8 Books

18 Aug

Oh, the return of *8 Things!  (Remember, this is originally a Magpie Girl concept – please click her link in the blogroll to the right and show her some love).

8 Books On My Nightstand:
1.  Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach (currently reading)
2.  Perpetual War For Perpetual Peace by Gore Vidal (almost done, but it’s a heavy.  I have to have light reading simultaneously, hence Stiff)
3.  The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank (book swap score, next on my list)
4.  Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs (I’m addicted to his memoirs, thanks Stardust!)
5.  A Night Without Armor by Jewel (because I have to pick up a poetry book at least 5 times a week to keep living and breathing)
6.  The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran (technically already read, several times, but I’ve been picking it up again lately.)
7.  Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith (I need to read this next because I borrowed it from Manna, but the Girls’ Guide is calling as well.  We’ll see who wins.)
8.  Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (awaiting this book swap find!)

What are you reading, darlings?

*8 Things

13 Oct

As you all know, I’ve been engaging in a lot of list-making recently. The more lists I made, the more I started seeking out other listmakers. I found one blogger in particular very interesting, as she has themed her lists “*8 Things”. She encourages others to participate and link to their own *8 Things lists.

I’ve hesitated to blog any of my lists lately for one reason. I’ve been following her format and I want to link to her, tag these posts, and put her on the blogroll. But I haven’t been on the “real” internet in over a week. I got on last night, read and commented on Kibbies’ blog, and sent Fuzz “The Nastiest Jam (Of All Time)” and then my router went out… again. I gave up after that.

So it’s back to emailing my posts and I don’t even know where to tell you to look for this list-making goddess. I want to attribute the *8 Things to Magpie Girl of WordPress, but I need to get online to be certain. Until then, just know that this is not my original idea and I will link to the author of it soon. For now I want to get some of these hand-written lists outta my purse!


I have the link now, so go check out Magpie Girl.  She’s also made the blogroll, so her link will be there for future reference.  I really like her blog, and she’s got some neat things going on.  She’s going a year without buying clothes.  Can you imagine?  I feel like I never have anything to wear and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a top here and there this year.  I am nowhere near ready to pledge something like that, so props to her.
