Themed Reading

On Tuesday I found a lovely post at Pages Turned about themed reading. Then there was one on Bookgirl's Nightstand, and this morning I saw one at Book Haven. So, being the follower that I am, I decided to do one too! I started with the stacks of books in the living room, and drew just a few from the stacks in the bedroom. I did not look at the books in the spare room. I made a few little lists, and then suddenly I was overwhelmed by all the excellent reading choices IN MY HOUSE. So I'm going to make this post and then turn off my computer until tonight. That's right. I'm gonna turn it off ALL DAY. I will not turn it back on until it is dark outside. (Good thing it's not tomorrow yet, when it's daylight LONGER.) Hopefully I won't get too distracted by the crocheting project I started last night. ( I am obsessed with this blog, and so taught myself the necessary crochet stitches last night so that I could play along.)

While I was at it, I neatened up the stacks on the endtable. Here's how it looks today. Yes, there are more books behind the front stack.
Isn't that a cute little boy? (Sorry, got sidetracked.)

So, here's my themed lists:

  1. I love the Rachel Caine weather warden series. Neat stuff. Happy reading!

    To further add to your lists and the hell of Mt. TBR (especially when it falls over), be sure to check out my friend Antheras at Eclectic Closet -- I devoted a blog entry to her yesterday; she's celebrating Small Press Month. Neat stuff she's finding!

  2. Hi Lisa - Great lists. I'm going to have to add some from your Italy & paranormal lists to mine too :)

    And, yes a very cute boy.

  3. Hi Lisa, nice list. I like your Italy list - "Brunelleschi's Dome" has always been on my TBR list.

    And I recall reading about "The Year of Yes" on the Powell blog. It was funny.

    Have fun!

  4. Oh these are great. I'm increasing my TBR list now!

  5. Your kiddo looks like he's contemplating sending someone an e-mail or something. :)

    Too cute.
