Sunday Summary: Lost and Found

This week has seemed very long, which is odd because I don't remember anything happening. Maybe I wasn't sleeping enough? Maybe it's my micro-novel that I am poking at during NaNoWriNo or whatever this write-a-book-in-November thing is called (mine may turn out to be more picture-book length). Regardless, I'm not sure what I've read. Thank goodness LibraryThing remembers for me.
  • Saplings: Four happy children made miserable through good intentions.
  • The Name of the Wind: Magician reminisces on his early training.
  • Must Love Hellhounds: Four tough women meet strange dogs.
  • Ring of Fire: Horses, danger, and True Love, back in the bad old days.
  • Grave Secret: Harper Connelly learns a few secrets. I forgot about this one since it went straight to my sister, do not pause on the "read-it" pile.
Wow, I just realized that there is not a kid's book in the batch! This may be a first for me. I hope it's not a sign that I am growing up. Only one book is shelved in the "fiction" section (well, possibly two), so I think I'm safe.

Bookmarks still lurk in a few library books:
  • Serenity Found. Still missing. It wasn't under the couch. Darn.
  • The Prisoner Within. I really wish this had been the one I lost. It's still dragging.
  • What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. I'm savoring this one. I even went and bought new sneakers just in case I start long distance running.
  • Underground. Third book in a paranormal series.
  • Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things. Finally a kid book!
I'm still pushing bookmarks along in a few other books, but the library crisis overshadows any home reading.
  • Fairest. I'm grumpy with the protagonist.
  • Flint. If L'Amour doesn't kill off the hero, I'll be disappointed. I bet he saves him, though.
  • Astroturf. Now we are at gay rights in the space industry.

If you start long-distance running after reading Murakami, I will make sure I am at the finish line to cheer you on! :-)

I think I last saw the Serenity book when you were walking into the yellow house after the movie.
