Got a bit sidetracked!

Well I said my next read would be one by Anna Maxted, which yes I started it today too, but I also picked up and started "Best Tales Of Texas Ghosts". By Docia Williams. OMG!! GOOOOOD book. If you are into real ghost tales, this is one for you. I have recently in the past two or three years really been into the supernatural, and I love reading about places that are really haunted, and so I am really enjoyingthis one, I started it this afternoon and couldn't put it down for over two hours!!! I just read and read and read! It's been a while since a book has caught my attention like that.

So, while I am still on track with the Maxted book I also couldn't help myself by starting the ghost tales too. Yay! I incorporated some non fiction into my reading diet! This hardly ever happens, but I think maybe I will add that to my list of personal challenges for this read three or four non fiction books. Yes, I think I will...

Welcome to Temptation

Right now I am reading Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie. It has actually been a fast read...I only have 10 or so pages left of this book. I would give it a C. It is a run of the mill romance, which I used to be a big fan of, but have not been much into since I started getting into book blogs. There seems to be so many more great books with real plots out there.

Up next is "Being Committed" by Anna Maxted. This will be my first novel by this author. It seems interesting, from what I can see. Like some good light reading.

I am also in the midddle of "Emma" by Jane Austen. This is the first book for my Jane Austen Personal Challenge. Although I must admit, I have not picked that one up for a bit. I got wrapped up in Welcome to Temptation and need to get back to it.

So far this year I have read 1746 pages.

Still reading.

I am now reading my 6th book for the year, and we are only barely coming up on the end of the second month of the year. i am seriously trying to stay off the computer, for the most part, although my pension for beigna couch potato isn't helping.

My problem with the computer, is I get stuck on all those dumb social sites, like myspace, or facebook,and then I start chatting with people, and there go several hours of my days! I think I have decided that this year I am going to try to focus more on my blogs, (reading and writing) rather than mess around on those sites. Yes, they are fun, but they are interfereing with some of my favorite other things I love to do. Such as Cross stitch, and involving myself in that blogging community as well as reading and sort of being a part of this community, though I have yet to break into the community as much as I just sorta lurk around the edges and check out what everyone is doing. There are a lot of great books out there!

And I own a lot of them, seeing as how when I read about a great book on here, I often times will go and order it, so I have piles of TBR books, and yet hardly make a dent in the pile, because I am soooo busy messing around talking to people. Or playing around on other sites. this year I am going to try to blog my books alot better. That said, when I get home from work today I plan to to just that, let you in on what I've been reading and tell you a bit about them for now, I must be going.
