I keep an ongoing list on my phone's notebook app off all the books I want to read. Whenever somebody mentions a good book or I read about one in a magazine or whatever I add it to the list so the next time I go to the bookstore I can remember what it was I wanted to read.
About a month ago Russ found the list and emailed it to himself without my knowing. One day he just showed up with one of the books on the list. I was so excited not only because he did a wonderful thing for me but because I can't make a decision to save my life and the deciding of what book to read next was already done for me.
The book was "I Was Told There'd Be Cake" which is a collection of essays. There wasn't the pull of the story to keep me reading nonstop and I just finished it Friday night. Saturday rolls around and Russ gives me another book! I really wasn't expecting it at all. I guess he bought them at the same time and was waiting for me to finish the first one before giving me the second. This one is "The Time Traveler's Wife" and I am in love with it already only 150 pages in. Thank you Aimee for the suggestion it truly is a wonderful story and I can't wait to see how it ends.
