Funny how sometimes this thing called life gets in your way and keeps you from reading as much as you would like too. As much as I am enjoying my current book and my audiobook I just haven't been able to give them as much time as I would like. I hope to finish The Blind Assassin tonight or tomorrow. I'm almost finished with my audio book as well.
I managed to cross off one of my three reviews. It was the negative review for The House of the Spirits. You can read it here if you would like.
I did spend some time working/lurking on Weekly Geeks this weeks even though I didn't really post a lot about it. The challenge was to link to anyone who has written a review for a book that you have reviewed as well. I went off hunting and considering how many books get read around here I found very few people and I shared books we had reviewed. I think only one person has contacted me about linking up. It felt like a wild goose chase with very little reward. Hopefully people will read the little note I'm putting on the bottom of all future reviews and will contact me if they have reviewed the book.
Hopefully I can get a little more reading done in the upcoming week.
The Blind Assassin: Margaret Atwood. Still. I'm really enjoying it, I just don't seem to have time to sit down and read. I'm on page 355 of 521. I should cut myself some slack. It is a pretty long book. The plot has thickened so to speak and I'm more interested in the characters and what is going on. I'm trying to "guess" to see if I've figured it out, but then I get a piece of info here and there that makes me change my mind. To me this guessing makes a good story.
CURRENTLY LISTENING TO:
The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum. This is a continuation of the Oz series that features the Scarecrow and the Tinman. I had not read the book so this is my first go around with this story. I feel like a kid listening to this story. I have it on my iPod and often catch myself just sitting and grinning as I'm listening to it. Good thing I only listen to it when I'm alone. I probably look very silly.
