Long overdue

...for an update. In fact, it's been so long, I'm not sure I can remember what I've read.

Back to vacation...I finished "Sizzling Sixteen" and "Eat, Pray, Love" - though the latter cost me a pretty penny at the library, since I didn't quite get it back on time. I also spent some time reading "The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop", which I finished shortly after we returned home. (Great non-fiction book about book publishing, selling, etc.)

Then, I went on a brief hiatus. For real. I checked things out from the library but didn't read them. Nothing sounded good. I did finally pick up "Sea of Monsters", the 2nd Percy Jackson book that my kiddo is wanting to read, but I needed to preview.

Then, I decided it was time to re-read The Hunger Games, books 1 & 2 in anticipation of today's release of "Mockingjay" (book 3). I sped through those this weekend and enjoyed them nearly as much the second time as I did the first.

Immediately following, I started "The Heart of the Matter" by Emily Giffin, a 14-day loan from the library that is due soon. On top of that, I ordered next month's book club book, "Sarah's Key" and it came yesterday. And, "Mockingjay" has been on pre-order since it became available, and while I had high hopes of it arriving today, it looks like tomorrow is more likely. So, I've finished "The Heart of the Matter" and am trying to decide whether to loan "Sarah's Key" to someone else from book club. I just don't think "Mockingjay" will take more than a couple evenings, though.

What a thrilling read this blog must be. Ha.

Obviously, I've gone from doing no reading to another reading binge. How did that happen?
