Of Weekends, and Book Recommendations, and WWWW's

Boy, I've had a busy, busy week (preceded by a busy, busy weekend.)

Oh, the weekend was NOT busy in the bad way - it was totally the good way: eating out, playing tennis, time at the gulf, going to see a movie, crafting, and lots of time with LOML*. This past weekend totally rocked! (Not to mention, it was a FIVE DAY WEEKEND!!)

It's been so hard coming back to work after that. Usually if I'm away from work for that long, I'm out of town and out of my own bed. This time, I got to sleep late in my own, comfy bed for those days. So, I've had some serious difficulties pulling myself out of the bed these past three days. But, I'm making it happen - kinda.

I've been doing a lot of thinking over the long break (UH OH!) and realized how very much I love a good book. My reading has been slacking lately and I want to get back in the swing of delving into a great story. I'm definitely more of a fiction-reader (unless it's a craft book or comedic.) I haven't touched many classics either lately, since I read so many in high school and college. I've kinda steered clear of the more traditional reads. Now, I'm ready to hop back on the horse and get my read on. What do you recommend? Take into consideration my preference for fiction, my desire to read a few classics, and a slight interest in funny non-fiction (if at all.) So - throw some suggestions at me, I've got a library card and I'm not afraid to use it.

It's "Wild, Wild Web Wednesday" for those of you keeping up:
  • Check out these Creative photos. Some are a little disturbing.
  • How about some surfing mice. This brings a whole new definition to 'drowned rat'.
  • I am SO beyond glad I don't live in a place where it snows and I have to deal with this.
  • I would, however, like to live here: Someone is finally building a neighborhood for us Lord of the Rings geeks. It's called Bendshire. How cool would it be to live there. I wonder if you'd have to pass a geek test of some sort.
That's all for now - Crafty Hope OUT!!
