I wasn’t going to sign up for Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW), but it’s hard not to. I didn’t last year and kinda missed it, even though I really don’t think of myself as a book blogger anymore. Just a book reader, and blogger of things that usually relate to books, but not always. I like the freedom from the label, you know?
Anyhoosie. I signed up. But who knows what all I’ll manage to post about. I have to drive to Fresno for work on Tuesday, so that day is shot. And Hamburger returns from Costa Rica on either Tuesday night or Wednesday. Probably Wednesday. He’s done this trip many times, and has yet to make the connecting flight in Houston that gets him home on Tuesday, and honestly, I’m always relieved, because then I don’t have to pick him up from the airport at midnight. This year I’m just leaving the surf van at the airport on Tuesday night (after that whole Fresno thing) and I’ll see him when I see him. Plus, I’m still doing the regular 10 hour day work schedule, which makes doing anything other than work, eat, catch up with HB, read a little bit, sleep, repeat difficult during the week.
Excuses, excuses. I could totally bang out some posts tonight and tomorrow for the week, but I still have minimal time to blog hop and comment, which, to me, is a big part of BBAW.
So we’ll see how this goes. In a world where I a) was independently wealthy b) needed no sleep c) was more organized and/or d) had a clone well then, I’d be lovin’ on all of y’all all week long.
I figure if I’m signing up for things, I might as well just put it all into one giant post. Didn’t I just stress the importance of multi-tasking?
Yep, that’s right. I’m officially joining Carl’s R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge. This is the 7th year of the challenge, and I think the second time I’ve done it.
During the months of September and October, I will be reading:
- IT (’cause of, you know, the IT-along)
- American Psycho (hello, Dueling Monsters)
- Red Dragon (hello again, Dueling Monsters)
- one other book, so that this isn’t entirely all about my own readalongs and challenges…I am willing to listen to convincing arguments as to what this book should be
That’s right, people. I’m committing to Peril the First, the four book option.
I probably should say I’m doing Peril the Third (the one book option), since I had plans to read three of those books already, but if I’m reading horror, dammit, I’m damn well going to milk it for all it’s worth.
Will you be R.I.P.-ing? If not, why not? It’s pretty much the event of the season (Carl is da man when it comes to hosting challenges)…join the fun!
