Surprise, I’m still alive (somewhat)! I’m sorry I just disappeared without a word and haven’t been reading and commenting on your posts. But between going home for the semester break and writing term papers, I haven’t been able to concentrate on much else. And I haven’t been reading much fiction either 😦
I had to take a break from reading The End of Mr. Y, I just can’t take the frequent references to Derrida et al when I’m writing papers (or in general 😉 ). So now I’m in the middle of After the Armistice Ball by Catriona McPherson, a cosy crime which is set in Scotland after WWI, and which my mom got me. I finished Mr. Rosenblum’s List last week and I enjoyed it, but I have no idea why two blurbs said it was hilarious and funny, because this is one of the saddest books I’ve ever read. Did I miss something?
Not much else going on with me, I’m reading and writing all day and then somehow seem to spend most of my evenings at the movies. Somehow, the more people tell me how great Inception is, the less I find I like it, which is weird because I had a nice enough evening watching it (not that it was awe-inspiring or anything).
I’ll definitely be back to blogging and lots of fun reading in September but if I don’t get around to visiting your blogs until then, please don’t take it personally!
Hope you’re all having a great week! 🙂
