Or, what has now become
I’m feeling like maybe the slump is winding down, since I picked up Yann Martel’s new book Beatrice and Virgil (since I got 2 unsolicited copies, I thought maybe someone was trying to tell me something!) and sat down, only to get up after having read 50 pages. Fingers crossed peoples!!
The real test? Picking it back UP!
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter; The Complete Poems of Christina Rossetti (because I want to read Goblin Market for OUaT IV); Doors Open by Ian Rankin (Reagan Arthur Challenge); Goodbye Chunky Rice (Graphic Novel Challenge); Lips Touch, Three Times (OUaT IV); Many and Many Times Ago by Selcuk Altun (honestly, I picked it up on a whim! but it sounds good!); Next by James Hynes (Reagan Arthur); The Sky is Everywhere and Time of My Life (because of raves by some of my favorite authors).
Still sitting at home, unread
Um, let’s see…I didn’t keep very many. When I get in a slump, I sometimes have to get ruthless. If the book is not working it is thrown against the wall and then…no, I’m kidding. If it’s not working, I put it down and pick up another. I kept Crossing Stones by Helen Frost. Cutting for Stone because I haven’t saved it to iTunes yet. Because it is 24 HOURS LONG people!!! Veracity because I haven’t glimpsed at it either. Smile, because I, oh you get the idea. And Num8ers. For the same reason. And Gone by Michael Grant. Same reason!
Go ahead, shake your head in disgust. I am!
Anyone up for a library book readathon? I think I need one.
Returned to the library, unread
I picked up all of these and they didn’t work. So I went ahead and took them back. I expect I will get the back, sooner or later.
Once Upon a Witch, Apple of my Eye, Going Bovine (only because I have the audio now!), The Postmistress, Prima Donna, and Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven.
What I managed to read
Because I feel like celebrating it! I read a library book! And it was good!
