Summer Reading and Library Thing

I realize that I've been absent from blogging far too long. Once again, I'm struggling with the direction of the blog. It isn't even August yet, and I'm already very tired of the campaign season. For now, I'm going to lay off of politics.

So what have I been up to lately? I've been reading quite a bit lately, and I came across a website called Library Thing. You can find my profile here. Brian and I entered nearly 200 of our books over the last few weeks, and it is pretty amazing to see our personal library online. There are a lot of features to the website, my personal favorite being the Early Reviewer Program. I already snagged an advance copy of a book set to hit shelves in August. Get this, it was free! All I have to do is review it. I'm half way done with the book (actually closer to two-thirds of the way done) and will post the review here when it is completed. It's been a lot of fun thus far, and the book is great. Bridget Jones all grown up.

I've also visited my local library a few times as well. It is amazing that despite all of the financial issues, all of the politics, all of the mismanagement Bay City, Michigan is left with a beautiful new library. You can find the website here. I found out that even my home town library (Omer, Michigan) has a website. It is amazing that a town of 300 has a library at all.

Books, books, and more books. I'm in love.

Much more later, as always.
