    Reading through Four Decades of Magic, the essay collection about WDW's 40th anniversary with the greats online WDW historians. Highly recommended!

    Awww! That's on my bookshelf. I've read it like 6 times. I used to do Nanowrimo and Script Frenzy every year. This year, though, with school and work.... Nursing school is kinda' kicking my butt...

    So somehow in between clinicals, school, and work (and my clinical schedule is now every Friday/Saturday I work, so I go to class Thursday night, work that night, go home sleep for 4 hours, go to clinicals, come home sleep for 1 hour, go to work and repeat) I carved in minutes here and there to read the fourth in the "Mortal Instruments" series. So "Mortal Instruments: City of Fallen Angels," good but... eh. I wanted a Simon story and everytime Clary and Jace whine to each other I find my med surg book really interesting.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    finished As I Lay Dying, and I loved it! although I'm not sure I would have been able to follow it were I not reading it for school and discussing it in class.


    I'm also halfway through Much Ado About Nothing, and still chugging along through The Book Thief. hopefully I can finish it this weekend.

    I'm currently reading The Ax by Donald E. Westlake and also 100 Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia by Sharon Ostalecki, PhD and Martin S. Tamler, MD, FAAPMR (since the doc thinks I have this I figured I'd find out a little more about it).

    I finished reading 'Kingdom Keepers IV: Power Play' yesterday night. Your life is not complete until you've read the KK series.

    finished The Book Thief. Beyond excellent! I wept. I actually miss it right now. lol.

    also read The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. godawful. hated it.



    finishing Much Ado About Nothing tonight or tomorrow, and starting Jhumpa Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth, which I'm excited for. I loved her other compilation of short stories Interpreter of Maladies (which won a Pulitzer!) and her novel The Namesake.

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    I tried reading the strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and put it down before I even got halfway done with it. I dunno what it is but for some reason old british english really bugs that crap out of me.

    Im about to start "on the beach" its about a family starting a new life in australia after most of the world was destroyed in a nuclear war. I might save for the trip to DLP but well see if I can hold off into then lol

    Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe.

    A terrific read filled with funny truths and tales by a truly nice, smart, polite fellow Springsteen fan.

    I hear ya on this one. Utterly unimpressed with that "classic". It might have been a creepy, 'what-if' type story back in the days, but now it's lame and silly.

    I recently finished Angelas Ashes by Frank McCourt. Excellent book. I laughed a few times and felt genuinely sorry for him the entire time. I will definitely be reading the sequel, 'Tis.


    I am currently reading Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin. It was writtenin the 50s by a white journalist who darkened his skin color (through meds and makeup) to get a better view of what African Americans were going through in the racially-charged deep South.

    WHAT!? You didn't like the first one?

    And yes, they do get better.
