You want to know what I hate?

SUMMER! It is too hot and everyone is so busy even though they don't think they will be. I don't ever feel like reading. I just want to vegitate because doing anything that takes anymore energy creates body heat and I DON'T WANT TO FEEL ANY HOTTER.

What kind of reading do you enjoy in the summer?
Have you been reading anything good lately?


  1. I'm reading GIRL OVERBOARD--I started it when it was REALLY hot here... the snowboarding talk is helping somehow. It's great!

  2. I hate summer, too and feel the same way. even with all the fans on, i just can't get cool enough. I miss winter.

  3. Summer bites! I'm currently roasting in my office (I'm furthest from the air conditioner) I much rather have fall or spring or even winter! Ahh! I'm hoping to read a lot of YA this summer. :)

  4. I definitely hate summer, especially days here where I am today and it's looking like it's going to rain again...I'm getting ready to read Ann Patchett's Bel Canto.

Fun Friday

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Repost – My FAVORITE Actor

This is a repost of a blog I did about a year ago. I decided to repost it because I wrote this early on in my exposure to comic books and graphic novels and because, as you will read, it features my favorite actor of all time. When I told a friend I was reading Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton, he brought to my attention that it was also a movie and the movie happened to have Nicolas Cage in it. I highly dislike Nicolas Cage and I think my friend likes to bring up his name as much as possible just to annoy me. (why would anyone EVER want to do that? He must have a death wish.)

But I actually appreciated it this time. It has been interesting to read about the movie in which Cage plays the minor role of Smokey Bennett. It was also brought to my attention that Nick Cage isn't Nick Cage at all, but Nicolas Kim Copula. I remember vaguely hearing in the past, since he is the nephew of Francis Ford Copula. Who happen to direct Rumble Fish and The Outsiders. Cage was asked to help out his uncle…

Short Story Saturday - The Machine Stops Part 1

I was first exposed to "The Machine Stops" by E.M. Forster through a book called Scraps of the Untainted Sky. The title of the book, in fact, comes from the closing line of the short story, which the author considers to be "one of the first instance of dystopian narrative." I purchased this book several years ago in order to gain insight into my interest in dystopic literature.This interest has been newly rekindled and broadened into science fiction in general. If you call yourself a fan of science fiction and you haven't read this story, do so now or you are a fraud. If you think you don't like science fiction, I suggest you read this story and make sure. (Audio and full text are available online for free.)This short story, if you can classify it as such at 12,000 words, has 3 chapters and was published in 1909. The date of publication is overwhelming when one takes into consideration how many technological advances the author was able to predict. The…
