As is natural things have been quiet around here due to the busyness of the Thanksgiving holiday. But even when I did find some time for reading this weekend, I couldn’t settle into anything. Starting and stopping different books right and left. Incapable of becoming excited about any of the books on my bookshelf or nightstand. I hope this is not the beginning of a real slump, just life temporarily overwhelming me in a way which few books can alleviate. But just in case, I need your help in the form of your best no-fail stump breaker recommendations. All I ask is that they hook you within the first few pages. They don’t necessarily have to be short, quick, light and/or fluffy reads but of course those will do just fine too. Any genres welcome.
