Booking Through Thursday 9/18/2008 on the 19th


Autumn is starting (here in the US, anyway), and kids are heading back to school–does the changing season change your reading habits? Less time? More? Are you just in the mood for different kinds of books than you were over the summer?

One thing I missed while I was spinning my wheels yesterday was the Booking Through Thursday meme. I hate that. I don’t always answer the questions, but I do at least like to look! Fall generrally means more reading time for me, since the kids are in practice, and that measn I am held captive at the ball park for a couple hours three times per week. But this fall, I am doing more walking and talking during practice, and less reading than I did last year. And as most of you know, I am still reading magazines during practice, too. What all that means is that I am not reading as many books as I would like. Still. Though I did read on on the way home from Vegas that had me snorting with laughter.

My Horizontal Life is rip-roaringly funny in a way that only a book about sex can be. Unless you are one of those people who doesn’t get that there are very few things funnier than sex. And true, sex can can be joyful and intense and even serious, but it is also very, very funny. Seriously, take away the candle light and the lingerie, and it’s just…funny. Now I am interested to read her other book, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. It ought not to take more than 6 hours or so to read, if I can find 6 quiet ones to string together again, LOL! In real life time, it will probably take months to get through it, though.

BTW, have you noticed how the colors on uk books are so much different than the ones here? Much more subdued, as if they didn’t really on the brightness to attract readers, and instead relied on the words. Interesting concept, that.
