I bought…I think 8 novellas this weekend and read 3 1/2 of them. 4 were Harlequin Undones and 4 were Samhain books. I also bought a Julie James book, I think. Really, I need to stay off the internet where I’m bombarded with books, say, “Oh, that sounds good,” and then I go buy them.

I have decided urban fantasy isn’t for me. I started reading Julie Kenner’s first UF and just didn’t get into it. Glad I didn’t buy the whole series.

I’m also not a huge paranormal fan. I started Original Sin by Allison Brennan, and can’t get into it, either, though I’ll give it more time. I think I just don’t have it in me to stick with a complex plot.

Saturday night when we came home from dinner, I was really relaxed and ready for bed, but I put on The Proposal (streaming from Netflix FTW) because I needed to write 100 more words to reach my goal. I ended up watching until the end at 12:30!

Last night the dh and I watched 9, that odd little animated film that came out last year. And I mean odd. It didn’t end like I expected at all. In fact, I’m not sure what exactly happened. It was pretty much the same plot as Terminator, though.

Then I watched an Antarctica documentary which was a little too graphic for my taste. I wish I was getting Sherlock Holmes tomorrow, but Netflix won’t release it for 28 days because of Warner Brothers. I’d say I’d buy it, but I’ve not seen it and don’t know if it’s worth it. Also, that’s exactly what WB wants, now, isn’t it?

4 more days until Clash of the Titans!

    I need to stay out of bookstores the way you need to stay offline. we go each week so of course I buy stuff bt my TBR pile is towering.Then there are the ebooks for my subway ride. I guess I've got the book equivalent of the eyes being bigger than the stomach (or whatever that expression is).

    Yes! Me, too! And now they're saying the publishers are raising the prices of books and I'm wondering if I should preorder at the current price!
