Bookish (& Not So Bookish) Thoughts
Happy Thursday! Happy reading!
♡ That moment when so many books seem interesting, yet you have a stack of eARCs you need to read. Some of which are for blog tours. I really gotta stop doing so many blog tours within the same week! Or two weeks.
♡ Seriously though. I’m taking a Nonfiction Creative Writing class (currently) and we keep talking about nonfiction books. I have never been one to read nonfiction. I mean, I hardly ever watch/read/google the news. Yet, my textbook is making them seem so interesting! We read an excerpt of Dave Eggers’ memoir A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius. The excerpt is titled “I Could Be Going Out, Sure”. Omg. I can relate to it soooo damn much. Once upon a time, I was a single mother. I relished the thought of going out and partying it up like I was in high school. Then remembered I had responsibilities and no babysitter. Then we watched a YouTube Clip about Eggers and… He. Is. Hilarous! It makes me actually want to pick up his memoir. What is happening to me?
♡ Another one is Joan Didion. And her memoirs. Oh and Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. We read excerpts from various memoirs of both. Still, I feel the need (and want) to read something of theirs.
♡ So I’m still considering Task It Tuesday. Except I might do it on Mondays, and just link up on Tuesdays. Since Monday starts the week (except it ends my school week). Hmm. I might start it in mid-May…
♡ Speaking of school… I’m taking a little break. It’s only a 3 week break, but it is very much needed. I ended up having to put in a Leave Of Absence, otherwise after 2 weeks the financial aid people will think I dropped out. I guess I have a two week grace period for not posting in the classroom. Oh the joys of online college. 😉 At least I do have the pleasure of taking a break after a class ends, if I need it. So it’s both good and bad.
♡ Chris and I are taking a little mini vacay. Well, technically, I am. In 3 weeks. He’ll be working. He’s going to a work conference and I’m tagging along with him. It’ll be in San Francisco. I’ll take lots of pics!
♡ I’ll have posts scheduled, but I won’t be around much. I promise though, I will return and spam you guys with likes and comments. Plus, replying to comments you guys leave me. I’m so terrible at that lately! I’m sorry guys! 🙁
What are your bookish or not so bookish thoughts this week? Let me know!
