Valerie I finished Surface Tension Surface Tension by Joanna Hines a few days ago. I belong to a few groups, so I have a lot to read.

I enjoyed this book, it's basically about a wife who wants to find out about her husband's secretive past. So she takes all the steps to find out about his past and meanwhile her life is falling apart.

Valerie Now I'm reading As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner . I started this over the weekend.

I'm moving slowly through this book. This is the first time I'm reading a book by his author.

Valerie Ok, now I'm finished As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner .

I was just plowing slowly through this book. I gave it 1 star.

This book is about a family who goes across the country to bury their mother. Each family member tells their story. It took them about a week to bury her and they went across country in a horse and wagon. There was no refrigeration at that time and vultures were following them.

Sometimes, I eat and snack when I read. I could not with this book.
