In my continuing quest to finish these book challenges, I have had a slight problem with the “Bad Blogger” part, as I only read one book blog regular, my BFF Lesley’s. (Well, ok, now I read Melissa's as well.)
Anyway, I had some listed that I thought I’d get around to that I’d read from Lesley’s blog, but on a recent trip to the bookstore-that-shall-not-be-named because I had to get a gift card for a friend, I found a copy of the book Found II in the $1 bin. I have been a fan of Found and it’s attendant website (www.foundmagazine.com) for several years now, so for $1, I swallowed my pride and bought the book.
I’m glad I only spent a dollar, honestly. I think Found might work better as a “blog” type thing. By about halfway through, I was tired of reading people’s dropped lists, letters, notes, emails, papers, etc. I put it aside for a few days and completed it a bit later on and that helped me to get through it.
I love the voyeuristic nature of Found, and the letters, pictures, and whatnot in this particular book were no exception. Recently I was walking with Leah down the street and we found a letter that I thought immediately of sending into Found, only Leah got her hands on it and ate it. Pity! It would have been perfect.
Nonetheless, I do and will continue to read the Found site/blog occasionally and catch up on new finds. But I don’t see myself reading it in book form any more! PostSecrets keeps my attention a bit more easily, maybe because it’s shorter. Some of the stuff in Found II went on a bit long! I’ll give it 3 stars on Goodreads.
And thus am I finished with one more book for the TwentyTen Challenge, leaving only the TBR category and one more book left to read, before I’ll have completed 3 of the challenges I signed up for. I am sure I’ll get it done before the end of December and am super-proud of myself for getting it done! WOO HOO! :-D
