Time (Eventually)

March 30, 2007

This morning I bought a ticket to see Anne Lamott , an author I love, speak on April 28 at the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.¬†She has a new book out called Grace (Eventually), a collection of essays of her thoughts on faith. I was of course planning on reading the book sometime, but now I feel like I need to read it before I see her speak. Sooo, I’m going to have to step it up on my reading regimen. Although I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to manage that with my classes simultaneously stepping up their assignment regimens. I just might go a little crazy this next month. I am counting down the days (35!) until the end…

Book Review: The Stranger Beside Me by Anne Rule

March 26, 2007

A couple of months ago, my boyfriend David and I decided to start our own little book club of sorts and recommend books we had read to each other. We would then read them and discuss. The book I recommended to him was The Hot Zone by Richard Preston, the true story of a near-outbreak of an ebola-type virus in the U.S. When I suggested it, I forgot that he’s one of those types of people who take on or become paranoid about all of the symptoms that he reads about or comes into contact with. For example, the other day I had some side-effects from the bird flu vaccine and when I described them to him the first thing…

My Spring Reading List

March 21, 2007

Well, here it is, my reading intentions for this spring! I have started a couple of them, and many of the rest are books that I’ve had for awhile but haven’t read. This is a little intimidating, but I guess that’s why it’s a challenge! Nonfiction: Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule The Secret Life of Houdini by William Kalush and Larry Sloman Fiction: The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol Christian: Girl Meets God by Lauren Winner Journey of Desire by John Eldredge A few of these books have quite a lot of pages within their covers, and on top of book club books I’m not sure…

Spring Reading Thing!

March 10, 2007

Whenever I get the chance I try to search around the worldwide web for new blogs that I might enjoy reading. There is a whole huge blogging world out there and it is kind of intimidating, but fun. I haven’t yet gotten too extremely involved in that world because I believe it can become quite time-consuming, and I already have a lot going on. But then I came across this:   A blogger named Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a spring reading challenge, and this is just my kind of thing. So I am going to participate, and you are invited also! All you do is make a list of books that you want to read between March 21…
