Having a lack of coherent ideas today, I decided to pose some questions:
How can you all figure out so soon what you plan on reading for the readathon? I think perhaps I MIGHT know the day before! At this point, I'm thinking of pulling from my library stash (I renewed them, yey!) and some book fair books that I just bought (or last year's book fair books that I didn't read yet) and maybe a few pages in that very most neglected of neglected books... War and Peace. But I am for sure going to read Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.... then I know that I can at least say I read one book for the readathon!
Speaking of the readathon, how do you manage to stop your life? I won't be able to do that, but will just fit the reading in amongst the things that still need doing. And I will have to sleep. Party pooper I know. But I did tell my kids that I expect them to join me for the reading, and they seem actually fairly excited. So, hopefully that will work. The Mr. will NOT stop his day to read all day long, but hopefully he won't care if the rest of us do, or try. It's going to be an interesting experiment to say the least.
How is that The Mr. can have a birthday today and not want anything? I have a list a mile long of books I want and CDs I want! (Michael Buble's new one, the Joshua Bell one looks wonderful, David Archuletta's new Christmas one, I'd love an Owl City CD too ) Want want want! That's me!
What do you do when you blogging creativity suddenly takes a dive? Write random dumb question posts?
Hey, did you see my guest post at A Written World on Josh Groban? I had to give one more plug here because that thing took me forever to put together, and so really, you must go read.
Hey, did you see that The Bookword Game finally got some words suggested? Yey to those who pulled us out of what could have been the first bookword failure moment! You are the best! Go to An Adventure in Reading today to vote.
Don't you hate it when there's all kinds of author signings and appearances going on around you and you can't go? It's that old, real life thing getting in the way again. I'll be celebrating The Mr.'s birthday this evening, so I guess, Sherman Alexie, I'll just have to catch you next time.
What do you think about having a dude (guy? gentleman?) come to my f2f book group which has heretofore been only ladies? I think it might be kinda fun, but it could throw us for a loop too. The Mr. has dropped in on us several times, and often reads the books, but has never really stayed long, however, now another husband is acting interested. Hmmm..... it must be pondered longer.....
Well, I guess that's enough for one day. I've got to go shopping. And do a gazillion other things, so bye!
