Depends on how many books are in my TBR pile but usually read close to 100 pgs per day. Some go faster than others. Paisley Roof is aimed at sort of a YA reader so it makes sense that it comes of a little juvenile but I liked it a lot anyway. Interested to know what you thought but of course, no rush!
Oh I loved it! I am the one running the publicity campaign for this book so I know it sounds like I am probably biased, but as a part of my job I have to read like 10 bad to mediocre books a month and usually one or two good ones. This was definitely one of the good ones. It was just kind of a delight. The quirky characters, the subtly complex relationships - plus the author has been just so sweet to work with which always helps. What are your impressions on the book so far? Or have you finished it?
Hi pinkcrayon, and thanks for the friend add! I generally prefer to be "friends" with people I know or who share common interests. Unless we get to know one another better, would you mind very much if we went with the "interesting library" option instead? :-)
Thanks for the compliment.
