Library Loot of some kind

Posted: February 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

I thought I would do a library loot post post but I am too tired to format anything and link. Now I know what dead tired actually means. I mean I want to write up reviews. I want to participate  and link up my reviews for challenges and I know how badly I want to read all my fav blogs and comment .But the energy level is zero.

Let me just show you the books I borrowed from the library. There is quite a variety and I used my card as well as my sister’s to check out books 🙂

These two graphic novels were in the new arrivals section of my library. I pounced on them . Literally did. 🙂

Push was an obvious choice because of the movie Precious , which I want to watch soon.

The Magician’s Guild was my librarian’s recommendation. She thought I  might enjoy it.It’s a part of the trilogy and the blurb sounds good.

I had a list of recommendations from my best friend and he insisted I read these books especially History Of Love and Night Train  To Lisbon . I was  lucky to find most of them but a few on the list were already issued so I need to wait till they are returned to the library. Till then I need to finish this mountain of books.Two of these are re reads but I enjoyed them so much first time round that I couldn’t help getting them.

Aren’t some of these covers gorgeous..

Staying away from blogging for a month I realised how much I missed this place and all you lovely people. Now that I decided I want to make a comeback, I don’t know where to start !

Let me tell you I have been with my textbooks for more than a month and exams did take a toll on me. I have lost nearly  5 kgs of weight  🙂 No , I am serious. I  know that’s not normal.But for me exams means , don’t eat just read . At least Post Graduate Medical entrances mean that. So all I am allowed to do now is eat and read and watch TV. TV , I am bored of already and books, I haven’t got any that are making me want to read.

Now I need suggestions for light reading. My sis got me Pirate Latitudes and Name Of The Wind .( love her for understanding that I can’t go to the library and be overwhelmed) But I need some light reads. Can you guys help me ? Need suggestions for books that can get me out of  the exam mood ..

Laziness at its best

I was bitten by challenge bug a few months back when I decided to participate in as many 6 challenges. I know it was a foolish act.I should have only taken up as many challenges as I could handle. Something inside told me to go ahead. I started off well but in between I lost the urge to read  the book  for sake of enjoying it rather I started reading it to just complete the challenge. Big mistake. I just couldn’t resist such great challenges.Then after sometime when I took a break and started reading again I just read without writing reviews for the books I completed. Result being a  pending posts for nearly 35 books.

On a happier note I have completed most of  my challenges but am lazy ( read supremely lazy ) to write the reviews.So here I am looking it a huge  pile of completed books which I have got to review and I am too lazy to type it all. ( Its a tough job you know)  You must be wondering how can anybody be so lazy . But then you haven’t met me 🙂

I know I will crib and whine for some time but I will get it all done and hopefully soon .

Lesson to be learnt : Take part in challenges that are perpetual , without a deadline. In that case you have a lifetime to write the review 🙂

Told you laziness at its best 😉

I am back !!!!

Posted: October 19, 2009 in Uncategorized

I am back after a long long hiatus. Reason for this break was that I was caught up in a project that took away most of my time and also had a horrid case of allergic bronchitis lasting a few months which made me totally negligent towards this blog.

Now , I want to get back to reading , blogging and commenting which I missed so much over these few months.I have missed out reading for all those challenges I signed up for . I wanna start fresh now and have a few very interesting books lined up..
