I've just spent a few minutes going through the list "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" found on http://www.listology.com/content_show.cfm/content_id.22845/Books

I now have even more reasons to stay up way too late.
sigh....

Well, one good tip for our patrons. If you are in
the market for some wheels the library carries the
Consumer Reports issue on rating cars/trucks. It gives
the lowdown on the good, the bad and the "stay-away froms".
I have personally used it for myself and my son. A great tool.

i didn't realize she had come out with the sequal to Twilight already! I can't wait to read it, whenever I can manage to find some free time! (maybe I'll read it during Thanksgiving break!) I also want to read another new book, by Tamora Pierce, but I can't remember the name of the book...

Right now, i'm not doing any free reading of my own...which is kind of sad, in a way, but I won't have time to this weekend. I'm going to New Hampshire with my roommate! :-D I can't wait!


Twilight's sequel, New Moon is GREAT! I also highly recommend a new title called Greywalker by Kat Richardson. It was a little Buffy mixed with tons o' other supernatural fiction fun. I'm waiting to read the next one! Last week, I checked out part of season 1 of "Supernatural," which is a very satisfying series that I don't get to see (as I get only two channels on my television). I muted lots of scenes and covered my eyes in the episodes I saw, which makes it somewhat thrilling and scary IMO. Available at your local library, as always!

(We also just got in Ruler of the Realm, the third book of the Faerie War Chronicles by Herbie Brennan. Those who have been waiting since the end of The Purple Emperor will want to reserve a copy today!)

By the side of my bed, I've got two books that are the beginning volumes of two new series/trilogies. Monster Blood Tattoo, Book One: Foundling is written by D.M. Cornish and looks like just the right read for a cold winter night (complete with a cup of peppermint tea!).

David Klass's new The Caretaker Trilogy begins with Firestorm. This one is a book to start on a Sunday afternoon when the weather is wretched and all of your laundry is clean and folded and put away!

I'd thought I'd surprise everyone and write a message (okay, you can gasp now!) :P Things are going well here at college, although I have never been so busy in my life! Talk about reading. I thought I was bad before with reading, now I' m worse! Of course, it's all assigned work, but still...I'm reading more now than I ever have before!

I had my first midterm today, and I have no idea how I did. I think I did alright. I'll keep my fingers crossed..

I came home this past weekend, and I had such a good time. I went to my grandmother's house and walked outback, where she has a camp, saw some turkeys, and took some pictures. I also saw my aunt, who owns an apple orchard, and saw turkeys there as well. Then, to my surprise, my dad came up on Satruday, and he took Ryan and I out to lunch, and we spent a while with him talking and cathing up. I just had a wonderful weekend. I came back to UMF feeling refreshed and like I was a new person. I didn't realize how much I missed being outdoors in the fall; I haven't done that in a long time...

Well, I just thought I'd surprise everyone and say something, but now it's my time to go and do homework! Surprise, surprise...
