I started reading Rebel of the Sands. I didn’t start until late in the day so reading the first 31 pages was all I had time for. I do really like the book so far and think that I can easily get through a large portion of it if I actually sit down and focus on reading. My updates and general observations can be found on Goodreads.
I’m also making progress in The Book of Esther. The plot is completely fascinating – what if the only thing stopping the Nazis from conquering Europe was a small Jewish nation? I’m reading it on my Kindle and am about 19% into the book.
I absolutely love Rebel of the Sands!! *sigh* If only the rest of my life wouldn’t get in the way. I have read up to page 126.
The Book of Esther has become pretty dense – lots of foreign words, culture and explanations to move the plot a long. I’m hoping the whole book isn’t like this. Today I made it to 23%. It’s not very far from where I was yesterday and I’m disappointed with my progress.
