Archie Comics

So I am looking in one of my groups on www.goodreads.com Book Addicts and we have a list of 12 books that we want to read in 2014 as well as 4 alternates in case we get stuck. So I was looking at one person's list and someone had made the remark that their list looked like "Archie Comics" compared to this poster's list. I agree that majority of the time I feel I read stuff rather than enlightening books. But isn't it really to what we enjoy in reading that makes us happy? Why should we feel like we aren't reading the right material and who is it to say that it is the "right" material. I had a friend tell me that as she was going to college to become a writer that I read junk, mind you she read the same as I did before had. What gives you the right to decide that since you are to become a writer that I read junk? It still burns me up and that was years ago. If I didn't read junk I would have missed out on the Hunger Games and the Allegiant series too. Alas I'm listening to Emma on audio book. What a long audio, but I wanted to try "listening" to the classics a bit more and I am going to be better at attacking that 1001 Books to read before you Die list. I got that app on my i-pad. It's really nice and worth the money too.

Monday Blues

Monday has started out fabulously. Dropped my bare mineral warmth makeup this morning and the bottom broke out of the container all over the floor. Had to vacuum that up. What a waste. Had to open a new container, thank goodness to my friend Ashley who had given me her un-opened one a while back. Then I get to work to talk to crazy people who want to talk my ear off. I'm not ready for that in the morning, but I'm the only one here today and tomorrow to take the calls so that's what I'll do. I just had to post this on my blog-see how good I am? I realized that I should be able to rant and rave if I want to about ordinary life. I started playing a game on my ipad last night that I think is going to be very addicting. It's called Hill Climber Racing.

Another year almost gone............

And goodreads emailed me to tell me I've read 30 books this year. What a shame. But as you can tell with a little tweaking that I've done I'm getting myself ready for some more challenges ahead. 2014 Crusin' Through the Cozies, 2014 Book Addicts Reading Challenge, Goodreads Choice Book Awards group. As well as hopefully adding a 24 credit audible membership on by the end of the year. I always try to listen to an audio book driving back and forth to work. 1 hr a day is not bad. Plus I plan on getting my exercise groove back too. Gotta lose some weight. I really don't know how people do it blogging. But as always I am going to try harder.
