Happy Sunday, ducklings! How's she goin'? Going good here. We've all recovered from the plague and are back in business. The hubs is on vacation now so I foresee many days of doing nothing. I get lazy when he's around.
I could talk about all the book blogging controversies on the internets but A. I’m trying to be less “bloggy” here and B. aren’t we tired of it? Anyway it’s all a matter of people saying “you should review like this and if you don’t you are a Big Meanie” and that’s just silly. Let’s move onward.
I don’t know if it’s the heat or the fact that I’m reading Les Miserables on the side but I can’t get into a serious book. Instead, I’m reading things like Spoiled by Heather Dicks and Jessica Morgan. It’s cotton candy for the brain but soooo entertaining. I even downloaded an audiobook, The Expats, but haven’t even turned it on yet. I’ve been listening to Bananarama and Blondie all week instead (raise your hand if you remember them!). It’s just that kind of week.
Apparently the Universe is in tune with my mood because Sourcebooks sent me a bunch of romances this week. How did they know?
Last night I watched a bookish movie One for the Money, based on the Stephanie Plum series. It was cute but not great. I don’t know why she didn’t go for that Ranger guy. Yoozers! I would like to start reading the series now though.
How’s this for bizarre? I dreamt I was reading 50 Shades of Grey. Just happened to be reading it in this dream. I feel like I was in that episode of Futurama where Fry discovers his dreams have ads in them. I even woke up wondering if I was reading it then realized I wouldn’t fork out the $$$ for it. Library? Ebook only please. Har-de-har-har. Anyway the waiting list is too long. I’m waiting for Gone Girl from the library and I’m 13th in the queue. I’m thinking I might need to buy it. Here’s the thing though: if I buy it I know it will languish months on my shelf. A library copy provides a sense of urgency. “I must read it now! I only have 2 weeks!” Am I the only person who does this?
I should wrap this up. The Photo A Day Challenge was quite challenging for me this week but I did it. Here’s what you’ll find on my Tumblr.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
