Bookish & Not So Bookish Thoughts

is a weekly meme hosted by Christine over at Bookishly Boisterous, where we post things that are on our minds.  Head over there and check it out!

1.  I went to a new book club this week (more about it tomorrow).  A teacher at the kids’ school was the guest speaker.  I want her to choose ALL the books I read.

2.  I drove my kids (16 and 14) to school-20 miles away.  It wasn’t until about 10 minutes into the ride, me chatting away, that I realized they both had their headphones one.  Teenagers suck.

3.  After the headphone incident, I decide to try my very first audio book on these car rides.  I went to the library and took out Burial Rites, which sounded like a good book, that I just haven’t been able to push myself to read.

I LOVE IT!  It is so well read.

Can anyone recommend another audio book?

4.  I am landing a baby shower for my husband’s sister.  Do not ask why.  One thought- baby shower games can border on moronic.  Plus we are having a co-ed shower.  These men are going to run for the hills if I don’t reign this in.  We will have a baby pool- that’s it.

5.  Not book related- but I think I am becoming Gluten intolerant.  One cracker and I am in agony.  Or someone is slowly poisoning me.

6.  Halloween is not fun without little kids.  And I can’t seem to find a good costume for 80 lbs chocolate Lab that he will keep on.

I wish I could do this-

7.  I read the sequel to The Bone Season called The Mime Order last week.  I don’t know why, but I love both of these books.  They are confusing, strange, and I am not sure I am understanding everything.  I still love it.

Well, I need to walk above mentioned Lab, and mail invites for above mentioned shower, and figure out dinner for above mentioned sucky teenagers.
