Book Worm....

...so those of you who know me well know that I'm a hopeless book worm....although I'm a relatively slow reader, I do love me a good book..... So... here comes another bullet list, brought to you by yours truly....

  • The Other Boleyn Girl, by Phillipa Gregory
  • The Constant Princess, by Phillipa Gregory
  • The Boleyn Inheritance, by Phillipa Gregory (It might be Phillippa or Philippa, but I can't remember... and yes...I tend to be a creature of habit and read all I can by one author before going on to the next.
  • Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer... even if you don't like the thought of vampires and werewolves, this is a good series. Not scary, not vulgar by any means. Just good reading...think Harry Potter vampire style, maybe? Good clean fun....
  • New Moon, by Stephenie Meyer (if you wound up liking the first one. I do know of a manly man who read this lately, who stated that it was just too girlie for him....)
  • Pendragon series, by DJ MacHale....this is another one of those crack-type book series. It's about a group called the Travelers, who can travel through time and space in order to save the common good. I do believe that these are a little less easy to read than the Stephenie Meyer books.
  • The Percy Jackson series, by Rick Riordon....this is a series about kids who are half-breeds between humans and Greek gods. Is more interesting than I can describe.
  • The Eragon series by Christopher Paolini.....The third book just came out!

Now...my bullet list will come also with a bitch and a moan....no surprise at all for those of you who know me well.... I tend to do that a lot. So what's my big hairy deal? ALL of the series that I'm reading have new books and ALL of the brand new books of the series are in HARDCOVER ONLY! Sucks, bro! The good news behind all of this is that the series are really YOUNG ADULT books (shuddup, you all...they don't have pictures or anything...), so they tend to run a bit cheaper. But I don't like to hold hard cover books....

And my final bitch and moan for the evening before I get back to work is that I ordered a couple of books on Amazon on September 14th. One of them was a pre-order that wasn't due out until the 20th of September. So, I would have thought it would have shipped last week, right? Wrong. It's not supposed to ship out until today or sometime until the FOURTEENTH of October! WTF? Am so sad not to have my book. But that's ok, Collin snagged the 8th Pendragon book for me from the library at school (I do so love that boy!), so I am not without reading material.....

So yes, folks...that's all my life revolves around right now. Karate and reading. There are other things, too, but do you really want to know whether I've shrunk my newest gi in the laundry? Or that I finally got all my clothes folded and put away? There are so many more interesting things to talk about! Oh, Oh, Oh! I shall not forget that I had a loverly time on Sunday afternoon....after my nap outside, that is. I went to Uno's with Rebecca and Stephenie to make good on my birthday present of taking Rebecca (I know, I know...her birthday's in JULY... I do so suck as a humann being!) to dinner. And we had some yummy yummy food. Sans kids. And it was so very nice. I do not get to hang out with them enough.

You should read the Song of Albion Trilogy by Stephen R. Lawhead. The three books in the series are The Paradise War, The Silver Hand, and The Endless Knot. Believe me, you won't be sorry. They are truly at the top of my favorite books list....and I've read A LOT of books.

When I was at Barnes and Noble a while back I was looking in the kids section for some books Seth wanted. theyw ere all hardback. I asked the sales lady and she said some book authors only like their children's books to be in hard back and they may never come out in soft issue. WTF? Hard backs are expensive as childrens books and it denies my child books as I do not like hard cover prices. I thought it all to be unfair and cruel, especially for children whose parents truly are poor or on a tight budget.
