The reading week




How is it possible that it's Monday again already? I have done very, very little reading over the past week or so. I spent most of last week on the internet, or symbolically sobbing into my lost youth, as I turned 38 on Friday.


Meh.


Anyway ... books. What are you reading on Mondays? is asked here: http://j-kaye-book-blog.blogspot.com/2009/06/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_15.html


I'm still working on Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings, and I started The Strain, bu Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan _ which I bought. I almost never buy books now; they're so expensive here. The trade paperback was $40, but so far, SO worth it.
Otherwise, Ray Bradbury is still hanging out on my bedside table going “..... uh ...... guys?” and I'm contemplating a Star Trek novel.
Uh ….... that's it. Happy reading everyone :)

Sounds like some good reading ahead! Which Star Trek book? I'm going to have to go read about a trade book that costs $40!
Happy reading!

Sharon: I'm not sure. I think it's the first part of a four-part post-series one called Destiny?
Tea: I think it's the exchange rate; I'm in New Zealand, so pretty much everything is expensive. $40 is about standard for a trade paperback, and also one of the reasons I don't buy books very often!
Teddyree: Aw, thanks :)

Wow! you are a long way away. I hear New Zealand is beautiful.

That was indeed expensive, but I'm glad to hear it's turning out to be worth it.
