What are you reading this weekend?
