I haven't really read anything in a couple days! I kinda want to read Sarah Waters, but that is no where near anything that I am supposed to be reading. My library pile is crazy (31 books) and I have a few books on the go. Plus, I have buddy reviews that are sort of stalled because I haven't finished the book... I need to get on the ball here. I still haven't read the newest Patricia Briggs book! That is just scandalous behaviour for me!
In other news, I found out that one of my oldest friends is pregnant with her first child. I am still not sure that has entirely sunk in yet. She will be a great mother, but it is still hard to believe at the same time. I am all ready trying to decide what books to buy and the baby is not due for another 6 months... Wait, wow, that's just crazy! I have other friends that have children, but with this one I almost feel like it is the end of an era. Our lives are headed in different directions now and will never entirely be the same again. I am positive that I will never have children, but it doesn't mean I don't worry about how things will be when all my friends are parents and I am still not. Anyway, sorry about the strange direction my post has taken. Also, sorry Vanessa that this paragraph became about me instead of you. I am very happy for you and wish you all the best! And, the cc knows all about babies, so at least when we visit only one of us will be clueless!
I am very happy to see that Eva is back and blogging. Plus, she got a puppy! (I'm jealous! I want a puppy!) I am mostly just very happy that she is back around. It's been weird in the blogosphere without her for 6 weeks. Judging by the comments I have seen, she has been missed by all! Rightly so. :)
Speaking of jealous, did you see the pictures from Ana's trip to Ireland? I would love to go on a trip... Preferably to somewhere they don't know what snow is... Thankfully, we have had mild winter and maybe, just maybe, spring is here. Anything that means I don't have to shovel again for a few months...
I was tempted to say 'speaking of trips', but I am getting a bit redundant here. All I was going to say is that I am hoping that Chris is enjoying his trip. If my time zones are right he should be there by now!
Coming up on the blog, there will be buddy reviews with Darren from Bart's Bookshelf and Heather from A Capricious Reader. Very exciting stuff! With Darren it will be Plain Kate and with Heather it is Tender Morsels. I am very happy to be able to write a positive review of a book Ana suggested for me this time. Stay tuned for that! If I can stay away from Netflix for long enough there will be a couple more buddy reviews in the not so distant future. On that note, I am going to go read!
On the subject of buddy reads, don't forget that before the year is out you have to finally do one with me, Debi. I haven't forgotten!
hm, that reminds me that I have to buy Among Others because I found someone to buddy read it with, and, well, need the book to read it... That's my story and I am sticking to it!
And, yes, I ramble like this in real life, too.
