Weekend Update

This week:
I finished The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen and now I can hardly stand that I have to wait for the next in the series. It’s very good. I decided I need a break from crime fiction and picked up the first book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It’s The Lightning Thief and I have to say I think I was hooked as soon as I saw that the title of the first chapter is “I accidentally vaporize my Pre-Algebra teacher”.

For my audiobook I’m still listening to The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party by Alexander McCall Smith. I should finish that up today since I’ve got some driving to do today. I haven’t decided for sure what’s next. I updated my ipod last night with a new set of books so I’ll go with whatever whim strikes when I finish the current one.

Other than books and reading:
For feeling like I’ve been busy I really don’t have a lot to show for it beyond a bunch of to do lists that seem to grow as fast as I check things off. I’m counting down the days until college football starts. It’s been a long football-less few months.

I finally got Photoshop CS5 so now I need to get it loaded on my computer and start playing with the tutorials. That was one of my goals this year that I’ve been saving for and I’m happy to have met that first part of the goal in actually getting the software. I’m looking forward to learning and playing. Maybe I’ll finally get around to doing something with the photos from our vacation at the coast earlier this month.

Added to my TBR List (To Be Read) this week:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
 Ready Player One by Ernest Cline<br />
I’ve seen enough chat from folks I trust about this one to decide to add it to my list. I think I’m going to wait until the library has the audio version though.

Purchased this week:
I didn’t buy anything this week. I’m trying to not get distracted by the shiny new stuff long enough to read a few that I already have and catch up on a few review books I’ve committed to reading.

I know I said I wasn’t going to check out books from the library beyond the one I already had, but I’m a victim of the hold list. I’ve been on the waiting list for Turn of Mind and it came in this week. Now I just need to get it read before it’s due back. I’m hedging my bets and keeping my name on the waiting list at the other library just in case.

Have a great weekend!!
