Whatcha Readin’?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:44 am
Laura, over at Vitamin Sea made up a new meme. As an individual with a BA in English with a concentration in British Literature…we’ll, it’s mandatory for me to do this. But the books I’ve been reading lately, and I use ‘lately’ quite loosely, aren’t the classics. Nope. They’re fiction. I’m a fiction fan. Very rarely do I read non-fiction. These are the books I have lined up to read at the moment.

This is the Tom Robbins novel that I’ve started twice and haven’t been able to finish. I’m not sure why. I love all the other books he’s written. I will finish this book…one of these days.
Another Tom Robbins book. I’ve gotten through the first chapter. But I’m stuck there. Mainly because I’m not in the mood to read right now. But I’ll get there.
My most recent Robbins book. Nick got it for me for Valentines day. My sweetie knows who I like to read!
The last of the Robbins books that I haven’t read. Yes. I bought all his books at once. I had been getting them onsie-twosie, but one day I picked up the rest with the intent to read them all. Good intentions that haven’t been realized yet.
Jennifer Weiner is another writer that I’ve read before. This is one of her new ones.
I didn’t know this one was out until I started looking for books I wanted to read. Now that I know I’ll have to read this one too!
Well, there they all are. Between running, painting my bathroom, painting my kitchen, knitting, and solving Sudoku puzzles, this is what I’ll be reading in my spare time.


  1. So, did you ever read any Tom Robbins?? HA! My book club is reading In Her Shoes, I know one of your favorites. I hear it’s a good one. Happy reading!!

  2. are we all supposed to list the books we are reading at the moment? Cuz, well, I don’t know if my blog will support that many 😛

    I think you should read a book called Ex and the Single Girl. You will giggle and have to share it with all those women in your family who look like you 😛

  6. Maybe we could change the 24 hours in a day to 30. Think of all the reading we could do! I love to read, too, but it usually gets back-burnered. I’m jealous of people who say, “I read this in one sitting!”

  8. I’m reading the Bible, War and Peace, and two nonfictions: A History of God and The Question of God. It is funny that you wrote this post today, cause I also wrote about the books I am reading.

    PS~ Make time for reading, even if it is for 15 minutes during a break at work (that is what I do).

  9. Oooooh, I’ll have to look for Tom Robbins! I forgot to add that I also have a copy of Carl Hiassen’s “Hoot”, but haven’t started it yet.
    Every so often, I’ll get hooked on a book and read late into the night, unable to put it down. Haven’t had that happen in awhile tho!

  10. Books, books, books

    I tend to work with them rather than read them.

    I don’t make the time to read enough, tis tres bad of me.
