[TSS] One dark and stormy…morning?

November 1, 2009

The Sunday

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is still raining in Atlanta.

I know, I know, I’m asking myself the same question: how on earth could the sky physically still drop moisture?

I’ll tell you.

I don’t know.

One part of me, the mom, the dog-owner, the runner, the person who needs her daily dose of vitamin D, is screaming on the inside. That person needs for the clouds to go along their less than merry way. The reader in me, however, the romantic, the tea drinker, the fire-side sitter, has reveled in the sogginess the past few months. Today, for example, I will probably end up reading a good bit more than I would have had it been a field-romping, sunshine-filled day.

So, while my spirit my be suffering under your oppressive dampness, dear mother nature, my TBR stack loves you.

Speaking of which, I need to say a word or two about the TBR. I hate it. My taste changes so often and so radically that I can’;t buy books anymore if I’m not reading them that afternoon. I do fairly well with library books because I have some sort of urgency and timeline to get them back to the library within three weeks but I just can’t focus on the lists that I have given myself of books to read. Here’s how my list stands, right now:photo(11)

As for last week, I seem to be stuck at three books a week.

The Forrest of Hands and Teeth was a big disappointment, Envy was less so and of course, Dolye’s Study in Scarlet was fantastic.

That’s about it. I can’t believe I managed to get through the whole post without mentioning baseball once. I suppose I should hold my tongue, although, I may make a mid-week rant post if a certain team get their 27th World Series ring…

    I think 3 books a week is terrific. I find that if I read too fast, I forget more easily, and lose some of the joy that came with the book. I like time to digest it. I for one applaud your pace!

    Hmmmm. I’ve been wondering if I should read Forest of Hands and Teeth. Seems like it’s getting really mixed reviews.
