Throwing pennies from the top of the stairs on to the map of the United States at the bottom. Duh. What does it look like?
Well, they keep bouncing off. I am hoping one of them will stay on.
Do you know what time it is?
Six...maybe six thirty.
That's a very annoying sound.
|That would be Colorado, my friends!|
And on to other things....
Remember my list of books I wanted to read this summer? Well, I still cannot find it. However, I remember a few of them! (The reason that I remember them is that they are written by bloggers of wonderful blogs that I visit often. Naturally, that makes me curious about their books. I mean, you get a taste of their writing personality on their blog, but a whole book! Now that is very exciting!)
Now, this is not my whole list. Just a few titles. These also happen to be YA. It helps me sometimes when I am DEEP into a first draft or a very complicated revision NOT to read in my genre. I don't want to inadvertently pick up the wrong voice. My brain just shifts into a different gear when I am reading out of genre and that seems to work for me (and not effect my own writing too much.)
Summer 2011 Want to Read List 1A: (If you click on the covers, it will take you to the author blogs.
|Why do I want to read this? Because Carrie is warped and funny and I could really use a little bit of warped and funny these days.|
|Why do I want to read this? It's an e-book and I want to give it a try! I mean, why not, right? Plus, PJ dressed up as a goddess at a book event and, well....I mean....I wear a crown and stuff. Gotta stick together.|
|Why do I want to read this book? Well, Elana just goes for it on her blog. That's the kind of person she is. So I am expecting that she will just go for it in her book.|
So, that is the beginning of the list. All books freshly out (as in within the last few months.)
However, today I will not be reading. I am off to Yellow Book Road to be part of their Summer Literacy Camp! And tomorrow I am off the the libraries of Camp Pendleton for the day.
But the next day. I.Am.Reading. (When I am not revising, that is.)
