New Year, New Goals, New Books

It's time for me to get off my lazy-iPad-addicted-arse and pick up some new reading material!!

Right now, I'm reading The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks.  I started it on my way home from Seattle after visiting for Christmas break.  Unfortunately, I had little time to escape away into some reading (ahem, unlike my sister Kati), so it wasn't until the flight home that I was able to crack this baby open. 

I love me some Sparks ;-)

Speaking of new beginnings, the hubbs has decided he's going to get in some serious reading while he's got a couple months of down time before cutting season begins.  On the flight home, he also cracked open a new book (Frankenstein by Mary Shelley) and finished it within 5 days!!!  He thinks he's going to out-read me this year. That's just crazy talk.
As soon as I finish The Best of Me, its on like Donkey-Kong, cause I got my very own copy of Nobody's Child from author Austin Boyd that I plan to devour! Whohoo!!
And for your sheer enjoyment, check out this stop-motion video of books left alone after the bookstore closes.

Be back soon, promise.

Frankenstein is one of my favorite books. I've read it three times. Bet you didn't know that. ;)

You should have Jason do a guest post, it could be pretty funny to see this literary battle unfold.

I second the idea of a guest post. I also loved Frankenstein and would like to read it a second time. As for that video, I am quite sure you like it becuase those books color coordinated themselves like you do your books. :) Which I truly enjoyed. haha.
