Compared to recent weeks, this seemed like a slow reading week for me. I finished reading Sabrina on Tuesday and couldn't get my head into anything else. It's not that it was a deep novel or anything, but it put me in the mood for another western romance and I didn't have anything else like that on my bedside table. I have three more romances in the queue for Monday's library pickup, but that didn't help me much last week :-).
To jump start my reading, I used logic: which book has to go back to the library next? In this case, that would be The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I didn't plan to read that book; it was one of M's requests. I must admit that I was put off by the beginning of the book. Since it is a book for kids, I wasn't expecting it to start with a guy chasing a toddler with a knife. It wasn't graphic and I know that people end up in the graveyard all sorts of ways, but I guess I expected everyone to be dead before the book started. The only other Gaiman book I've read was a picture book about a kid trading his dad for goldfish, so maybe The Graveyard Book is closer to his other work and Gaiman fans won't be surprised by it. I still haven't decided if I am going to keep reading it.
