Another book for my "Currently Reading" list

I am sure you have noticed that my reading habit tends to have me reading more than one book at a time. I know I am not the only one, but I wanted to explain all the books over in my currently reading widget. There are four. I know, crazy, huh?

Well, one comes in daily increments over email that I read at rest time every day (or at least that was the plan) while I eat my lunch. One is on my iPhone that I only read when I am out of the house and in need of something to read. One (usually the bulkier or denser read) stays by my bed for nightly reading before I go to sleep. The fourth, usually an easily portable (paperback or small hardcover) and shorter in length book that can be read while relaxing in the bath or while eating and can be tossed in my bag whenever needed.

I picked up that fourth book yesterday since I found myself lacking one. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart and I am loving it already. I can tell that Frankie is going to be a favorite character and I have only read a couple chapters.

So who is Frankie?

Here is a little info on her.

"Between May and September, she gained four inches and twenty pounds, all in the right places. Went from being a scrawny, awkward child with hands too big for her arms, a frizz of unruly brown fluff on her head, and a jaw so sharp it made Grandma Evelyn cluck about how 'When it comes to plastic surgery, it never hurts to do those things before college,' to being a curvaceous young woman with an offbeat look that boys found distinctly appealing." Page 5, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart.

Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
