Currently Reading (aka still reading these)

I can not believe how I'm dragging my butt on these books! it's  not like they are bad and not holding my attention, just..I don't know not in the reading mood.(again!)


The King of Attolia 

This is the third book in the series. the first book was a slow read for me , but the second book I flew through and enjoyed a lot. This book is bringing in a new character and I'm not sure what to make of him so far. Also I'm not sure what Eugenides up to either.

I'm on page 44.


Deceptions: A Cainsville novel

Also a third book in a series.

 I'm on page 25 of this one, so not to far at all. I think I may fly through this one if I just give it more of my attention. I really love the character Gabriel.

*side note - I hate this red cover on this HB copy. It makes it feel like those Contemporary Romance/Suspense books. (not that there is anything wrong with those, but it just isn't this type of story)


Amusing Ourselves to Death 

Reading this one to see if I want to add it to my son's reading list for school. I'm not that far in to it , but it so far it's interesting.

“Television is our culture's principal mode of knowing about itself. Therefore -- and this is the critical point -- how television stages the world becomes the model for how the world is properly to be staged. It is not merely that on the television screen entertainment is the metaphor for all discourse. It is that off the screen the same metaphor prevails."



Need to pick up The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats and read it before next Thursday, which is Book Club day!

*shit, I just saw some of the ratings on this one and honestly, not looking forward to reading another book that got bunches of 2 stars for a rating.  Who's picking out these bad books?!
