Hello, Sunday Blogging Buddies, hope you had a great week!
I got a lot of reading done this week, but still have those time consuming reviews on my "to do" list. Does anyone have suggestions as to how to make this a less painful task --- like how to do a review in less than 30 minutes ?
This Week in Books (awaiting reviews)
- Secrets of Eden; Chris Bohjalian (release date 2/2/2010) - very good
- Making Rounds With Oscar; David Dosa M.D. - LOVED IT!!
- Noah's Compass; Anne Tyler - (very sweet story)
- Shutter Island; Dennis LeHane (audio book) - good thriller - movie out in February
Coming Week Bookish Plans:
- Wish Her Safe At Home; Stephen Benatar (current read - very good)
- Not My Daughter; Barbara Delinsky
- American Rust; Phillip Meyer
- The Happiness Project; Gretchen Rubin
- This is Where I Leave You; Jonathan Tropper (audio book)
(Not a thing planned; just the way I like my Sundays). How about you?
Thanks to Jenn @ The Introverted Reader for thinking of me with the Dragon Loyalty Award!
And more thanks to Kay @ My Random Acts of Reading for the Bald Faced Liar whoops....Creative Writer Award.
(For those of you so kind to take the time to try and sort out my Bald Face Lies from the Truth---- here's the truth!):
1. My husband bought me a BMW for my 50th Birthday. (nope - lie - I wish)
2. I've been to Tahiti twice. (nope - Lie - Another I wish)
3. I've met Tony Soprano (James Gandolpini) (nope - Lie)
( I did meet Uncle Junior, Dominic Cianese)
4. I don't know how to swim. (TRUTH - they tried to teach me when I was little but, I was afraid of the water and cried, my mom never made me go back to learn)
5. My hair is dyed blond. ( blond lie / dyed true)
6. My mother was 50 when I was born. (nope - lie, she was 36)
7. I participated in a New Year's Day Polar Bear swim in the ocean in 2000. (nope - lie, we watched the nuts who participated, but no way was I jumping into frigid New England waters on New Years Day)
(There were 18 entries since I posted this yesterday afternoon, and only (1) correct answer. Fizzy Thoughts A.K.A. Softdrink (I'll email you and let you choose a book from a list of several books that I have available for giveaways) CONGRATS and thanks to all who played along!
Have a Great Week Everyone!
