The Sunday Salon #55: Cut for Stone

The Sunday Salon.com

I am very slow with completing books as I am consumed with job hunting for a health lawyer position in MA. I thought it would be fun to track my reading progress each week. The Sunday Salon is  an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience. To learn more or to join, click on the picture above.

The past week and this morning I devoured more of Cut for Stone by Abraham Verghese. The book continues to engage and amaze me.  I still like the characters and the story is very intricate.  I wrote about this book last week; you can find my post here.

Since my days do not have much structure, I notice that I love escaping into a good story much more.  I find myself thinking a lot about fictional characters and wondering what they would do in my job hunting predicament.  While there is something charming about wanting fictional characters to be part of real life, I also think that I need to get out of the house more!

This week, I finally posted my review of Shanghai Girls by Lisa See.  I felt really excited about my review because it means that I am finally caught up; now, I do not have any reviews hanging over my head!

I absolutely loved Cutting for Stone. It will probably rank #1 or #2 for my 2010 reads. Brilliant writing, wonderful story. And yes, very emotional!

Terri: I think that it is going to be one of my top reads for 2010 as well. What an incredible piece of work.
