Thunderstorms and a terrified Maltese shook me awake at 4:30 this morning. Once he found that I was awake, he climbed up on my pillow, buried himself under my chin and trembled so hard I thought he might fall apart! Clearly going back to sleep before the storm ended wasn’t going to happen.
So I did what I always do when I have an unfilled stretch of time… I read. Not wanting to get deeply engrossed in the book I’m currently reading and end up not going back to sleep the rest of the night, I downloaded a free selection onto the nook app on my phone. “Waking Kate” by Sarah Addison Allen is a free download for both nook and kindle but I’m not even sure what to call it. At only thirty eight pages it isn’t even a novella but was the perfect length to fill the short period of time until the thunder ended. “Waking Kate” is a teaser for her newest book “Lost Lake.” Which, after reading this short prequel during the wee hours of the morning, I have added to my must read list! Of course I would read pretty much anything by this author!
