Crazy Reading

So, yesterday I got THIS BOOK in the mail. I was so excited! I can't wait to read it. I've actually wanted to read it for a while now, but for some reason kept from buying or borrowing it from the library. Don't know why. But now, with this new Author's Preferred Text version available, I'm really glad that I waited.

There's an extra 12,000 words of story, and it's Neil Gaiman's favourite version. Can't wait to get lost in the story. Actually, I started it this morning and read the first chapter. Though, I really wanted to read more, but I had the usual morning stuff to do first.

Now, however, the book's on the desk in front of me. Taunting me, urging me to read it, claiming that I need the rest. Why not sit on the couch for the rest of the afternoon and just read Shadow's story? Sounds good to me...

So, what's new? Nothing new on my front, except that I'm still reading like crazy and yesterday, I didn't really do much else. I got too caught up in THE DECLARATION. Glad I did, loved it! Now I've got four YA futuristic/dystopian/post-apocalypse library books left to read.

The weather's been really nice this week. Not quite as summery as it was a few times the week before, but still nice and sunny. I feel spring in the air. You know when it's right there, and you can smell it? I love this season, and summer. I could totally live in a place where winter didn't exist. Can't stand winter. I'm glad it doesn't snow here in Sydney, because I don't think I could survive it. *shiver*

Well, I guess it's time to sign out and decide what I'm going to do for the next few hours before my daughter gets home -- read or take notes that I should've done yesterday? :)
