I've been a little absent this week from commenting and I apologize! I had to go to Tampa (a couple hours from here) for work from Wednesday through Friday and even though it didn't seem like that long of a time, I didn't get much of a chance to go through my google reader. =( So the number of unread posts has been over 1000 for a while now! I'm trying to catch up but it's going slow.
My reading ADD is still in effect... I'll even get over 150 pages through a book and decide I want to start something else. I'm really into the book I'm reading right now though (yes, the Patches of Gray book that is listed as my current read on my page is on a short hiatus) so I should finish it soon. And the book I'm really into right now is one I borrowed on my nook from The Lend Me Library... seriously, if you have a nook, check it out! We need more titles to choose from over there and it's a great place to share the books you've read on your nook. I probably wouldn't have started reading what I'm reading right now if it weren't for that, but I really wanted to try out the lend me feature; I really like it!
I also got another book in the mail today that I am soooooo excited about!! I requested it for review because if I like it, it will go perfectly on my New York shelf... the book is Brooklyn Story by Suzanne Corso. Apparently it's the beginning of a trilogy and is already being made into a movie. Anyway, it doesn't come out until the end of December so I won't be reviewing it on here until closer to then, but I hope to read it soon! And I absolutely loooove the cover!
I'm contemplating joining another challenge... I don't know why because I never complete any challenges... I even removed the page of challenges from my blog, but I still sometimes want to join more. The one I'm thinking of is the World Party Reading Challenge hosted by Suzi at Packabook (taken over from Jill at Fizzy Thoughts). So, while this isn't my official "I'm joining" post, I'm highly contemplating it. Are any of you joining it?
I did actually join a read-a-long, though, hosted by Jill at Fizzy Thoughts: Dueling Monsters, Round 2. We will be reading The Picture of Dorian Gray, while Heather's group at Age 30+... A Lifetime of Books will be reading The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. I've been very interested in the Dorian Gray book for a while so I'm looking forward to reading that. I'd read both but I don't think I'll have time.
In non-book news, my husband and I went and checked out our new Amway Center today, the home of our Orlando Magic, at their community open house. I think everyone is really excited about this new season. We were able to get a partial plan this year (15 games) and found our seats today which are awesome (for being on the second level)! We're so excited!!
And that's about it for today! Have a great week!
