All Is Not Right With the World

All is not right with the world.

I know this must be so because today I realized that it is December 11th and I have not read a single book in December.

Not even part of a book.



This me not reading thing is so odd I don’t even know what to say about it.

I do, however, know what to do about it.DSCN6382

I have already picked Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb back off the bookshelf for a re-read. I’m two chapters in and I can practically feel the universe coming back into order.

Then, I’m going to ask all you lovely people what I should read next.

I’ll take those suggestions straight to my inter-library loan website and I’m sure by this time tomorrow the world will be right again.

Now excuse me, I’m off to see what Fitz does next…

    Have you tried John Flanagan’s Ranger’s Apprentice series yet? If not, you can try that.

    On the way out the door to pick up our son from preschool, I usually take a book with me to read for the few minutes I’m waiting. A month or so ago I grabbed one of my wife’s books by mistake. When she saw what I was reading she said ‘Thats a girlie book you’re not going to like that.’ I read it anyway, it’s ‘The Ginger Tree’ by Oswald Wynd. It’s very good.

      A “girlie” book that is deemed “very good” by a man? Sounds awesome, thank you!

      I got it, I was enjoying it, I was 3/4 of the way through it, and Clara threw up on it. I had to buy it from the library and now I have to inter-library loan another copy so I can find out how it ends! I was enjoying it though – a different setting than you normally find.

        Toddler vomit on the library book, I hate when that happens!

        I found out that there had been a miniseries made years ago based on the book. I checked who starred in it, not someone who i would have expected at all, which kind of ruined it a little while I read it.

    I would be lost without a book, buying English books in Italy is very expensive, I would be lost without my e book reader.

    I’m reading “The Smartest Kids in the World” by Amanda Ripley on recommendation. It’s very readable and makes me want to dictate how schools should be administered. “Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight” by Alexandra Fuller has a mind boggling amount of family dysfunction set in Africa. I liked it because it made me seem so normal in comparison. “You are a Lion and Other Fun Yoga Poses” is for the kids because I couldn’t find a picture book on kick boxing. “One Gorilla” is a match for “Count the Monkeys.” And then there is “Frog Song” which has amazing illustrations along with frog science. Thanks for asking!
