Today is the day we begin reading our first book for the book challenge!
I'm super excited to announce the first book; we'll be reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arther Golden. I thought this would be a good starting point since it seems like it will be an easier read, and there was quite a bit of interest in the book (at least that's what I've gathered from comments, phone calls and e-mails). The book has recieved quite a bit of buzz from reviews as well; here's hoping it's as entertaining of a read as its rumored to be.
There are also at least three other copies at the Grayslake library for those of you who are local; I assume the other libraries will have a few copies, too, as it is listed as a national bestseller.
My copy is a little more than 400 pages, so I'm shooting to finish about two and a half weeks from today.
I'll announce the second book a week from today, so comment about which one you'd like to read next! Happy reading!
