Spring is coming (I just know it is)

Hey. You've probably noticed that I'm not writing regularly in my blogs anymore. There's a reason for that -- the winter blahs. It's been a really difficult couple of months (since mid January). With not much going on, there's not been much to write. And I've noticed that I prefer reading to writing. Here is a list of the books that I've read since January, in the order I read them:

"Ella Minnow Pea" by Mark Dunn

"I am a Mother" by Jane Clayson Johnson

"The Careful Use of Compliments" by Alexander McCall Smith

"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch

"The Right Attitude to Rain" by Alexander McCall Smith

"No Graves as Yet" by Anne Perry (1st in her WWI novel series)

"Shoulder the Sky" by Anne Perry (2nd in her WWI series)

"The Twisted Root" by Anne Perry (from her William Monk detective series)

I started "Blessings" by Anna Quindlen, but it did NOT pass the modern prude vocabulary test.

I also tried "Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver but it didn't hold my attention. (No modern prude issues as far as I got.)

"The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday" by Alexander McCall Smith

"Angels in the Gloom" by Anne Perry (3rd in her WWI series)

At the moment I'm reading, "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria Augusta Trapp.

There you have it. Lots of reading reasons for why I haven't written. I can't guarantee that I'll be posting again soon. You just never know.

What is with these winter blahs? We all seem to have them and it's just not right. Maybe we do need to plan a fun getaway in the middle of winter. I am sad you didn't like Poisonwood Bible. You must stick with it. It gets better. And what a bad friend I am! To have a birthday and not even be recognized. I am so sorry. I will rush a present ASAP. I didn't even turn March over until today. Please forgive me!

Great list, Christie! Because I'm a McCall Smith fan (never start a sentence with because), I'm most interested in reading Comforts of a Muddy Saturday and The Right Attitude to Rain.

Blah, blah, blah. Me, too. I haven't been as lucky as you though with the being able to read through it. Sigh. Spring is coming. Right?
