THE THIRD TWIN LAUNCH PARTY

Waiting on Wednesday: NOBEL GENES by Rune Michaels

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week's choice is not normally in my vein of novels I enjoy to read but it's cover is eye catching and once my attention was captured I was intruged by its story. Now I want to read it, so there ya go.


It's tough to measure up to your parent' expectations. Imagine how much harder it would be if your mother told you that your biological father-whom you'd never met-was a Nobel prize -winning genius? What if, you found out that you'd been living a lie, and that the truth was darker than you could have imagined?

Does it matter who you come from? Or are we all just made of dust?

Nobel Genes will be out from Simon and Schuster summer 2010

Exerpt

Mom has taught me that genes are important. Half of what i am came from my dad. But he came from his parents and so on back through tthe ages, all the way back to the primordial soup I read about in cosmology book.

That's how I must think of it. I came from a puddle of mud back at the beginning of time. Everybody did.


What is your Waiting on Wednesday?

How very intriguing! Not necessarily the kind of book that I would normally pick up but the concept really grabs my attention. I think that I will keep an eye out for this one, too!

I have an award for you!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
