What I am Reading Now...

Well, I am still working on The Falls, I am hoping to finish that up this weekend.

I finally finished The Penelopiad while I was on vacation. I don't really know what to say about this book, it was an interesting look into what could have been Penelope's side of the Odyssey. If you have read the Odyssey, you may want to check this out.

My new purse book is War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells, I've seen the movie and already know the premise of the story, of course I knew the premise even before I saw the movie, I think most people already do. I figured for $5.00 I'd buy it and throw it in my purse and get around to reading it eventually.

What I am Reading Update...

I finished The Book of Ruth and then went right on to reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy, this is Oprah's latest pick and was a pretty quick read. I found the writing style a little strange at first, but got over it... I really couldn't stand the lack of apostrophes, I didn't exactly get over that bit, however it did not take away from the story. I was puzzled by the book's end and sort of wished that it went a little further, I suppose that is the sign of a great book, if it keeps you wanting more. I have already passed this on to a co-worker and I suspect that he will already have it back to me by tomorrow. I am now currently reading The Falls by Joyce Carol Oates, this book is close to 500 pages and I am currently 60 in, so this may take a while. I have read We Were the Mulvaneys by Oates as it was an Oprah pick back in 2001. As with many Oprah pick authors, I decided to give the author another try and so far I am not disappointed with this choice.

I still have The Penelopiad in my purse, still with little opportunity to actually crack open my purse book, it is slowly being read. Perhaps I will complete this book on my next Disney trip, which is quickly approaching.

Quick Book Update

As I suspected, I finished For One More Day very quickly, I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

I am currently working on The Book of Ruth, this is another Oprah pick, I am more than half way through and it's okay. There are spots that I find a bit slow but I totally feel for Ruth and am glad that I'm not her. Just picturing her husband makes me feel sick.

I am still working on The Penelopiad, the opportunity that I thought I had to get through the rest of the book did not present itself, so the book just waits in my purse for me to eventually get around to looking at it again.

Baby Sister Turns 18... Almost

My little sis, Laur, will be turning 18 tomorrow and I can hardly believe it. Where has the time gone? Since there is no longer grade 13 (shows how old I am) , she will also be graduating from high school this year.

Happy Birthday Sis!

Love ya! xoxo

What I'm Reading Now...

I finished reading The Measure of a Man on Friday night and moved on to For One More Day by Mitch Albom. I have spent very little time reading this and I am already a third of the way through. I found that I was able to read Albom's other offerings, Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, just as quickly. They are all good stories that often bring tears.

I am almost certain that I will be finished For One More Day and The Penelopiad by the end of this coming weekend. More news to come on what's next on my reading list.

It has been about a month and a half since I last posted. I have had the opportunity to post but just didn't feel like it, sorry.

I finished reading The Corrections and am currently reading The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier. The Measure of a Man is Oprah's latest pick and I am little over a third of the way through it, this is an interesting look into the life of an incredible man. I am about half way through The Penelopiad, I haven't recently required my purse book but I manage to get a page in every now and then.

I recently had a Pampered Chef party, I am looking forward to the delivery... now I just need to find a place to put my new stuff... ah, a citrus peeler, I am soooo looking forward to that. :)

I have recently become obsessed with completing my Best Picture collection of DVDs. I owe this all to a trip to Future Shop which had a bunch of Best Pictures on display and on sale. I think I am about half way through, there are a few movies that I am not currently able to locate so I will focus on what I can get for now and work on the rest later.

Yesterday I booked my next Disney vacation. This time I will be going with my brother and sister and we will be hanging out with my friend Julie and her family. We will be staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge, this is mostly due to the bunk beds, it is worth the extra money for everyone to have their own bed. :) Julie and her family will be staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort, I have not stayed there yet, maybe next time. :)

That's about all that is new and exciting for now.
