Why did I do it???

I'm crazy. I know this. My family all knows this. My friends know this (most are too kind to actually say it).

I was loitering around FB and saw a post by a friend from high school about a new book club that is starting up. It's for the Classics and they are starting with The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I think that last year they released a movie based on the book, I haven't seen it - but it put the book on my radar screen as something I was interested in. I don't know if I've actually read the book, or if I just know a lot about it from pieces of info picked up here and there. I know several people who are in the group and I don't want to miss out - So I joined.

I know. I know! I wasn't going to! I mean, it's not like I have the book sitting on my shelf. Oh, wait - I have a kindle ... and most of the classics are free downloads..... Yep, got it.

Now, I'm also reading The Girl Who Played with Fire and have another book in that series still. Then a friend lent me The Hunger Games and I really want to get into that series. I'm also currently doing 31 days to clean which is kind of like a bible study mixed into a cleaning guide for your house. Oh, and I'm reading the Prairie Girl's Guide to life, a book on art journaling, countless blogs and fanfiction. My head is soon to explode. I don't have any problems skipping from book to book and am able to pick right up where I left off - so it doesn't bother me to have more than a few books going at a time. But even I must admit - this is getting a little crazy.

So, what are you reading?

Is it any good? Can I borrow it?  ..... help me, I can't stop......


  1. I am not a reader. I think I read only Catcher in the Rye in H.S. Ever since Twilight I have tried to get into reading. I can't read till the kids are in bed and usually by then I'm too tired. Then I changed my diet and now have something called energy! Then I learned how to reserve books at the library! They are never at my local branch so I have them transferred. I've been reading tons of Celiac and Paleo books. My next fiction book besides H.P. Azakban is Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Why not combine two of my interests: history and vampires. Then I need to read Pride & Prejudice so I can read P&P& Zombies by the same author of Vampire Hunter. They are both going to be made into movies.

  2. Those sound great!! Be sure and let me know what you think of them... because I'm always looking for books I'll probably never get around to reading!! :0)
