  1. Seven books read in one week is admirable. Bear-ology sounds fascinating, I'd love to know what you thought of it.

  2. I enjoyed Black Hills, you had a great week. Hope you have another. I also have heaps of library books that I really need to get too.

  3. Good luck with the class reading. You'll have fun with the Evanovich books : )

  4. Sandra - 3 of them were children's picture books, but since I didn't really get to much reading (despite my best efforts) until Thursday evening, I'm satisfied.

    Alaine - I liked Black Hills...I'm still deciding whether I'll review it here.

    May I ask what libraries you use? When I was in Brisbane I lived in Coopers Plains, used the library there and the Garden City branch. I found some new and good books, but I had issues finding seating in either of them.

    Mary - Thanks. I'm looking forward to them...I planned to read them Saturday, but that obviously didn't happen.

  5. WOW, quite a list both last week and this week. My sons loved Eragon.


  6. What an awesome week you had, and a nice-line up of books to come.

    Have you tried Nora Roberts' Vision in White, the 2nd one Bed of Roses is out tomorrow I think.

    Alaine and I both use the Garden City Library and Mt Gravatt and occasionally Carindale. Garden City is good for seating now. How long ago did you live in Brissy?

  7. Jennifer - that's good to hear. I saw a small part of the movie and I've been hesitant to try the books since.

    Teddyree - I haven't tried them yet. I'm kinda behind on her series. I still haven't read the Circle trilogy, or the Sign of Seven books either.

    February - June of 2005. I was attending Griffith for a semester. I'm glad to hear the seating is better now. At the time, I would read at home or (since I was renting a house with several others and there are times you just want to get away) going to the Borders to read instead (they have those comfy black chairs).

  8. Great reading week for you. I started on Black Hills and was really enjoying it, but I had to get it back to the library. I look forward to finishing it later.

  9. Sounds like a good reading week! I really need to start keeping track of the kids books that I read with my two little ones -- I keep meaning to do that and then forget to write down the titles -- sigh.

  10. Wow, you got lots of books done last week! Sorry about that class book though, that does not sound fun at all.

  11. Sheila Lowe is on my list! :) I might have already told you that

  12. what did u think of Black Hills?

  13. Crystal - I have this lucky ...hhmmm, I guess it could be called a feature... with my library card.

    As a kid (middle schooled age) I volunteered at the library (mostly w/ the summer reading program). After 100 hours of volunteering (2 or 3 summers for me), I got what they call a "Gold Card" This special card (it is gold, btw) late fees!

    So, this sounds bad but if a book is overdue and I've exceeded renewals or someone else has a hold on it... I can just keep reading until I'm done (I know - selfish) and have no monetary repercussions.

    Marie - I don't keep track of them all either, but I try and when I do...they're listed.

    alitareads - No, it's not. Unfortunately, if I need to read at least this one chapter if I have any hope of understanding my assignment.

    J. Kaye - You did, but that's okay. =D I'm looking forward to seeing what you think once you do.

  14. Joy - I liked it. It certainly has NR's voice, which I like or I wouldn't keep reading her books.

  15. I'm not familiar with Kai Meyer but the titles sound interesting to me!
    You have lots of choices.
    Hope you get through your class book okay!

  16. You're making me jealous with all those books! I wish I could as many books read in a week. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day for me to get done everything that I would love to get done! LOL

    Have a great week! :D

  17. MarthaE - I was looking for the library's copy of Eragon in the YA section, saw a section of her books, decided they looked interesting, and couldn't resist picking up a couple.

    Ruth - Ah, well, my solution is to cut out sleep. I just have to be careful not to lose sleep too many days in a row or I get sick.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
