So Many Books, So Little Time
Wow, where has the week gone!
This has been my first full week of school and new job, and I haven’t had a nervous breakdown yet. McHotty, though he initally had reservations about all this, has really stepped up to the plate. He has been doing the housework, shopping and cooking. And, when I brought this home for him, he even took up baking!
Do you think it curries favour with your new colleagues when you bring in fresh home-baked cookies?
I’m loving the new job--it is so fantastic being surrounded by books all day. The only problem is, so far I have no time to read them. I’m going home at night to read boring lit theory, when I have a stack of new fiction sitting next to my bed.
I can’t resist this...
Last night I gave in to temptation, and read 100 pages of this manuscript instead of the 19th Century Canadian Poetry I’m supposed to be reading for Monday’s class. Dudes, I’m loving it. Our friend Rebecca isn’t the only blog to book success story. This writer, Catherine, a former Brit who lives in Paris, has a great blog called petite anglaise. In one year, she broke up with the father of her child, had a relationship with a man she met in her comment box, got outed, got dooced, and then got a book deal! Great stuff. I think I’ll have to put off my term papers one more day to find out how it ends.
What books are sitting next to your bed right now? What are you going to crack first?
