It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 05/03/2010


(meme from Book Journey)

You know, I think I'm just going to do this kind of meme instead of bothering with the mailbox or library loot meme. It just feels more productive, and for any POC titles I want to highlight, I'll just contribute to the New Crayons memes over at Color Online. I don't particularly feel enthused about sharing the library books I borrow, especially since I don't tend to finish half of them (because I'm less concerned with whether or not I'll like the book and more concerned with how much I can stuff into my bag, so with my luck I always pick out a lot of duds. Pretty covers don't always mean good novels, and yet I never learn my lesson...) I dunno, for me, I just prefer laying out what books I'm currently reading, as opposed to showing off my latest purchases or loot from the latest library trip. Unless I get wicked deals for bargain prices for over 10+ books, then I'll make an exception. So! long story short, ITWAYR memes will be replacing the IMMs for the most part. Also this meme makes me feel sort of organized! I rarely get this feeling

I can't wait for you to read Nick Burd's VAST FIELDS OF ORDINARY. What an amazing novel! When you're done, you may want to read my interview with Nick, but only after you're done :) http://bit.ly/cUR63q

@Helen,

lol, reading too many books simultaneously is one of my many ongoing vices... but I read pretty quickly, so usually this all works out. 8D Do read Before I Fall, it's a most excellent novel!
