What I Need Is A Few More Book Reviews to Read

I don't know who coined the words, "book porn", but it seems there's much of it going around.

Normally, book porn (especially my own) makes me smile. Makes me want even more! Normally.

So, when a box arrived (from that place that I wish I had stock in) from Amazon, I got out my trusty little camera and took this photo...



...book porn is what happens when you read Carl's Book Challenge Reviews...

Five out of the six of the above books are here because of book reviews. (*rolling my eyes* shaking my head*) Instead of putting the blame on 5 different people for 5 different reviews.. I'll just blame Carl!! (Someone started the blame game, Maybe Debi? But whoever.. it works for me!)

The 6th book, "Monkey Business" by Simon Louvish is a used book, there because I enjoyed his book on Laurel and Hardy so much. Thought I'd test to see if my enjoyment was a fluke, or he really writes well enough to make me enjoy it.

This pile of book porn also upgrades my TBR list to a grand total of 42!

Not to mention that two more books I've been waiting for will be released within the next 2 weeks.

1--- The Dragon's Lair (The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme)
by Elizabeth Haydon July 8
2---
The Magician: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
by Michael Scott June 24

(*bad amazon wish list! bad! bad!)

Even with the porn it isn't my best day. Everything is driving me nuts!

I've gained 8 lbs since I stopped smoking 19 weeks ago today. (notice I didn't say "quit" yet! I don't think I've beat this yet) Do you have any idea how hard it is to loose 10 lbs? "those last 10 lbs"... someone having to loose 100 lbs would have an easier time! And I'm still more than willing to smoke again in order to do this!

Lessee.. oh, then there's this pain on the top of my foot. A foot doctor stuck it with a needle and wanted me to get some "medicine pads" to put on it... 365.00!! Hello?!! NOT!

Oh.. and it's mammogram time again... gosh I am so freaking thrilled I can't begin to tell you!

So....... I'm told this David Sedaris book is funny......... all I can say is: IT BETTER BE!! I need a good laugh about now!



Inside every older person is a younger person -- wondering what the hell happened.

Sorry to hear about all those troubles :( I hope the Sedaris book manages to cheer you up!

I spot Anne of Green Gables (and such a nice edition too!) I really look forward to your thoughts on that one :)

Hopefully you don't start smoking again... it really is bad for your health. Once you adjust I am sure you can beat those last ten pounds. I imagine quitting smoking is harder than losing ten pounds, but then, I don't smoke so I don't know for sure. Best of luck to you! Wonderful books, though. I hope you enjoy Anne of Green Gables. I have been considering a reread of the series lately but haven't got there yet.
