Just an Update

I'm back in Maine from Florida. My mom is still in agony from her four compression fractures. She'll find out tomorrow if she is a candidate for a precedure where they inject cement into her spine. If so, it will happen on Friday. We're keeping our fingers crossed that this will occur.

I'm still working on The Shadow of the Wind. It takes place in Barcelona so that makes it interesting. I don't think I've ever read a book set there.

Daniel Sempere finds a book written by Julian Carax and it leads him on a quest to find out more about the author. The novel is full of quirky characters and mysteries.

I'm enjoying it but haven't had much time to read since getting back because my granddaughter, Kylie, is visiting for the weekend. We went to the library yesterday and she picked out three books that we are going to read today.

Your poor mom! I hope she is approved for the procedure. I'll cross my fingers for her as well.

I've been wanting to read The Shadow of the Wind for a while now. One of these days I may actually get around to it.

Enjoy your visit with Kylie and have a great week!

So sorry your Mum's troubles still last. Hope the prochedure on Friday helps.

Linda, I hope you had fun with Kylie. I feel so sorry for your mom. What an awful thing to go through. My mom has had some major back surgeries so I can understand how hard it is to watch them suffer. I'll be praying this surgery comes through for her and she can have some relief from this pain she's suffering. Hope you have a good week.

I hope your Mum is doing OK.

I also hope you enjoy Shadow of the Wind. I read it a few years ago and really enjoyed it. The whole idea of a Cemetery of Lost Books is so appealing to us book lovers, isn't it?

Look forward to hearing your thoughts when you finish it.
