Summer Reads

I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night at 11:37 PM. I then stared at the ceiling for a good hour or so processing what I had read. I started out slowly with this book, not sure I was going to like it, but the momentum built quickly and once Lisbeth was more fully introduced I could not put it down.

I will be driving to the bookstore this morning to pick up the next two in the trilogy. These are perfect summer reads.

I was recently called a "book snob." Yes, I am. I WILL NOT read Twilight. I WILL NOT. Funny, the comment came from someone who hasn't picked up a book in months. She couldn't remember the last book she had read. And she is surprised at how well my children read and what they read. Go figure.

  1. I thought the trilogy was an involving experience. I love Lisbeth, have a lot of problems with the violence (sexual and otherwise) done to women, and the character of Mikael B, but nonetheless enjoyed reading them.

    I'm going to try to see the Swedish film tomorrow night.

    Your friend says snob, I say selective. And I won't read Twilight either, speaking of books with problematic attitudes to women.
