It's one of those days where I really want to post something, preferably some sort of discussion post (even though I'm still behind in reviews, but a review seems too boring for today), but I can't think of anything really profound to discuss, and so I revert to a random post of bookish thoughts, as I'm prone to do when this sort of thing happens.....
And so it seems we are staying home for fall break. This means I will be reading in the readathon after all. Today I'll probably end up at the store for treats and munchies. For sure I'll be making caramel popcorn since that has now become the tradition! I think it just might turn out to be the perfect day for reading since the boys may be gone scout camping. We'll see how that turns out. But regardless, I'm excited to read the day away and maybe make a dent in some of the piles around here. Books I really hope to get to are: The Death Cure, The Iron Daughter, The Demon King, and The Night Circus. I'll be lucky though if I finish just one. Which one of these four do you think I should start with?
I told you how I held off on the Pinterest thing, but finally gave in over the weekend, right? Now I'm finding that I'm adding books over there and giving them a two or three word review. First the blog (two or three paragraphs), then Goodreads (two or three sentences) and now Pinterest with two or three words. Interesting progression, don't you think? Which do you like the best? Lots of info on a book? Or just a little bit?
Tomorrow is another author event over at Orem Library. Marilynn Robinson, winner of the Pultizer Prize for Gilead will be talking, reading, answering questions and signing. So local bloggers, come on out and join us! Let me know if you are coming so I can find you to say hi! I know many of you get a little more excited for the popular YA author appearances, but we should support these "literary" ones too, don't you think? (Ha, there's that word literary.... we had an interesting discussion on THAT word at book club last week! Can you guess the gist of it?) So, are you coming?
I was just thinking about what it would be like with no books or music in my life. That thought makes me crazy. Some people chose not to have either. I don't get that. I guess they fill their lives with something else that perhaps I don't have and then they don't get me. Still, sometimes I think about this and wonder where I'd be without these two passions of mine. It's a scary thought.
I need one more thought to make this post sort of balance out you know? But nothing much is coming to mind except this, after all this horror/supernatural reading I've been doing for RIP VI, I'm so ready for more fantasies and love stories! And after watching a certain Dr. Who episode the other day, that angel on the RIP VI button really really creeps me out!
Okay, over and out. Happy bookish thoughts to you all.
