Since my last update:
It was another less than spectacular reading week for me. I was busy many evenings and also busy enough at work that lunchtimes were short. All of that meant less than optimal reading time for me which makes me cranky.
I did end up starting The Tilted World by Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly. I've only read the first couple of chapters so far but I’m hooked.
On audio I’m listening to The Golden One by Elizabeth Peters. I don’t often binge read authors or series but I’m planning on continuing and finishing the last few books in the Amelia Peabody series back to back. I just enjoy them so much,
My October Graphic Novel Reading Binge continues.
I’m caught up with the SAGA series by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples and will be waiting for issue #15 to be available.
I plan to read more of the series High Crimes by Christopher Sebela and Ibrahim Moustafa The first issue began near the summit of Mt. Everest and at the end had introduced some characters and situation that have me quite curious about what happens next in this thriller series.
I read the first in the Runaways series by Brian K. Vaughan. He is definitely one of my favorite comic writers. I enjoyed the first one in the series (Pride & Joy) enough that I've picked up the next two in the series from the library already.
I’m partway through the 6th book in the Fables series. I hope to finish Homelands today. The Hubster is in the middle of the 5th book in the series so I need to finish Homelands so I can pass it along to him.
I've got several other graphic novels out from the library and if this week works out to have more reading time than last week I’ll be much less cranky.
Other than books and reading:
Yesterday was all football all day at our house. Oregon played at Washington and we had friends over to watch the game.
I made The Pioneer Woman’s Baked Ziti for lunch and it was delicious. It was also enough for lunch and then again for dinner later. After the Oregon game we just continued to watch football the rest of the afternoon and evening. It was a fun day with good friends, good food and lots of football.
A few random photos from my week:
I headed out to the library earlier this week expecting it to be a dash in and out trip because of the rainy weather but just about the time I got there the sun came out and I ended up taking a nice walk around the neighborhood before I went home.
I did manage to get some catch up time on my various cataloging tasks.
First the books needed to be added to my Library Thing account and my tracking spreadsheets.
This piece of sidewalk art is in front of a cupcake shop. It just made me smile.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
