I love finding things people leave in books but this is the first time I've found something that I left in a book almost 30 years ago!
I am sick so I decided to stay in my pajamas and rest in bed. I had pulled out this book to read next because I was sure it was the book I'd had the longest. It is also a hardcover book and they take up too much room in my shelves. I started reading it and came across a piece of paper printed in red that looked like a $5 bill. They were called Safety Bucks. It is from my first job as a teen which I got when I was 17. I think this was from 1989 when I was 18. I really didn't remember much about these but my husband just said they could be used to buy things at the hotel. I think they were earned for not being injured on the job for a certain length of time.
This is the time when I met my husband (he worked there too) and in September 1st, 1991 we were married.
What an exciting little read!
It was my first time reading a book from Brad Thor, and I loved the subject matter. Who wouldn't enjoy an espionage thriller with Somali pirates? I know I did, and it also made me want to read more from the author. I even may start this series right, since this novella is #11.5 in the series, but I didn't know that when I sat to read it. I don't think it mattered anyway. I don't feel like I missed out on anything previously so it's all good.
So, I finished 6 books this month. Not bad for me. 4 of them were Netgalley reads and all of those were good, as was the most recent installment of the time travel series I follow. The one YA book I read was reasonably good even, with a few allowances.
The only problem is that when I was giving feedback at Netgalley, I went a bit mad and requested too many books again! If my currently reading shelf looks mental, it's because I always put my review promises there, even if I haven't started them yet.
This could take a while.
