i'm struggling with my boredom lately. trying to write every day here has been both more and less of a challenge than I'd thought. Its easier than I thought because I am a good bullshitter. and its harder because I try not to give into my baser instincts, most of the time. I also want to impress myself, be proud of what I write, or see if I can make my husband laugh out loud. But everyday the kids go down for a nap, IF they do... I sit here and browse and browse and really, don't think I'm all the better for it. Feel mostly bored, wait around for someone to post something on one of the blogs I already follow and my god, even this right here, as I type, is boring.
but what i do know is that I will never have a television in my bedroom and that I am starved for books... please please. tell me something good to read. that the library has, so it can't be too new. or your favorite book, or the most interesting story of late. and then I can fill my time with something besides browsing and maybe fill my head with something to write about.

Ummm...yeah, I read the WHOLE Twilight saga recently. Quite a feat given the fact that I have zero free time and the books are like 500+ pages each but I do nurse A LOT. I'm not saying they are even close to being well-written but the story kind of gets you. Do you prefer fiction or non?

i read the first one of those books, sam and while i liked it, it didn't keep my interest enough to read another one... i like both fiction and non, as long as its well done. :) otherwise, unpicky. hahahahahahaha...

So Long, See You Tomorrow, by William Maxwell. Beautiful book.

Two books I recently read that stayed with me:

Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant - could not stop reading it

Waiting for Columbus by Thomas Trofimuk - a tiny bit sluggish a very few times, definitely worth reading to the last third and ending.

I just found your blog. Thank you for sharing.

(And, I have always refused to have a tv in my bedroom, even though sometimes I'm desperate for some mind-numbing brain-filling background noise.)
