Trish's September Readalong – The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

>> Thursday, August 21, 2014

I am a serial Readalong failure but I’m going to give it a try.

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

I blame Les at Prairie Horizons for putting this book on my radar. It was her review that made me put this book on my TBR spreadsheet on June 23, 2008.

Yes, you read that right. I decided I wanted to read this book in 2008.

I blame myself for adding it to my wish list at the library sometime after that. Every once in a while I’d be looking at my library wish list and think “I should check that out soon but I’ve already got too many books out”.

I blame the sale email from I don’t even remember which store for making me finally buy the ebook this summer.

I blame one of the guys in my LibraryThing group for telling me shortly after I purchased the ebook that he’s sure I would like this book and should read it soon.

I blame Trish for announcing it as her Readalong book for September.

Go check out the details at Trish’s Blog to see if you want to join in. It should be fun and maybe if enough people I know join in I won’t fail at yet another readalong.

So finally over six years after adding it to my TBR spreadsheet I might actually read this book.

That's a lot of blame Ms. SuziQ!! But don't worry--no terrible shaming if you don't keep up. Maybe you'll love it so much that you'll finish with no problems! And then you'll wonder why you didn't read it 6 years ago. ;)

(as, been there done that with all of this...I get it)

Trish: Ha! I'm glad you convinced me. I'm enjoying it.
