#todayinsixwords: Wish I could’ve stayed awake longer.

I didn’t get to read as much as I hoped – my lunch break was cut short yesterday.  I couldn’t manage to stay awake and focus very long last night, either.  But I am loving this book SO much. And this morning I woke up to this notification that made my day!

Challenge

Today’s challenge is Book Pairings hosted by My Overstuffed Shelves. ‘This’ made me think of ‘that’: Just think about the book you are reading now, or one you’ve read before, and tell me something you think goes with it and why.

As I’m reading Goodnight June, I can’t help but think about the movie You’ve Got Mail, and make similar comparisons.  If you haven’t seen the movie (you should!) – it’s about two business rivals (Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks) who hate each other at the office (they both own bookstores), but fall in love over the internet.  Meg Ryan’s character owns a quaint children’s bookstore, that was in her family for years.  This is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I could only dream of owning an old fashioned bookstore, even though I know they are a dying breed.  Just something about the atmosphere and being surrounded by so many books – that’s my idea of heaven!

I’m enjoying this book so much – I love the story line and the writing.  I just want to curl up on my couch all day and read it.  Being a responsible adult sucks sometimes, lol.

Very excited for my first Bout of Books Readathon!  I’m glad it’s a week long event because I may actually be able to meet my goal.  I don’t plan on doing many of the challenges – my focus is just to read.  I will participate some on Twitter and Instagram.  With a 3-year-old at home, my reading time is limited, so we’ll see how this goes!

No pretty book stacks because everything is on my Kindle(s).

    Aw – don’t feel bad. That’s certainly progress. My reading was cut short yesterday due to massive period cramps 😦 😦 I couldn’t concentrate,so ended up sleeping through a majority of the day. Today I’m suddenly having a head-ache. Lol…what’s going on? 😛

    I’ve got an ARC for Goodnight June lurking about my office and comparing it to You’ve Got Mail only makes me want to read it more. Thanks for your pairing!
