The Detroit Free Press has a Sunday book section. Most of the time I glance at the reviews and see little that captures my interest. Today's page, however, had this quote across the top:
"All children become sad in the late afternoon, for they begin to comprehend the passage of time."
It's the first line of The Theory of Clouds by Stephane Audeguy
That's the only thing there is about the book; no review, no synopsis, nothing. It's the one book they mention that I think I might be interested in and they tell me nothing about it. *sigh*
Does that mean I'm really out of the main stream when it comes to books?
They list the following as the top five sellers:
You've Been Warned by James Patterson - I haven't read any of his works yet but my sister and my niece keep telling me I'd like them, or at least one of his series.
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - this one is on my TBR list
Dead Heat by Dick and Felix Francis - love Dick Francis so I'll probably get around to this one eventually.
Making Money by Terry Pratchett - I've got some of his books in my ever increase pile of books I want to read.
Pontoon - Garrison Keillor - I've listened to his radio program and thought it pretty funny but I haven't read anything by him.
So, two out of the top five are books I'll read and two are probables. So, maybe I'm not all that out of it.
Now, I think I'll go and see what I can find out about that other book...
