Stretch that attention span!

Dear Blog,

Just a quickie post, because I am taking a Reading Day.

I have a library book* due tomorrow, and I can't renew it. That's a good excuse, right? Well, I like it.

Besides, sometimes you just gotta read, you know? I mean something more than 140 characters at a pop. ;) Otherwise your attention span might shrink down to gnat-like proportions, and that would be sad.

Off to make a cuppa, and dive into fantastic realms.

Love,
Linda

*I would tell you which one, but I feel kind of bad that I didn't buy it. I saw it on the New Release shelf last time I was at the library, and snatched without thinking. I probably WILL buy it, because I always buy this author's books, but I figure I'll postpone that decision, in case I don't like the ending and decide to wait for the paperback.

A reading day. Love it. I think I'll make that my goal today, too. :)

Amen to that. Nothing like a computer-less day of reading!

Aaaaah. Finished my book, so I'll be able to turn it in tomorrow, and the Library Police won't have to come after me.

It was blissful. I highly recommend reading days. :)

Now I'm dying to know which book it is!

I haven't been reading as voraciously since I started blogging/tweeting, so I'm going to need to remedy that situation soon. Thanks for the reminder!

Tawna -- oh, all right. It was Jim Butcher's CHANGES. I adore his Dresden Files series. The protag, Harry Dresden, is such a smartass. For some reason that *cough* appeals to me.

And, yes, I will be buying my own copy, because I know I'm going to want to read it again to pick up on the wonderful details I may have blown by too fast yesterday.

Since The Husband has put me on a book diet (aka THERE IS NO ROOM IN THIS HOUSE FOR ONE MORE BOOK), I take almost all my reading for a spin at the library. If I really, really, really like it, I'll buy it, even though I've already read it.

Do I feel bad about it? No, because regardless of whether I buy it or check it out, I talk up the books to friends so that they'll go buy it!

Cynthia -- see, that's kinda why I didn't by this book to begin with. I really am trying not to add to my bookshelf overflow. But it's so HARD to give a good book back to the library... *sigh*
