What is your opinion on Read-a-Thons? Are they just extra work? Or are you inspired to get a bunch of reading done?! Since I hardly need inspiration to read more, I don't feel like I took advantage of whatever I was supposed to gain extra. Just thinking.
Regardless, I clicked the linky to sign up and I thought about it all week, so that counts for something!! (Was I supposed to do more? Bother.)
I did read How To Survive in a Science Fictional Universe. My review goes up tomorrow along with Calico Reaction. :-) Yay!!
I also read Goddess Interrupted, which I finally wrote my review of... in two parts. I will post the Spoiler-Free version on Thursday. The rantingest spoiler-filled one can wait 'til after the book is published, don't you think?
I am half-way into Midnight in Austenland... and I have another quote tidbit (or two) for you, which goes right along with Teaser Tuesday nicely....
His whole attention seemed directed toward her, but a slight fidget made her wonder if he wasn't dying to get back to his table. Maybe he lived for a neat place setting, she considered. Maybe if she gave tidy tableware a fair shot, her life would be complete.
Pg 130You do know that MIDNIGHT IN AUSTENLAND is available today, right?! It's out!!!! I totally want to give one away with my review... and I was supposed to by done by today, but here I am writing again instead of reading. It's a problem of mine. I'm working on it!!! So... instead, I share tidbits as I enjoy the book and if you still haven't bought it by the time I'm done, we'll see. To entice you further, I'll give you a one click to buy button:
Charlotte found herself with Colonel Andrews on a settee. Charlotte had never used that word before - "settee." But in Austenland, settees were prolific. There seemed to be a virtual warren of them in the house, reproducing like bunnies.
Next I need to wrap up all those Challenges it was so easy to sign up for. I need to figure out what I actually read in January and which challenges I can file each book under. I am rolling my eyes. It is seriously much too easy to join up on these things... easier than it is to report about 'em!!
(Any hints out there?! How do you keep yourself organized?!?!)
