The rules are simple. You spotted a book and checked if it would be something for you no matter how that turned out. Write a post with general information of the book and the reason why it caught your interest and if you did or did not add it to your to be read pile.
Raise your hand if you know how long I have not been making any progress in Pillars of the Earth. It is terrible but the last update on Goodreads was made on July 21th 2013. I have not been listening to it ever since. I am now planning to read the rest in paper but as this is the second book in the series I will not pick it up before I read Pillars.
As adults, their lives will be braided together by ambition, love, greed and revenge. They will see prosperity and famine, plague and war. One boy will travel the world but come home in the end; the other will be a powerful, corrupt nobleman. One girl will defy the might of the medieval church; the other will pursue an impossible love. And always they will live under the long shadow of the unexplained killing they witnessed on that fateful childhood day.
The guy walking around with the book seemed to be perfectly happy though he was not reading it and I could not spot a bookmark.
