Welcome, welcome! I hope you're having a pleasant Sunday. (Sometimes the lazier the better!) Have you read any good books lately? Any you especially want to recommend? I love hearing from readers!
What have I been up to? Besides reading you mean? Well, I've become immersed in watching FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON. I am three episodes in, and I am loving it. The drama. The music. The emotions. Wow is the only way to describe it. If you haven't seen this series about the race to the moon, spaceflight, you REALLY REALLY should.
I also watched Bolt. It was fun. Funnier than I expected. I liked it more than I thought I would.
What else, what else...well, I've started twittering. Not as much as some. Some people it seems twitter all day and most of the night. Still I have found it to be fun. If you twitter, I'd love to have you follow me. We can have bookish conversations :)
Random question for YOU. What comes first? Do you give priority to library books or books that you own? Does having a due date from the library influence you at all as to what gets read when? Or do you have a good stand-by friend called renew?
