Book 2 out of 6 is now finished and back on the shelf ... while at the beach I finished reading "Water For Elephants" by Sara Gruen. I really enjoyed reading the book and found that the pages went by rather quickly.
From wikipedia ... "The story is told as a series of memories by Jacob Jankowski, a 'ninety or ninety-three year-old' man who lives in a nursing home." It tells of his time working as a circus veterinarian and the people that he meets while there. This description is of course very vague, but only because I don't want to give away the beautiful and enchanting story.
I'm looking forward to many more sunny weekend days to continue reading more books. More importantly I can't wait to see the "Water for Elephants" movie with the very handsome Robert Pattinson.
