No Surprise Here

Thursday, June 21, 2007
I changed my summer book list again. I was a bad girl on the way home tonight. You see, Mom wasn't feeling up to the football game so we gave it a pass. Rather than head to her place after work, I went home. The problem is that one of my stops is located less than a block from my favourite bookstore... Yikes. My credit card kept wriggling around in my wallet, begging to be let out and get some exercise. I tried to stop it, really I did but I couldn't help myself. 10 minutes (and 3 books later), the plastic was tucked safely back in it's hiding spot and I was on my way home again. I've added the three new books, and one a coworker lent me, to the list and moved a few back to my Amazon wishlist. There is still a grand total of twenty I'm hoping to finish by Labour Day. While I'm giving it a good try, I think I'm going to run out of time to finish them all (I'll get more than half done for sure though).

How is everyone else doing on their summer reading lists?

PS: WC, I'll finish up Saving Fish From Drowning (excellent!) this weekend and send it off early next week for you to enjoy!

Thanks! Looking forward to it!

Hey, what did you think of The Handmaid's Tale in the end?

Ah, the personification of the credit card--I've needed this device for years...imbuing the thing with needs that supersede my own!

I love the reader in you, fun girl.

I predict I won't even make it close to completing half of my list. I have yet to attempt to read more than one book at a time. I have also lost all my time management skills, and have thus wasted countless reading hours on who knows what!

Argh, I'm still on my second book!I'm going to have to quit my job or get rid of my family or something if I'm going to finish my list.
