Please update your feed readers! And pardon the construction while I take care of some housekeeping and design issues! :-)

Switching domains

I just bought somereads.com, so very soon, I will be moving this blog to a Word Press blog. Yay! Now I will be able to update more easily, I think...I hope...

I had so much fun cheerleading yesterday. It got me through a very long Saturday workday! I think I did at least double the time I had signed up for - go me!

I didn't get to read more than a couple of pages before falling asleep last night. But I did get to do some fabulous stargazing at a nearby state park, so all was well.

I hope everyone had a fantastic time reading yesterday. I hope that in the spring I won't be scheduled to work that day; if I am, I may switch Saturdays with someone so I can participate. Otherwise, you can bet I'll be there cheering all of you on again!

Readathon blues

Thanks so much for the comments I've gotten, y'all! To answer the question, no, unfortunately I'm not reading in the readathon. Alas, I am working 9-6 today with plans for the evening. I am having fun cheerleading, though, and I may be able to fit in some reading later tonight. (Who am I kidding? Of course I'll fit in reading, even if I do fall asleep after 1 page!)

I've got a few minutes off the reference desk, so I'm going to go visit some more blogs. Keep up the good work everyone and have fun!

I know, I've said this before, but I'll say it again. I really want to start posting to this blog again (can't believe I haven't updated since June...). Thing is, I hate writing book reviews. Any suggestions? I'd like to share what I'm reading/have read, but I need a short format.

Let's start with the past week or so. Here's what I've finished/started.

The Ragwitch by Garth Nix - liked it a lot
Rose by Any Other Name by Maureen McCarthy - liked it way more than I was expecting to!
Hard Gold: The Colorado Gold Rush of 1859: A Tale of the Old West by Avi (advanced reader copy) - kept my interest, but it was kind of boring at times. I don't think I would have liked it all that much as a kid, and I've always liked historical fiction.

I'm currently reading Waves by Sharon Dogar (advanced reader copy). I'm liking this one so far, about 75 pages in.

Next 3 on my list: Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson, Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and then The Disappeared by Gloria Whelan

Baby steps. :-)
