I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
So, I skipped ahead in my reading queue last week and read two "just picked up books" instead of what had been sitting by my reading chair for a while. (Burn Bright and Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner?) As a result, four of these books are repeats from last week's TBR post.
Finally, Unbuttoned has arrived at my library! Mackenzie King is one of the most intriguing Prime Ministers that Canada has ever had. He never married, he was devoted to his mother and his dog, and (as the book blurb tells us) he communed with ghosts and cavorted with prostitutes. Plus he left detailed diaries which let us in on all the weird details. (Never trust someone else to burn your journals!) There's been a long wait-list for this one and its available for me at the library!
Also, there are two more titles for my Science Fiction and Fantasy Reading Project--The Dragon Reborn and Heir to the Empire. Its great to be getting back to this project a bit more seriously and there's some fun reading ahead.
What else is new? Well, I bought a new toilet last night. I've been meaning to get one that would use less water for some time now and a notice from my condo management company got me moving on it. My current toilet was one of the originals when the building was constructed (1979) and some of them apparently have flaws which occasionally cause catastrophic failures. They are urging us to change them out asap. So, I have a date with a plumber on Monday.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
