-Thursday Thirteen...Things I Have Read This Week

1. The Bible.

2. Sherlock Holmes....the complete, unabridged collection.  I realized a couple of weeks ago that I had never actually read Sherlock Holmes and in my usual fashion bought them all!!! 

3. Orlando Sentinel, Arizona Republic, New York Times, .......well, I won't list all the newspapers that I read here, because that alone would be more than 13!  I'm a little news obsessed!

4. Survivor Manual just moved and got reorganized!

5. Killer Heat .....I wanted to be reading Lethal Legacy but I haven't gotten a copy yet, so I reread Killer Heat.  I love those Linda Fairstein books!

6. After I read a post about stranding, I had to find out more.

7. The first Julie Book.  There are all of these new American Girls that didn't exist when I was a kid.  When Katarina finishes reading one she hands it to me to read, and then asks me comprehension question the same way I do to her - I think that is her favorite part about loaning me books!

*Sidenote~Not only are there new American Girls, but Julie takes place only nine years (yes, less than a decade!) before I was born.......and now I officially feel old.  The only bright spot in this situation is that according to the books timeline, she would have been born the same year as my husband, so I comfort myself with the fact that they don't have an American Girl who is exactly my least, not yet!

8. Pearls Before Swine......the strip and the blog.

9. The Mistmantle Chronicles Book One be truthful, Katarina is reading this one to me.

10. My Sonlight Catalog

11. The program guide for my remote control....someone broke the little battery cover on the back and now every time it pops off, the batteries pop out, and I have to reprogram the it to communicate with my tv and dvd player.  *Note to self: Go buy a new remote, or at least a roll of tape to keep the battery cover on!

12. Emma by Jane Austin.  I have read this before, but it is a great reread (this has been a week with a couple of rereads) and it is also on this list of 100 that my friend, Jenny, has gotten me obsessed with.

13. Lots of emails.....that I have been a real slacker about responding to, so I should probably go do that now.....Happy Thursday Thirteen Everyone!!

  1. wow!!! You sure read a TON of books this week!

  2. Wow, you read a lot. I'm impressed. I'm a book lover too. Happy TT!

  3. I am jealous of your reading so many wonderful things. I must say, I have read the Mistmantle chronicles #1 with my boys and enjoyed it. I have always wanted to read Sherlock Holmes, but it will have to wait another decade.

  4. The Arizona Republic? LOL.

    I laughed out loud at you having to read the remote manual - now go get some duct tape and tape those batteries in place. You'll be so happy you did, lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT on my 13 Lessons for New Cat Owners and My Sympathies As Well.

    Happy TT!

  5. love #1... blessed by the Best :) Happy TT


  6. I received an award, and I'd like to pass one onto you for being a new blog I read!

  7. Email and posts can really pile up, can't they?

  8. And people think I've been reading a lot! I did a book post myself this week. You can find it here

  9. I've been too busy lately w/ kids to read much other than preschool level. You are so lucky. I love reading at bedtime, I find it so relaxing. I've pulled out some of my antique children's books to share w/ my boys. I love how they were writen, the boys like my "voices".

    Hugs & Happy TT.

  10. Wow ! you must be a wonder woman, only the bible and Sherlock Holmes would take me a year at least reading 24 h per day !

    BTW I went to you MIL last year and took the Halloween decoration pictures there, lol !

  11. Wow, you've had a busy reading week.

  12. That is a lot of reading. From another big reader :)

  13. You have a very eclectic list of reading habits.

    I have 13 Ways to Avoid Writing.

  14. That is a lot of reading! And I thought I read all the time.

    Good going. I don't think I've ever read much Sherlock Holmes, either. I should remedy that.

  15. Loved the survivor manual thing.

    Happy Thursday!

  16. Great idea for a TT. I may have to "borrow" it one Thursday. :-) Oh, and duct tape is how we keep the back on our remotes. If I had to repeatedly read those doggone program guides, someone in my house would surely get hurt!

  17. The Bible? Well done. That's really commendable. More people should be reading it nowadays; which tells me I haven't read the Bible in many years.

    I used to read Sherlock Holmes when I was insomniac 10 years ago. Happy Thursday.

  18. I followed your acupuncture link and enjoyed the post. I'm four months into acupuncture treatment for chronic knee pain and migraines. I've had enormous success with it. My knee is strong and the continual pain has subsided, and I've had it for 16 years! And the freedom from migraine pain can't actually be put into words.

  19. Great list of books, I wish I had time to read that much these days!

  20. Hey! I just bought Lethal Legacy at Half-Price Books a few weeks ago. Funnily enough, I was moving it around just an hour or so ago and thinking, "Man, I wish I could stop and read this right now."

  21. Wow. You're quite the reader. Speaking as a librarian, I approve!

    Also? I love that Validation video with TJ.

  22. Hahaha! I love number 11!! I'm not sure where mine even is anymore.

  23. That's a lot of reading! I'm not a big reader so this summer I tried to make a point of reading. I managed to get through 3 books.
    Thanks for posting on my blog.

  24. Wow! That is a whole lot of reading!

  25. Yay for the list of 100!!! We should pick out a book and read it together...and invited other people to read it with an online book club...not sure of the logistics of that, but we could at least do it between ourselves :)

  26. What??? You read all these in one week?? *jealous* I haven't had much time to read at all since starting work... I wish I could find a job that would pay me to read... =P =)

    Thanks for visiting my TT!
