I am currently in a literary limbo. I have a book on the go, still The Cold Moon by Jeffery Deaver. It is trundling along nicely, and I should get a bit more read this afternoon, as I am not at work (but then again, there IS ironing I could be doing, sigh!). But what do I do if I finish it? Is it worth starting another book, or do I wait for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. It is still a week away, but if I get caught mid-book, Colin will jump in and read it first and then he’ll know what happens before me!! It is going to be very difficult as it is, to not find out what happens before I read it, cos somewhere someone is going to mention it, aren’t they?
I shall also be bumping HP up the TBR pile, and recklessly discarding everything else once it is here in my hot little hands. This is my list of books “to be read”, and not all of them are registered on here either. And what did I go and do last night? I suggested we go to Borders “just for a Starbucks” but of course it didn’t end there. I came home with a “buy one get one half price”.
The first one was “Tunnels“, which is rumoured to be the Next Big Thing in kid’s fiction. I almost didn’t buy it because I don’t want to be disappointed if I don’t enjoy it after all the hype. The other one was “Grave Doubts” by Elizabeth Corley which sounds good. I don’t read a lot of UK set thrillers, but I was drawn to this one.
I’m getting fed up with Simply Knitting magazine. I have sent a couple of emails now about my competition socks and have had no reply, and I want them back!! I can’t seem to get any response. I did have an email at least 6 weeks ago saying they were all being returned, but I haven’t had mine, and Sweet Camden Lass hasn’t had hers either. Gggrrrrrr!
