I’ve been sick…

May 28, 2008 at 10:03 pm (Book Reviews)

I’ve been sick for the past few days and I’ll probably be sick through the weekend. I come home from work, pass out, then get up for a couple of hours, pass out again, get up, go to work… a lot of sleeping involved. I get sick a lot so I can’t take time off from work for something like this (sore throat, runny nose, worn out) but I sure wish I could. So I’ve not been reading a whole lot, although I am doing some reading at work. I’ve got a couple of books I want to review that I’ve read, but for now, I thought I’d list the books that I reviewed for Paperspine this month.

Un Lun Dun by China Mieville – does it make me a bad reader that I kept thinking “This would make a delightful animated movie?”

Nobody’s Princess by Esther Friesner – Helen of Troy’s younger years

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin – I liked this one a lot better than I thought I would. Nearly brought me to tears.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – I think that I might be the last book blogger to read this book. Very good. Did you know I lived in Germany for a few years?

If you’ve reviewed any of these books, please comment on the post reviewing it. Let me know where your review is and I’ll link back to it.

    Hope you feel better! I read The Book Thief and loved it–too lazy (and short on time) to leave a link right now. πŸ˜‰

    >>does it make me a bad reader?<<

    No, I think it is great!

    and I haven’t read The Book Thief yet. It keeps getting pushed further down the list, too. This may move it back up a little.

    HOpe you feel better soon!
