About Me

My photo
About me, always hard to put into words a description about myself. We always see ourselves differently than others do. My likes: I love sports, all kinds. Especially NASCAR and baseball. Yea, strange I know, a bleeding heart liberal who likes NASCAR and country music. But here I am. I also am profoundly proud of the relationship that I have with my children and my family. They made me who I am today. Pink is my favorite color. I like all kinds of music, except perhaps rap. I am a rabid NPR listener and love my doggie. I work full time, am a semi-vegetarian, a voracious reader and a wanna be writer. Doing all that I do in the beautiful South Florida sunshine.

Pick the next book I read

I have so many to choose from. So I'm asking you to pick one for me. I'm wrapping up The Girl Who Played With Fire. I'm enjoying it, but it has me annoyed right now. I did that with the 1st book in this series as well. Am I supposed to believe that this chick has been abused sexually and mentally by every man in her life except Blomkvist?? Really?? I can't imagine that the majority of Swedish men are such complete pricks. Maybe it's just the one's that Lisbeth comes across that are douche's. Anyway, I'll reserve final judgement to when I finally finish it. Which should be sometime this weekend. Definitely by Saturday.

My next book is between the following:

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon

I usually read more than one at a time, but these are library books that are due soon. I just can't decide which one to read first.

Thanks for your help.

what a tough choice!!!

I say Graveyard Book, but then renew, or re-take-out Await Your Reply.

So, read Graveyard Book first, then Await Your Reply second...


If you can get the Audio of The Graveyard Book, listen to that, and read Await Your Reply.

Yeah, that's what I'd do!

Hmmm. Ok, I think I'll read The Graveyard Book. Luckily I read quickly. So, I'll start that tomorrow. I should be done by Sunday. I can read it faster than I can listen to it probably.

And yea, it is a tough choice.

Hmm. I like Michael's idea. But I think Await Your Reply should be next if you have to choose. Why? Because I haven't read it yet and won't get to it for awhile, so I can live vicariously through you!

Rita said...

Ah, so I'm back to square one!!

I'll put in a vote for Graveyard Book. Gaiman has recently become a favorite of mine, and the book definitely doesn't disappoint. Plus, it's a quick read, so you can finish it and get right to Await Your Reply!

Rita said...

For the record, I started Graveyard (sorry Ann)

But you are correct, it'll be fast, I'll be done by tomorrow and will then start Await.
