So this is a Neo blog, huh? It looks pretty similar to my deviantART journal. Only a lot less... gray/green. I guess that's no surprise. In that case, I might as well write here what's on my dA journal.
----- I went to the local thrift store yesterday, which I haven't done in years, and I found that they had shelves upon shelves of "gently used" paperbacks selling for 15 cents apiece. Which is, for lack of a better word, awesome. I'd gladly pay 15 cents to keep a book forever than borrow it for free and return it in two weeks.
So I walked out of the thrift store with four books, which will probably be enough to last me a month, maybe longer:
Sabriel by Garth Nix The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Those last two were gambles, in a sense. Books that I'd heard of and flipped through but never took the time to read to completion. To be honest, Amber Spyglass was the only one I'd finished before.
Curious Incident was done in a matter of hours. It was short, but absorbing... even if some of the diagrams utterly lost me. Christopher has a lot of behavioral quirks (he's autistic), but that just makes him and his adventures all the more endearing. Excellent book IMO. I'm working on Sabriel now, and it's better than I remember. Plenty of exciting moments. After this it's on to Stranger in a Strange Land.
Haha, this reminds me of when I was eleven. I was a real bookworm then... xP
