With a job that requires a lot of travel, my dear husband bought me a Nook for Christmas so I can reduce the bulk that I’m carrying through airports. I do have to say that I love it and use it a ton, even more than I had expected. I finally feel like I can spend time reading without carrying the bulk of books around with me and its easy to grab it and through it in my purse. In my effort to bulk up my reading I have been doing some research on the “it” books and stumbled across Where’d You Go Bernadette- you may have heard of it already as its been on tons of best-selling lists and book clubs.
I loved this book! It was an easy read but truly interesting- looking at a family dynamic where the mother is troubled after much loss in her life, the father is consumed with his job and their daughter is a gifted, peculiar and exceptionally smart. Its funny, reflective and surprisingly relatable. I felt a little empty when it was over, I wished there was a little more. But I guess thats what a good book leaves you feeling like! I just read that the rights to the book were sold for a movie! I can’t wait to see it portrayed on the big screen!
