The Sunday Salon: Slowest Month Ever

Books Read and Reviewed in July
Funny in Farsi
People of the Book

The Reason Why
Big Thick Book

And that's pretty much July at SmallWorld Reads.

I have a 14-hour car trip coming up this week (and I will probably only drive a couple of those hours), so surely I will be able to finish the last 700 pages of The Count! But I must reiterate, that while this is a really thick book to get through, it is well worth it.

I hope you keep liking the count. I felt it slowed down a LOT in the last 700 pages. But I agree that the first 500 or so are well worth reading.

The Count of Monte Christo is well worth it!

Oh man, I hope you know how blessed you are to be able to read in a moving car! I have never been able to. Enjoy!

Have a safe and fun trip! I don't do well reading on long car trips. It's not that I get sick--I'm lucky in that I haven't been carsick once in my life--but I do love seeing the sights as we drive.

It's different when we're driving someplace I've been a million times. Then I don't mind popping the book out. Someday I may try an audio book for a long drive. My husband and I will just have to find something we can agree on. :-)

Have a great time.

One really good book is worth a pile of twaddle. :-D Have a safe and fun trip.
