I did finish–and promptly post–both To Dream of Snow and O the Red Rose Tree, as promised. And caught up on all my unposted books, putting me in the black. But I did not finish anything else! Since putting down Within a Hollow Crown and Everything is Illuminated, I haven’t picked them back up. I have been steadily making my way through When Christ and His Saints Slept, but am only on page 529 out of 746. That’s pitiful progress!
My only excuse is that I did start a class this week, and have been boning up on my German (it being a year since I used it at all). I’ve also been doing some wedding planning while at work (somewhere I usually get a lot of reading done), and reading the Julie/Julia Project from start to finish. (Both Eli and I would like to see the movie.) I also experienced a serious yen for some VC Andrews, but found nothing at Goodwill but a bedraggled copy of If There Be Thorns. Wtf, Goodwill? (I did, however, find the other two books in the Shadowrun: Secrets of Power trilogy, and picked those up, as well as lovely copies of The Return of Tarzan and Moonraker.)
This week, I promise to finish When Christ and His Saints Slept! I will also pick up those books I put down! And since today marked the arrival of two trashy books, I will make sure to thoroughly enjoy those as well!
