Currently In May

May 1, 2010

Current Book(s): Way too many. I was in between book club books, so I thought I’d quickly read The Jane Austen Book Club. The first chapter was about Emma, which I had just finished, and when I got to the second chapter and saw that it was on Sense and Sensibility I decided I wanted to read that first. So I got my huge Jane Austen anthology back out and made it through the first few chapters, but then I needed something smaller to carry around with me. That’s when I picked up The Well at the End of the World by William Morris which was recommended to me by my brother-in-law. I made it through several chapters before the…

Current Book(s): I am working my way through Emma by Jane Austen. I absolutely love Austen, but she’s not exactly a quick read. I make it harder on myself because the copy I have is in a huge anthology of allĀ her novels, which is obviously not travel-ready. In conclusion, I have been slacking off on reading lately and someone needs to kick me into gear. Current Playlist: It’s been awhile since I’ve really listened to music of any kind. How boring is that? Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Lately for my chocolate kick I’ve been eating dark chocolate fudge icing straight from the tub, with my fingers. I get it all over my hands and face like a toddler. I really…

Currently In March

March 1, 2010

Even though February is my birthday month, I still love March. Maybe because the number 3 is my favorite number, or because in Houston spring is usually on its way (although that’s not the case right now). Anyway, I’m glad March is here. Current Book(s): I’m working on several at the moment. My main fiction book that I’m reading is The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. It’s on the Rory Gilmore reading list, and I’ve heard good things about it. I’m only a few chapters in, and though at times it is a little over-descriptive for my taste, I have a feeling I’m really going to like these characters. In addition, I started reading Fearless by Max Lucado…

Currently In February

February 3, 2010

Current Book(s): Just finished my book club book a few days ago and the next meeting isn’t until next week, so I picked up The Poe Shadow by Matthew Pearl off my “unread” shelf. My husband also got me The Wonder Spot by Michelle Bank to listen to while I drive. I like it so far, although it’s read by the author which I don’t think is a good idea. Her voice really annoys me. Current Playlist: I finally went through all of my recovered files from when my hard drive crashed, and it’s like I have a whole new music library now. I discovered some classics that I forgot I had such as Ace of Base, ‘N Sync, and…

Here we go, 2010! Treat us right, will you? Current Book(s): FYI, for those of you who read my posts in an RSS feed reader, I keep the top of my sidebar updated with what I’m currently reading. But if you’re too lazy to click through, right now I’m reading A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick for my book club. I’m also listening to Wicked on audiobook in my car. Current Playlist: I made a playlist of upbeat music for running, but it serves a double purpose of being good to listen to on long drives when I’m trying to stay awake. A sampling: “We Didn’t Start The Fire” by Billy Joel “Marvelous Light” by Christy Nockels “Already Gone” by…
