Sunday, November 5

books & stuff

I finally got my hands on Undead and Unappreciated on Thursday, but didn't really get much time to read until yesterday. Done! Again. These books are just so addicting. Really. I also picked up Undead and Unreturnable and immediately started it. I'm sure it'll be done by the end of the day, which is kinda sad because the 5th in the series - Undead and Unpoplular - doesn't come out in paperback until December and I'm just way too cheap to buy a hardcover.

As I think I mentioned before, it's not like I don't have a bunch of other books to read. In fact, I have four other books in various stages of unread that I can go back to - The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice, Angels & Demons by Dan Brown, The Art of Happiness by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D., and The Celestine Prophecy: An Experential Guide by James Redfield. Plus, I'm still waiting on the latest Stephanie Plum book (Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich) to come out in paperback, and have been casually looking for The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K. Hamilton. So, never a shortage of reading material... just never enough hours. And, with some of the books I'm reading, I have to be in a certain mindset to really absorb the info. At least I'm not the only one who's like this! When Stacie and I talked about all the books we were each reading, I think her last active read count was up to 14. Yikes!

In other news (which there really isn't that much of!) it absolutely DUMPED rain ALL day yesterday! I swear I thought I was going to need a boat. We went out to a birthday party for a little girl in WJ's class in the early afternoon, and by the time we headed home 2.5 hours later the roads were flooding, our new soccer and baseball fields looked like ponds, and it was still coming down. It was insane! I don't know when it stopped since I headed to bed early (well, early for me) but so far this morning, no rain. It's really nice to see the sun trying to peek out.

Today will just be the usual Sunday - laundry, house cleaning, football, vegging out and reading. Oh, and making phone calls to other school parents trying to finish up this stupid volunteer project I agreed to do. Ugh! Guess I'd better get a move-on.

Holy kraut, finished more, eh? Here are a few more suggestions for you: The Bergdorf Blondes and The Debutante Divorcee by Plum Sykes. As soon as I finish Memoirs of a Geisha, I think I'm going to read The Time Traveler's Wife.
