Yup, still not feelin' it.

So I just got back from a lovely dinner with friend S.O. (Yikes, her initials are much too similar to a much-used capitalization of a much-used word around here which MIGHT have begun this sentence. A nickname is in order. Stupid brain can't think of anything now, of course.) I hadn't seen her since Memorial Day, so we were overdue. We has a grand time chatting. I hope that starts happening more frequently.

Unfortunately that combined with browsing in Barnes & Noble for a while has totally ruined everything but my desire to READ, FASTER, THERE ARE TOO MANY TOMES ON THE LIST! I even (eeek) bought a couple, too. You don't understand the beauty of this because you do not know, but books are like crack for me. I like movies, and nothing wastes more time than VH1's I Love The 70's and Mythbusters (although, they rock, so it's not so much a waste until viewing number 2. Or 8), but hand me some good fiction or history and I am high on words in no time. So, I'll catch you on the flipside because I? Need some bedtime stories.

I agree, I can't get out of Barnes and Noble in less than two hours...

wife_of_charlespeirce shows the Myth Busters videos in her physics classes sometimes, but she also worries about the language.

I have the same problem. Any time I'm in B&N or Borders, I can't believe how many books there are I want to read, and how much I love reading, and books, and oh I simply must buy some, or all, of them.

But then I get home, and while I do love reading, I play too many video games, and don't finish enough books. Sad, but true.

Hey. I wanna recommend something.

"Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (put an imaginary accent over the 'o'). It's a detective/love/coming of age story set in 1950's Barcelona about a boy who is trying to discover why one man has been systematically destroying every copy of every book by some obscure author. Quite a page turner ... and it's all about books! There's this place called the "Cemetary of Forgotten Books" that I would probably die happily in.
