Monday Round Up (10.12.09)

October 12, 2009

on_mondays“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

This week I finished Pride and Prejudice and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Two great classics.

And then I moved far away from classics and started Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham, which is fun and giggle-inducing.

I had another fun little trip to the library on Saturday.

I picked up Holly’s Inbox, which I had decided a week back that I just couldn’t wait for and had put it on hold. I may have ran to the library right after I received the email that it had arrived.

I also found Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the movie. Unfortunately all the DVD versions were out, so I picked it up in VHS. I only hope my VHS player doesn’t try to munch on it like it did to Jane Eyre. Errr….

I was so very excited when I received According to Jane by Marilyn Brant. I won a signed manuscript of the book from Lydia at NovelWhore’s Blog. After a few phone calls and rearrangements with FedEx, I was happily tearing into the package as I walked down the street. Thanks Lydia!

All right, now I’m off to eat not one, but two Thanksgiving dinners. And I haven’t quite yet recovered from the one yesterday. That’s right, 3 Thanksgiving dinners in 2 days. I will be rolling to work tomorrow. Yum :)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my fellow Canadian bloggers!!

    I’m so glad I stopped here. I’ve got a coupon (that expires today) from Borders. I’m going to pick up Holly’s Inbox. I’ve been meaning to read it and I know my daughters will like it. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Oh yes, quite accomplished. I needed to read something silly after them, you know, just to make sure I know my place ;)

    Happy Thanksgiving. You’ve got some great books on your list and I hope the VCR behaves since Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a wonderful movie.

    I like to jump around in genres like that…though I haven’t been doing so lately!

    I’ll be curious to see what you think about Holly’s Inbox — I’ve been debating about that one :-)

    My list is here:

    I am now officially hungry for Thanksgiving. I will be thinking about it for over a month!!!
    Giggle inducing books are wonderful.
    You finished some great books and looks like you have some more to enjoy. Have fun!

    I always forget to look for DVDs at the library. I really should because there are no fees, unlike going to the video rental shop.

    lol @ running to your library for a hold! I’ve totally done that. :D

  14. October 15, 2009 5:29 am
