Book Club: 2009 List (so far)

Read So Far in 2009:
James & the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl (Yes, this is a school selection)
Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell (audiobook)
He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt & Liz Tuccillo
The Treasures of Weatherby by Zilpha Keatley Snyder (school)
Unnatural Causes by P.D. James
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Who Was Martin Luther King, Jr.? by Bonnie Bader
Marked by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs
Horns and Wrinkles by Joseph Helgerson

Currently I'm reading:
The Anglo-Files: A Field Guide to the British by Sarah Lyall (STILL!)-- I have made some progress on this, and hope to have it done before my UK trip this summer.

Betrayed by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast-- I just can't get into this one like the first one...

Break No Bones was the first of the books from the series that inspired the TV show Bones that I have read. I wasn't very impressed. I LOVE the show-- but the characters are VERY different in the books. I have another one from the Brennan series to read this summer... so we'll see. Hopefully I will be adding several books to my list over the next several weeks-- since school will be out I will have more time to read... plus some transatlantic flights will help.

My Random Thought for the Day...

On the way back from tap tonight I was listening to WUOT... and they played some song performed by the UT Wind Ensemble. Have you ever listened to a piece of music and thought to yourself, "How the heck did this ever get written? Who thought that this combination of 'plinks', 'honks', and 'screeches' works well together..."

I don't know which piece this was-- didn't catch the name. And being a former band nerd, I recognize and appreciate the difficulty of the piece. But I did not enjoy it, would not want to hear it again, nor do I think I would, with time, change my mind.

To each his own, I guess...


I usually just delete it without looking... but this subject line caught my eye today-

Turn your meat battleship on!
