Summer Book List.

Idea was taken from Katie, whose book list seemed nifty enough that I figured hey, why not? Since I will likely loose a book list written on paper, I have typed it here; and since this is public, perhaps that fact will persuade me into finishing each book so as not to embarrass my knowledge-less self in--*checks calendar*--three months or so. So, thank you, katiethewriter, for publicizing ideas that I might shuffle away with!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Physical Science Text
Earth Science Text
The Language Instinct
Space Odyssey
Anna Karenina

I'll be proud of myself if I get through half of those. ...Don't look at me that way --those feckers are THICK! (And the words are wee.) I really don't intend to spend my days drinking coffee and laying around reading. I believe astronomy classes and trips to the gym and LONG, LONG periods of writing will be dominating my summer.

Extended List for if I finish List #1:

Zoe Caldwell --have no idea what it is about, but the cover is nice. Was a gift.
Interview With the Vampire --no, I haven't read it, damn it.
The Silmarillion --no, I haven't read this yet either.
Misery --I HATE not finishing books. I've honestly been slogging my way through this since I was 11 years old. It's interesting, but somehow, I am always, always am dragged away from it.

There you have it! I had no idea that my factual books came so very before my fictional books until after I finished writing that. Eh. *pounces on catnip mouse and waits nicely for A Bittersweet Potion to be updated*

And thanks very much to those of you who commented on my sad-sad. Made me happy-happy!

Nope, haven't read Interview. Been sitting on my shelf for a good long year or two (it's all gold and shiny and looks so very nice!). But I am always distracted my other books and, of course, fanfictions.

Hm, yes, the Silmarillion is a tough one. I have started it twice, but I have heard that it gets better and flows easier as you get into the book. A very interesting one, I think, just a bit difficult.
(Yay for LOTR!)

*waits in AGONY for Bittersweet Potion*

Reading. Reading things other than fanfics? *shocked* I'll have to try that sometime! :P

ARGH, and there are so many novels I want to read but then I always find a good fanfic that I end up reading first. Stupid good fanfic writers!

And on that note:
Where is ABP when you need it?! Wah. I'm going through withdrawal. :(

I agree! It is HARD, HARD, HARD to pull away from fanfic long enough to read a book, which is why I organized my reading this way--so that I have something to look back to in order to keep myself on my toes!

*clings to ABP wishing desperately for more*

Well, don't feel bad for not reading Interview... I'm only just starting LotR... And I haven't read Interview... (I didn't even know there was a book... I thought it was only a movie. *blush*)

And I'm glad I've helped you out with starting a reading list. There's a bunch more books I wanna read (namely the BBC list books that I haven't read yet) but they're on second and third tiers in my listing...

*wanders off to read more of the Hobbit...*

Heh, well I hadn't known it was a movie until a couple years ago!

Yes, I am eager to read bunches of the BBC books myself, but so many an so little time and all that...

*waves Hobbit flag*

Just so you know, I friended you back. Nice to meet you!
