What Do You Think....

Will my blog implode if I post something after all this time?

I have no real excuse except I've been over blogging for a while.
I don't really have anything interesting to say nor the energy to make something up.
I've been a maniac on Twitter because I feel like I can handle 140 characters at a time. A blog...not so much.

I haven't even been reading much but I finally grabbed a book off of one of my many shelves of unread books and started reading again.

It was good....so I read another and am reading another and I feel like I have my book mojo back.

I made a little informal reading list for the summer.
I am free to add or take away from the list at any time but I think this is going to be The Summer of Reading.

City of Thieves (reading now)

A Dance to the Music of Time
Volumes 1 - 3
There are 4 volumes but they only had the first three at my favorite used book store so I thought I'd track down the 4th if I liked the first three.

Carbon Diaries
I got this as an advance readers copy and intended to read it a long time ago.

The Strain
Another advance copy that I've been meaning to read for ages.

What's on your list?

I'm just reading and re-reading drafts of my love letters to you.

Oh, and the stalking keeps me pretty busy.

And you're not allowed to quit blogging.

When are you going to send those drafts? I'd give up my summer reading list for them!

A Dance to the Music of Time...If I were not already in love with a girl who loves ADTMOT I'd marry you sight unseen.

Sight unseen eh?
That's a dangerous statement! ;)

I look forward to reading it but I can't FIND Vol. 1. I've looked through my gazillion books and nothing. I've still got a few hiding places to check out.
Until then...

Goddamn you, Currie. Goddamn you all to hell! This one's MINE!

Then, Skippy, you will have to know who NicK Jenkins is, and Widmerpool and, most of all, Pamel Fliton.

And, of course sight unseen...looks fade, ADTTMOT is pretty much forever. Ignore this Stalin person...nothing but prOn and obsession with the Lying Jackal. But he does have the virtue of not, so far as can be seen, being taken: a virtue I delightfully lack. Tough call.

How adorable. Fighting over my literary choices and me. Fight to the death, boys. I'll take the victor!

Okay, let's get DOWN.

You want to bring the literary sexy? Beat this.

Ever read the first three pages of Tropic of Cancer? It describes me perfectly...
