Literary Wednesday

This weeks book is brought to you thanks to The Many Thoughts of a Reader!

I signed up to participate in a Book Tour and read a book then pass it on to the next reader!  The book I read was Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro!


As soon as I received the package in the mail with the book inside, I was super excited because I had kind of forgotten that I was getting the book.  I quickly took the book out of the package and started reading that night.  I was hooked within the first sentence and couldn't put it down! I wanted to bring it to work and read but I restrained myself!  Here's a little teaser:

Meet Lucy Fisher - a fun loving, easy going woman who comes home from a vacation with her girlfriends to find all her clothes and belongings tossed out on the loan, the doors locked and her fiance no where to be found!  To make matters worse, she loses her job!  She decides to start fresh and move in with her sister and nephew!  Just when you think that Lucy is going to get her life back on track, she has a very unfortunate run in with a bus.  She then wakes up to find her self not in heaven but in ghost school where she has to learn how to be a good ghost in order to fulfill her ghostly assignment and get in to heaven!

I enjoyed reading this book and I am interested to read other books by Laurie Notaro to compare.  If you have the opportunity to pick up this book, I definitely recommend it!

Thanks for all the comments on my 5k race!  Monday afternoon at work I was struck with extreme stomach cramps.  I think I may have had a 24 hour virus of some sort and I am not sure if that played any part in the race on Sunday.  I am taking it easy because I haven't been able to eat much.  Tomorrow is looking like it will shape up to be a beauitful day and I am going to get outside for a run!

Happy Reading and Running!

Thanks for the kind words re: my post. It is hard to not want to go farther or faster when reading other people's blogs. Although, I have to say you are pretty fast yourself!

Sounds like an interesting book. Sometimes I like to read stuff that's purely entertaining. Sounds like this one fits the bill.
