I did it again. Went through the cart of returned books, even read the inside flap and ended up with a book that I had read before. As I was reading the book yesterday, I was thinking to myself that the story seemed familiar, but I couldn't remember the ending. Do I worry about this, or just chalk it up to having read way too many books in my life? What even makes it stranger, last night at my Mom's, she had a box of paperback books for me to take some home with me. And here the book was again, did I give it to her?
But yes, I enjoyed Susan Isaac's Any Place I Hang My Hat. It's about a young political writer who was able to make it out of a dysfunctional family situation by using her smarts. Now approaching thirty, she can't figure out why she has a difficult time with relationships. So she looks for the mother who left her to find out why. I guess I enjoy Isaac's characters and writing to be able to re-read the book, but even while reading the book I wasn't able to remember the exact details including the ending. Sad or what?
