I am still on a blogging break. I really needed to step back for my own sanity, and with the amount of craziness that has happened this week, I know I made the right decision. I can't talk about everything now, but I am sure I will reveal bits and pieces in the future.
Anyway, you will see some posts going up this week. I am going to continue hosting for my readalongs, as well as getting the one for April up and running. You'll see posts for The Three Musketeers, Atlas Shrugged, and the last post for War and Peace that never seemed to make it up. Again, I am really sorry about that.
I am doing some reading, but my focus has been on other things this week. I already broke my book buying ban since the Borders that is closing near my home reduced their prices again this week. I have a serious problem. I think Matt is on the verge of taking away all book buying rights, so my ban has been reinstated after a serious splurge yesterday. But these are the new titles sitting on my shelves (oh, and I need more of those as well...)
The left pile includes (from bottom to top):
- The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
- The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
- Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane by Suzanne Collins
- Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins
- The Witches by Roald Dahl
- The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham
- Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
The right pile includes (from bottom to top):
- One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
- Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
- Possession by A.S. Byatt
- Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner
- Electra and Other Plays by Euripedes
- Ethan Frome (Deluxe Edition) by Edith Wharton
- Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson
- Metamorphoses by Ovid
- Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier
- The Sea Wolf by Jack London
Lots of new titles and quite a few from my book list. It is hard to say no to books that are 40% off. It is also incredibly sad to see a bookstore half empty when two weeks ago it was bursting.
I hope you are all doing well, and I hope to be rejoining you all sooner rather than later.
