I am soooooo tired. No, actually I’m sooooooooooooooooo tired. I wish it was because I’ve been out all night partying or something. No, it’s because I can’t stop reading my book. At all. Especially at night. When I should be sleeping. I was the same with my last book too, so I’ve not had a decent night’s sleep for over a week. It’s killing me.
You can now see the book I’m currently reading to the right of my blog. I saw this idea on Book Chick City’s blog and had to copy it (once the boyfriend was enlisted to work out how to do it!). In some respects I hope I read very few books this year – then I won’t have to change it often. (You’ll also see a new button for the T&SRC and my Nano winner one. Yay!).
I think I’m going to have to change the layout of this blog – I’d like one with a collumn to the left as well as the right. The problem is I really like this one. One day…
Back to the challenge then. My first book is The Crush by Sandra Brown. This was not supposed to be my first book. I saw it on offer in Tesco last week and HAD to buy it. You know when you read the cover and can’t stop yourself from buying it? I had that. It was the right thing to do – it’s brilliant. As I said, I can’t put it down. I’m about 2/3 of the way through it – in some respects I want the next 1/3 to go FAST, but at the same time I don’t want it to end!
I have way more than 11 other books lined up for this challenge. I don’t know how I’m going to decide which ones to read for it. I keep reading people’s reviews of books and wanting to add them to my list. The list is way too long. I think this challenge will be a definite success for me!
I had to return a library book yesterday. I went there and managed to NOT pick up any more books. I was tempted – really really tempted. But (somehow) managed to stop myself. Maybe it’s the fact I have 2 library books at home to read (and the one I’m currently reading ISN’T a library book); Maybe it’s cause I’m so annoyed at myself for having to pay ANOTHER fine to the library (it’s round the corner from work, I can renew online, and yet I still get fines??!?! How?!!?); Or maybe (I’m going with this one) it’s because I had a little count up of how many unread books are on my shelf. 64. 64 plus a couple I added after the count that I couldn’t bring myself to add. 64. That’s like 3 years reading right there (if I read at the rate I read last year – I hope to read many more this year). AND the problem is, I know for a fact there are at least 5 books that are going to come out in paperback this year so I will HAVE to buy them.
I need to win the lottery so I can stay home and read all day for the next year or so. How good would that be. With a little (lot) of writing too! Apparently you have to do it to win it? Who knew? Will start that one tomorrow. Wish me luck!
