Most of you are probably busy wrapping p Bloggiesta. I admit–I didn’t do one thing for my blog this weekend except write this post. It’s just that I suck when it comes to blogs and technology and stuff. I spend very little time on my blog and I doubt that will change anytime soon because even after almost a year, I al severly deficient in blogging “skills”. I did get my Google Reader all sorted out and I am all caught up. I vow to do much better with comments–I had been slacking recently but I will not let that happen again. So, you see–the weekend was not an entire waste!
So . . . I got my new issue of Bookmarks Friday! (If you don’t susbribe you should!! Your TBR pile will hate you but it is a book lover’s crack). I came home from work to find it in my mailbox. Suffice it to say I was in a trance by the time my husband got home twenty minutes later. I know have even more books on hold from the library!
Red Hook Road, by Ayelet Waldman
Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper, Harriet Scott Chessman
Every Last One, Anna Quindlen
Private Life, Jane Smiley
Imperfect Birds, Anne Lamott
Presumed Innocent, Scott Turow
A Ticket to the Circus, Norris Mailer
Last Call, Daniel Okrent
This issue had a large crime section which had me super excited–I have been fiending for good mysteries. Unfirtunately, none of the books really drew me in, except the Scott Turow book–I have seen his books around a lot lately so I thought I’d give this one a try. What caught your eye in this month’s Bookmarks?
This week was ok for my reading–nothing special. I finished both Ruby Fruit Jungle, by Rita Mae Brown and What the Dead Know, by Laura Lippman. They were both good but the latter was outstanding. Have any of you read anything else by Lippman? Her other books don’t pique my interest–none of the summaries really made me want to read more. I am now reading The Dress Lodger, by Sheri Holman and I hope to finish it by the time the weekend is through. It is fantastic–historical fiction at its finest.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. I have too much to do and not enough time so we’ll see if I am able to get any reading done!
