There have been a lot of "Opening Sentence" posts here on Rose City Reader lately.
My excuse is that I have been so hectic at work and with a landscaping redo at home that I haven't had time to review any books. I blame child abusers and poodle trees.
When I get crazy busy like this, I don't have the attention span for heavy books. I keep reading because it relaxes me, but I've been reading mysteries, chick lit, and other lighter stuff that I read for entertainment. I don't need anything thought-provoking right now -- the point is to let my brain calm down, not rev up!
So I am going through books very quickly, hence all the Opening Sentence posts, but not reviewing or otherwise posting with much substance. Please bear with me for a while.
