farewell and goodbye

to my oh-so-sweet staycation!  Seriously, if you haven't tried this I highly recommend it.  No luggage, no reservations, no gas stations, no cheap takeout (well, maybe a little...), no piles of laundry other that the various pj's I've worn over the past 7 days

listen closely....that, my dear readers, is the sound of contentment :)  Plus, about 30 minutes ago I surpased my goal of reading 7 books in 7 days to 8 books in 7, I began 10 books but two of them I had to abandon after a few chapters as they were failing to hold my interest and I've made a vow to myself that I will no longer finish any books that I'm not enjoying.  Here's a list!

The Walking Dead: Book 2  by Robert Kirkman, et al
A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin
Black Powder War by Naomi Novik
Old Man's War by John Scalzi
Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain
Let Me In by John Ajvide Lindquist
Total Chaos by Jean-Claude Izzo

Now my head is literally bursting with all sorts of fun, disturbing, interesting and horrifying things and I am happy again!

How many books now sit on the 'to read' shelf? We must do Mexican soon!

According to my Shelfari account, about 70 :) If you figure in the yet-to-be-published books that I could potentially want to read....I don't have access to that kind of math :)

Sounds like a section of Heaven. I just finished reading "I am Legend" - excellent, 50-s style horror shorts. Just started "The Road". It seems like it's going to be a very easy, but intense read, so I'm trying to read it slowly. Movie coming out in -09 starring Viggo Mortensen.
