Recent Reads

I'm still trying to make my way through The Zombie Survival Guide. I don't know why it isn't holding my interest, because it's actually a fun book. Maybe it's the similarity to non-fiction?

In the meantime, I finished Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Surprisingly good. A bit silly here and there, but at no time did I feel the urge to throw the volume across the room, nor to bang my head against the headboard in frustration. I'm seriously considering getting the prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls.

After that, I read The Alchemist. This is one of those books everyone seems to have read, and also something I thought I'd read already. Apparently not. Twin1 saw me with it, says, "that's a good book." Which leaves me wondering how I missed that he'd read it. Very good read, definitely worth owning. The sort of book I'll read again.

I tried to settle back into Zombie Survival, but it couldn't compete with the newly purchased copy of Marley & Me starting at me from the other side of the bed. That cute puppy face won out. I'm about 1/3 of the way through, and loving it.

Yesterday, just as I was about to leave work, I got the email telling me Major Pettigrew's Last Stand was waiting for me at the library. I could not resist. I know it's mine until June 8, but I couldn't help it, I opened it last night.

I used to be a one-book-at-a-time gal. Not sure what happened.

okay, and now my eyes are sore and tired, too. I try to make it a rule to devote my time to only one book, but sometimes that doesn't happen. you have a sharp mind and probably won't accidentally weave story lines and characters together and such (i do that--- I can even mix up self-help books and novels. yes, I am that foggy in brain!). Enjoy yourself. I love a good escape.
