First of all, thanks to everyone who left supportive comments on my whiny posts this week. After a week spent out of town for work, I am happily back home, well-rested, and back to my (ab)normal fizzy self.
On a sort of book related note, Hamburger and I rented No Country for Old Men last night. And I feel confident in stating that I will not be reading that book. Not that I had planned to, but now I really don't plan to. Hamburger and I are both fans of Fargo and Burn After Reading. Yesterday, while at my cousin's wedding, my brother recommended No Country for Old Men. He said it was funny. Dark, but funny. I don't know what my brother's been smoking, but that was not a funny movie. Violent, yes. Ha, ha...no.
I've read some wonderful books over the last week, although I haven't written a single review. So, upcoming blog posts will include reviews of:
I also started Their Eyes Were Watching God, in honor of Banned Books Week. Although Banned Books Week is now over, I'm still reading the book, so my timing is a little off. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?
In other news, Dewey is compiling a list of top books of 2008. Contribute your top 10 list of books published in 2008 here and you'll sleep soundly knowing you've done your part in compiling the most important top 10 list of the year. Oh, and if that isn't enough to convince you, Dewey is giving away books to further entice you.
