I am in a bookish mood. Which… for me….can be dangerous. I want to read, which is a good thing, but I want to read about everything I see. I am very happy with my current read, Summer at Tiffany, but finishing up my review of Thumbing Through Thoreau last night left me hungry for words. I want to finish Stop Laughing At Me, and get started on The Red Queen, and I have yet to read Linger but I want to…. and finish up my thoughts on Her Fearful Symmetry, and why have I waited so long to read Fallen…..
Well…. you are picking up what I am putting down. I am in a reading frenzy. Which actually is perfect as after my morning bike ride with Wendy at 8 am (goal: 32 miles and breakfast in between) and a brief stop at the bike shop, I am coming home to do some cleaning while listening to audio, and also some reading. I have the house to myself today so after my initial break out this morning – I do not plan on leaving again.
And since I am hungry for words I will shoot off a couple other random things here –
This morning I signed up for Audiobook Community. I haven’t really looked into it much yet but I do like audio. I am also waiting patiently for the promise from Swaptree that they will soon be swapping audio books. They originally said August 1, but it has yet to happen.
I also want to put in a little plug her for Kay Arthur’s book, Cinderella Society. I read it last fall and really enjoyed it. While emailing her last night I realized I never did really give a shout out to her book when it went live this spring. So, check out my review of Cinderella Society and see if it is a fit for you.
FINALLY – finally.... I received this interesting email about the books our current and past two Presidents have read their first year in the office. (Well, of course I was curious!) As much as I wanted to believe that maybe at least one of these Presidents curled up in the oval office with something to the likes of The Hunger Games, dabbled back in the day with a little Harry Potter, or indulged in a great mystery like Shutter Island… this was not the case. At least not in this document.
