Cat & Mouse

In reality, while the cat's away, the mouse will play.
Cat = my boss
Mouse = me

Here's to an easy week while they are on vacation!

It's probably going to be quiet enough that I can read in between dealing with any issues.
(I hope I'm not jinxing myself.)

I plan to swing the library either this weekend or Monday at lunch to stock up on books. Any suggestions? There's one series which seems to be taking the blogging world by storm, but I can't remember the title (I think it's young adult fiction?). I'm a big fan of finding series for which all the books are already written. I'm such a fast reader that it's frustrating to wait a year (or months) for the next book to come out and then read it in a day or two.

Heck, I like most anything except books that make me cry or put me to sleep (dry factual histories, I'm looking at you!) or which have no satisfactory resolution by the end and just sort of fizzle out leaving the reader hanging.

I'm currently working my way through a paper grocery bag full of books my Mom picked up on the 75%-off day of her local library book sale. She just grabbed piles of books off the romance table and didn't look too closely, so it's a real surprise as to what's in there. The thing is, I'd rather save those for the beach and weekends away when I might damage or lose a book, and read library books at home or at work.

With out any suggestions, I'll probably wander the aisles of the library deciding which books to get based on the spine font and color. Whatever works, right?


  1. If you've never read it, the Anne Rice vampire series is great if you're into that sort of thing.

  2. Are you thinking the Twilight series? They're all the rage these days, and I may or may not be reading the third book right now. ;)

  3. Two funny books I loved:

    Are YOu There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler.


    the three Jen Lancaster books, in order:
    Bitter is the New Black
    Bright Lights, Big Ass
    Such a Pretty Fat

    All very hilarious, sarcastic books.

  4. @Alynda:
    Twilight series...that's it! I knew it started with a "T"!
