Where is everyone???

Oh well, I figured here would could talk about anything we wanted whether it is book related or not.

First thing's first, one of our memebers has just created her own group here on GR so if you are interested take a look at Megan's new group Sci-Fi Smut
http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4...

Also, I thought it was funny that my husband called me because he found a book and wanted to know if I have ever heard of it. It was To Kill a Mockingbird! I just couldn't believe he has never heard of it! I just thought that was amazing!!! What did he have to read in school? Or maybe he should have went to class more often! LOL

Anyway, please share your thoughts, ideas, rants, raves, etc....

Also, if you have a blog please post ur updates so we can check it out. If a lot of memebers have blogs maybe we can open up a whole new thread for that but let's get this rolling first!

Diane  (dianedj) Hi Donna, thank you for the invitation join the group.

As for your husband, I guess you need to have a talk with him about Scout, Atticus, Bo, and Jem! LOL.

It is crazy that he didn't know about this book!


message 4: by Molly (new)

Molly (mollystoddart) It has been really quite around her lately :) My spring break is next week and I really just want to sleep and read, because I haven't had time for either!

I have been too tired lately as well. It is this winter weather! I think we are all in hibernation!!! Or at least wish it!


message 6: by Diane (new)

Diane  (dianedj) Glad to hear everyone is in the winter hibernation mood. I would love to be at home with a cup of tea and The Kitchen House. Good news is that next weekend (3/13) we turn the clocks ahead. No more dark at 5:30!

message 8: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 140 comments It sounds like you need a trip out here to Arizona where the weather is just prefect right now and the hardest part is keeping my kids inside long enough for me to get anything done.

Of course Megan. Did you have fun at the aprade?? I actually got to go out afterwards. I was home by 7 tho! It was a cold one!!!!


message 12: by I'm awesoMEGAN! (new)

I'm awesoMEGAN! (missesmh) | 161 comments It was so cold and I was sick, I didn't keep the baby out for too long. Went to my mom's and rested for a bit until the parade was over and everyone came back.

Donna (dfiggz) | 3116 comments Mod
My poor girls. Vinni fell asleep in the stroller during the parade so I had her in a blanket and Marley just did not want her jacket on because it wasn't green! So we had a sweater and a scarf on her!

What the hell happened to Spring??????


message 16: by Babs (new)

Babs | 258 comments LOL Ah, how quickly we forget! March is always a tease month! It always is soooo frustrating too...we had a 70 degree day here a week and a half ago and ever since we've been back to 30's and 40's. I'll be happy with 40's and 50's for awhile cause I know I hate it when it starts getting into the 80's and 90's with humidity. Hang it! It's coming! Ever so slowly.

I'm leaving the beach so I want to enjoy it while I can and this weather rea;;y isn't helping much!! LOL


message 18: by I'm awesoMEGAN! (new)

I'm awesoMEGAN! (missesmh) | 161 comments yeah this weather is craptastic lately. Hello .... Spring .... are you there??


message 19: by Babs (new)

Babs | 258 comments Oh! Everyone must be delighted this morning! Rain and snow in this neck of the woods! Ah, but the forecast promises temps into the 50's next week! That will be nice if it doesn't rain. But just think of how great the pollen season is going to be with all this rain and moisture! Something to look forward to for sure.


message 20: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 140 comments I think I might enjoy rain a little after a hundred degree day.


message 21: by Babs (last edited Apr 02, 2011 01:44AM) (new)

Babs | 258 comments Oh yeah! I agree....take cold to heat any day. Went to college in the midwest....they say they didn't have the humidity but I believe when it's 100 it's HOT.... humidity or not!

Jusat wanted to share my misery!

1- I finalyl splurged and brought 5 pairs of dress pants for work (prepaing for my MLIS) and put them in the cleaners for some hemming and the place went on fire!

2- Have to do a 10 page paper on working legalling witihn the US (My HR library class). Did the prentation already though. Paper due 5/26

3- Have to do a 15 page paper with 20 annotated bibliographies (not included in the 15 pgs) on Cellulose Nitrate film for my preservation and conservation class. Paper due 5/23

4- Just got hit with another paper to do for the same preservation class. This is a 5 page paper on disaster planning.

5- Trying to get out of my lease because my husband got a Superintedent job and now I am leaving my beach fron apartment for a basement in NYC!

6- I will be leaving my family (but only 40 mins drive away) And the best cheap daycare ever!!!!

**POSITIVES**

1- Once papers are done at the end of this month I will offically have my Masters in Library and Info. Science!

2- Once I move I will not have to pay rent anymore and I will be living in the coolsest place in all of Manhattan.

3- My commute to work will only be 20 mins (it takes my 1.5 hrs now - but thats when I did most my reading)

Oh well I am getting a headache LOL

I am really trying to clean out my bookshelves. Well, I would like to read them first then swap them at GR swap or whatever but I just keep buying more and my reading is totally less than at a snail's pace!

Once I read a book , if I don't give it 5 stars, then I will swap it out. I have been trying to catalog my books and even though I got rid of a lot, I still have around 630 to 650. (I had 800 at one time!)

And no I still will not get a Kindle lol


message 42: by Babs (new)

Babs | 258 comments Donna...I received a Kindle as a gift and I'm loving it. I must admit if I find a book by a favorite author and one that sounds like one I'd want in hardcopy then I purchase it...the books of lesser interest never accumulate on my shelf! 800 books! wow and I thought I had too many with just a couple hundred. You either have a large house or lots of book shelves!


message 43: by Donna, The Pusher (new)

Donna (dfiggz) | 3116 comments Mod
Neither lol I just moved from a large apt. to a very small one in the city so right now they are everywhere. But I am down to about 630...

Was looking for my next in line to read book I am Number Four but I can't find it!!! Since i moved we have yet to get a new book shelf or hang up the other oens I have so my books are still piled high on chairs and tables and against the wall but I jsut recently brought it so I am not understanding where it is.

So now I have to read something else....


message 45: by Katie (new)

Katie Russell | 140 comments Donna I saw a great idea on pinterest for bookshelves it was using spice racks from ikea and it looks like a great idea for small spaces.


message 46: by Donna, The Pusher (new)

Donna (dfiggz) | 3116 comments Mod
Hmmmm...??? I will def check it out. It sounds kinda cool! THX!


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

Hello all. I fell upon your group because I started reading The Night Circus yesterday. I looked over your books that you have discussed and am intrigued by many. I look forward to chatting with you guys about this book and more to come.
