So it’s Monday, I figured I’d give an update with the reading.

So for the rest of this year my goal is to read this list:

  1. Quest for the Scorpion’s Jewel by Amy Green (2 days left from NetGalley)
  2. Escape from Riddler’s Pass by Amy Green (2 days left from NetGalley)
  3. Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader True Crime (7 days left from NetGalley (not the whole book) (finished)
  4. The Lifeguard by Deborah Blumenthal (11 days left from NetGalley) (not going to read it. Note to publishers using NetGalley, seriously if you want to put a copyright tag that’s fine, but make sure it’s a watermark tag and not an actual line of text that you know covers up lines in the book, so when I’m trying to read all I see is some jumbled up mash of spots for a row on the page). 
  5. Same Sex Marriage by Tricia Andryszewski (6 days left from NetGalley)
  6. Read my Lips by Debby Herbenick and Vanessa Schick (6 days left from NetGalley)
  7. Amglish in, Like Ten Easy Lessons byArthur E. Rowse (6 days left from NetGalley)
  8. Gin and Daggers: A Murder She Wrote Mystery (due back 12/21, can be renewed 1 more time) (returned it. Just wasn’t in the mood for it)
  9. Sweet Valley High: Senior Year: Can’t Stay Away by Francine Pascal (due 12/27, no more renewals)
  10. The Mistaken Masterpiece by Michael D. Beil (due 12/27, 2 more renewals)
  11. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris (due 1/3/12, no more renewals)
  12. The Two Deaths of Daniel Hays by Marcus Sakey (due 1/9/12)- Only borrowed this because I’ve watched a couple episodes of Hidden City on Travel Channel with him, and I was hooked. So I’m giving his books a try.
  13. Condor One by John Simpson (borrowed from a friend) It’s amazing the things you find when you clean, and I’ve moved up on my home reading list, all the books I’ve got borrowed from people, starting with this one. I find I want to just read it right now, but I’m giving  some of my other stuff priority. 
I’m also clearing stuff off my DVR as well. So far: I’ve watched Fraggle Rock, Clarissa Explains it All, Inside the Actors Studio with the Modern Family Cast, Ghost Adventures, 100 greatest songs of the 00’s on VH1 (parts 1 and 2), Starz Studio for TW:MD,  I’m currently watching the TSO special that had been on PBS god knows when. I started Red Factions: Origins, but not even GDL could get me to watch that awful mess.
This weekend I also cleaned. A lot. My kitchen is spotless, and my bedroom is pretty awesomely clean. living room is not, and neither is the bathroom. But I’ll get there. So I’ve started the de-clutter process from my BFST list as well.
