Happy May, everyone! It’s still chilly here, not a typical Kansas May, which is in fact very irritating to me. That and the fact that my bike has disappeared, but that’s neither here nor there.
I’ve always loved reading, and when I’m not chasing around the dog these days (can’t take my eye off of him for a minute) I still try to fit in a few chapters every day. I finished those library books I wrote about last time, loved one (Empress Orchid) and thought the other was just OK (The Life and Opinions…). I’m on the waiting list for Water for Elephants but since the movie’s out, the list is rather long, so we’ll see. Everyone (like me) wants to check it out before watching the film. I’m currently working on One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, an author I like (while in Morocco, I read Love in the Time of Cholera).
One Hundred Years of Solitude is on my (drumroll) arbitrary list of 100 books I will read someday. I know, right? Well, there’s a new tab at the top of the post which I adapted from a word document that’s been sitting around on my desktop for about a year now. I don’t remember who compiled it or where I found it, but it’s a list, and I do love crossing things off lists. I want to read many or most books on it, so it’s up there. If you want to check it out every now and then to see how I’m doing, well, that’d be fun :)
Also, don’t forget to vote for me (on the right sidebar). They’ve reset their counts and with lots of votes I could break into the first page easily!
One thought on “Reading (2)”
1. I should start reading more again. Somehow after 3 months I still can’t finish Emma, or abandon it completely.
2. Your dog comments remind me of our first days with Sammy and then Gilly. Now we can relax a little more, but we definitely have to call their names to see where they’re at every so often. If it’s quiet, Gilly’s doing something bad lol. Also, the kennel has been a lifesaver. They even like it in there and go in when i stand there and say “inside!” It helps that they are kennel buddies, though. From your previous post, I have no idea how to make a dog go to the bathroom on command at first. But, after praising Gilly with the phrase “good girl go potty!” WHILE she’s going every time, she now knows what “go potty” means. :) Hope it helps! (As Sherry from yhl would say)
