Book Review: Secrets of a Massage Therapist

In this book I reviewed for Fresh Fiction, Angie, a massage therapist, gives us an inside look at her life.  The style of this book reminded me a lot of Studs Terkel's "Working," as it was a lot like just following her around and eavesdropping on her work day (except Studs talked to his subjects and this was a novel, obviously).

This also a bit of mystery sneaked into it, but it definitely took a backseat to the good stuff.

The full review is here.

On another note, so far this year, I have read 45 books and a total of 14,367 pages.  My goal is 26,000 pages, so I'm well ahead of schedule.  Last year, my goal was 35,000 pages, which I revised to 30,000 pages at the halfway point.  I think I got these backwards!
