I woke up this morning in a panic, thinking I’d slept through the Read-a-Thon. I had a dream that I had, and that my husband was encouraging me to just tell people that I’d been up on time and was reading all day. ”NOOOOO! I can’t LIE to them!”
So, I’ve been feeling the backlash from that weird ass dream all morning so far. Maybe if I talk about the Read-a-Thon, I’ll get over it?
I’m still planning on trying to get through the books I already mentioned, but JUST IN CASE I hate them or am not feeling them or something, I’ve decided to add one of my very favourite books to the list too.
Patrick Süskind’s Perfume is a strange sort of comfort book, because it’s so very uncomfortable to read. It’s one, however, that I’ve been in the habit of picking up when I hate everything for the last 12 years, or so. I figure it’ll be like my secret ace in the hole in case I don’t like/finish everything I DO like tomorrow.
So, don’t worry. I’ll be ready to start reading at 8 am tomorrow, and will have ONE POST that I’ll update throughout the day. Oh, in addition to goodreads updates syncing to twitter, so if you’re interested in following that stuff too – well, you can follow me there, can’t you?
IN OTHER NEWS!
The votes were cast for the October Drinkalong, and the results were as follows:
I look forward to watching Creep Show with you guys on Friday, Oct. 26 at our standard start time of 10:15 pm EDT. Look, I even set up a countdown timer already (I’m totally prepared this time, guys) so you can keep track of when we’re starting.
I was thinking of making this Drinkalong a Free Drink instead of imposing rules on everyone. What say you?
(sidenote: I just totally remembered that also in my dream Byronic Man had finally started a twitter account. Now I’m hoping this wasn’t a prophetic dream because while having him on twitter would be all the awesome, I really don’t want to sleep through Read-a-Thon.)
Oh, and the title for today’s post came from this song:
[eta] Weird that I dreamt B-Man was on twitter because he just posted today that their baby girl was born! Go wish him congratulations on the birth of The Byronic Girl. She’s gorgeous.
