*poke poke* Is this thing on?

Heee. I've already used that pic over on the #spbkchat blog (which is here by the way, let's not pass up the chance for a little bit of self-promotion:  But meerkats are funny and make me smile and I'm too lazy to find another pic, so here you are. ;p

Now, let's see ... since last time, I've finished three books - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John LeCarre (fantastic but slightly confusing); Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman (preferred American Gods but it's still good. I mean. Gaiman) and Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Heard (loved. LOVED.)

I went to What's Your Number, which made me somewhat ragey with the slut-shaming and the prevalent 1950s attitude that's in ALL THE ROMANTIC COMEDIES RIGHT NOW but Martin Freeman was in it for five minutes for no good reason, so there was that.


What's good is this: Readathon!! In a few short weeks! I've taken the sensible route this time (lol) and I've just signed up to be a cheerleader, not a reader as well. Cheerleading is fun, it helps you lose weight and helps old ladies across the road. Well. It's definitely the first thing, and you should sign up because there are always way more readers than cheerleaders and readathon readers need all the *\o/* they can get! :D

I will - probably - do a food porn vlog still because how could I not? It's readathon!

Maree? Food? Books? Vlog? Fuck yes!

I've been promising for a while and the readathon vlog is a tradition ;)

Glad to see you back around! I look forward to your vlog. :)

Horray for food porn vlogs! I learned about Hokey Pokey ice cream from one of your readathon snack vlogs, and for that I am eternally grateful.

So excited that you loved 'Across The Nightingale Floor'. I really want to know what you think of the rest of the series (especially the last book because *ngh bites thumb*).

Maree said...

Kailana: Thank you!
Memory: Eeee!! Hokey pokey ice cream is the best of all foods! :D
Jodie I did, it was so good! I'm going to hunt out book two next time I'm at the library
