Weekly Round Up (01.27.13)
Hi guys! I missed doing a round up last week because I was away on vacation. So this is what I’ve read in the last two weeks.
These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:
One of my absolute favourite things to do when I go to Maui (the whole two times I’ve been) is to head to the beach right before sunset and watch the sun go down. I love that everything slows down for half an hour while people watch another day end. On the second last night of our trip, I headed to the beach closest to our condo by myself and found a quiet little perch on the rocks. I had been listening to my audio book, but as the sun began to set in earnest I decided to switch over to some music. So I turned on my favourite song of the moment, Dark. I listened as I watched the waves crash in and the sun lower, and it ended at the exact same moment that the sun slipped beneath the water. It was amazing. And now, with that memory attached to it, I love the song even more than I did before.

Nothing bookish to share, but I have new music to share. Yes, music that arrived in my physical mailbox!
I signed up for Merchbox a few weeks ago, and when I got back from vacation my first monthly package was waiting in my mailbox!
Here’s what I got:
*The Sanctuaries – Annette (I didn’t enjoy this as much as I’d hoped. My favourite songs are the 2 instrumental ones – but I really, really like those.)
*Iameve – The Everything Nothing: Act 1 (I’m listen to this now, but iTunes keeps crashing at the end of each song. Which is annoying. But I like what I hear so far. It’s kind of theatrical.)
*Fortune Teller Fish (I just tried it out, and it fell right off my hand. That’s not one of the options on the back, so who knows what that’s supposed to be. Perhaps that I’m unbalanced.)
*Starburst & sour candy (I can attest to their deliciousness)
Can’t wait for next month’s package! Check out what other people received.

What are you reading and listening to? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
