Wishin' and Hopin'
by Wally Lamb
I don't remember where I first heard about this, but my name went on the list (along with many other library patrons) the day it was released. Two days ago, I was third in line. Yesterday, Wishin' and Hopin' was waiting for me! Wally Lamb is a great storyteller and I've enjoyed all his books, so can't wait to get started on this one. We're traveling to Massachusetts later today for Daughter #1's basketball tournament. Now I've got some holiday reading to bring along.

Jill at Fizzy Thoughts reviewed this last week and I put a hold on it right away. Now I just hope that with all the holiday hoopla, there will be time to read it!
I've also been at the top of the Wolf Hall hold list for several weeks now. (What's taking so long, anyway?) As it gets deeper into December, my reading time is sure to dwindle, and I'm worried that this will arrive at the worst possible time. Did you find anything interesting at the library this week?
