I'm Back!

Okay, so I was only gone for two days, but I am so behind on everything all ready that it is crazy! You people post too much, you know! Anyway, did I miss anything exciting? I am very happy that the funeral is over with. It was family-overload, that's for sure! It's sad, but I probably only see a lot of those people at funerals... I also had to do a reading and I managed to get through it without coughing! I was very impressed with myself and people said that I read really well, so hopefully that was true...

As to the book front. I have only read one book so far this month... After I finish this post I am hoping to have a 'reading evening', but we will see how that works out. I had to thin out my library books because I haven't finished one in like a week. I'll just have to take them out again when the library pile gets smaller. I didn't have time to go to the library on Monday, but I do have books waiting for me that I am very excited about:

Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken - Rather strangely the charming comedian thinks I should read this... Since he isn't one for book recommendations, I decided to give it a read!

Evernight by Claudia Gray - I have see lots of reviews of this book. Not sure who is really to blame!

Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson - I have wanted to read this since it came out...

Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce - Nymeth gets a point.

Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street by Michael Davis - Okay, so I was curious! The library bought this book for me, too, so I am going to be the first person to read it...

Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson - Nymeth. I have wanted to read this book for a while and she chose it as one of her books for the Herding Cats challenge.

The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi - Carry on with the series...

The Plain Janes by Cecil Castellucci - I can't remember where I heard about this.

Fruits Basket - Volume 5 - Carry on with the series.

Robot Dreams by Sara Varon - Robin just recently reviewed this.

Chobits Volume 5 - Carry on with the series.

One Piece Volume 3 - Carry on with the series.

An Anthropolgist on Mars by Oliver Sacks - Another point for Nymeth.

Ahem, normally books come in on Monday and Thursday, but I guess books came in today! I didn't check the website all day, so I went on expecting only five books and, well, that's way more than five!


  1. I like how Nymeth is up to 13 points as a bad blogger! lol and I'm very sorry to hear about the funeral you attended, my sympathies to you, and a hug.

  2. Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken

    I read this book and saw the movie made from it long long long ago.. it had a profound effect that has never left me.

    It surely has to be read with a very open mind. von Daniken proposes a theory.. and state more than once "it's a theory".. it's a "what if"..

    In the big scheme of things I find it worth pondering over time and again... after all, aren't all things possible?

    I don't know anyone who actually read this book so I will be VERY curious to your take on it.

  3. p.s. so.. does the charming comedian get a point??? :O)

  4. I kind of want to read Chariots of the Gods just because it's so Stargate-ish :P

    Monkey Beach! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Oh, and I just finished An Anthropologist on Mars good!

  5. Susan: Yes, Nymeth is doing good in the points category!

    Deslily: I am glad you have read it, too! I will try to read it soonish! lol. I guess he does get a point, huh?

    Nymeth: I hope it is good. I have wanted to read it for a long time! Monkey Beach and An Anthropologist on Mars both sound good, too.

  6. Okay, perhaps I just cannot read, but I am not seeing any mention of who passed away. I certainly express my condolences, however.

  7. Carl: Thanks! My great-grandmother passed away. I had mentioned it on a previous post, but I should have mentioned it again!
