I'm still reading The Left Hand of Darkness and feeling very impatient with the book and my reading progress this month. Hopefully I'll finish the book by Friday, but that will make 4 (mostly short) reads for February. And that's fine. I'm just impatient. Ha! Ohhh, and I don't even want to get started on my progress on Eragon (audiobook). I'm on disc 5/14. Bleh.
But in other booking news, I received two books this week! Joy was so kind to send me a copy of 'Tis after reading my review of Angela's Ashes a few weeks ago. I was so excited to receive the book! And then, I also received my prize book, Half of a Yellow Sun, from Michelle for the Decades Challenge. Thank you so much ladies for making my week!!In addition to those books, I also discovered some abandoned books in my in-laws storage. We were putting some equipment in the shop a few weeks ago and there in the dust and dirt and who-knows what else was a collection of Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. I already have a pretty nice set of Dickens, so I asked hubby to hint to mom-in-law that if the books are just going to waste away in the shop and be eaten by silverfish, I would be happy to give the books a home. Hubby was down in Coleman a few days later and brought me back ALL of the books. Not sure what I'll do with the Dickens yet, but I'm thrilled with the Mark Twain set (all in all its a medium U-Haul box two-thirds full of books!!). Hmmm...need a new bookshelf. :)
And finally, I discovered Google Reader this week. Where the heck have I been??? I love reading everyone's blog, but sometimes I get bogged down with life and find it difficult to keep up. But, now all I have to do is look at my Google Reader and see who has new posts! I'm not sure if I'm any quicker at reading everything, but I feel so much more in the know. Ha ha! I guess it's the little things. Thanks Google, for making my life so much easier!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
