Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Another busy week, I didn't get as much read for Bout of Books as I had hoped, mostly because I keep putting off Harry Potter.  I am about ready to throw the towel in but at the same time I have pushed through almost to the end of book 6, I only have one left!  Curse my habit of finishing a series once I start it! I keep hoping I will find something redeeming about this series.  Anyway, it was nice to get back to a less chaotic posting schedule this last week. I have so many books I want to share with all of you that I have been reading.  What have you been reading? Any great new discoveries?


  1. I'm sorry you're not liking Harry Potter. It's hard to find the motivation to read when you're not liking what you're reading.

    1. I think the issue with Harry Potter is that I missed reading it in the hype and at the right age, I think I have read too many fantasy books that are better to really be able to enjoy it (even when it came out this might still have been the case).
