Truth is that I need to coffee more on Monday than Sunday, anyway. This weekend (ever since I bought that box of candy canes) I’ve been enjoying peppermint mochas. Mmm.
Short week at work, but likely a busy one with all we have going on. Best thing? The week ends with my birthday.
When we bring her in for the night or just walk within a few feet of her, this is what she does. Stop. Drop. Offer tummy.
Sometime last year I promised myself that I was going to get back into reading again. Wedding planning is a black hole, a vortex that sucks out all your energy and all the room your brain has for fun things. And for me that was reading. Lately I have been back at it and one of the things that has helped my transition back into “Reader” has been PaperBackSwap.com. This place is a wonder. A miracle. And I’m so sad I wasn’t introduced to it until a few months ago. But I jumped right in and started posting and receiving books. Let me tell you what I’ve received so far.
- The Birth House by Ami McKay
- The River Wife by Jonis Agee
- The End of Alice by A.M. Homes
- Mutant Message Down Under by Marlo Morgan
- Country Matters: The Pleasures and Tribulations of Moving from a Big City to an Old Country Farmhouse by Michael Korda
- Sarum by Edward Rutherford
- The Forest by Edward Rutherford
- The Princes of Ireland: The Dublin Saga by Edward Rutherford
- A Lost Lady by Willa Cather
- The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather
- And Ladies of the Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer
- The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy
A few of those are epic sized. No idea when I will get to them, but I am slowly working my way through. During NaBloPoMo I will post my review of The End of Alice, but as we speak it is on its way to the next reader.
What are you reading lately? Are you a member of PaperBackSwap.com? If so, add me as a friend.
TOMORROW: Starting a series of posts covering our honeymoon trip up to Maine and Prince Edward Island, Canada. Long overdue, but I hope you’ll stop by. Lots and lots (and lots!) of pictures.
