It's been a trying week for me, so TGIF! How has it been for you?
Check out my Friday memes after the jump!
Check out this week's Book Blogger Hop question:
“Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!”
Easy, peasy: Check out some Weird How-T Book titles in an old post. Note that these are REAL books you can buy. Yes, I've always wanted to know "how to start my own country!" Intrigued? Check 'em out :)

I recently finished That Day in September which is Artie Van Why's memoir of his devastating 9/11 experience. Because page 56 is blank, I hopped to page 57:
I looked at the faces, the expressions, the forced animation. No one wanted to talk about what we had experienced just a week ago. We feigned interest in other topics of conversation. Only our eyes held the thoughts that were too difficult to put into words.
Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?
My readings habit have changed tremendously! I used to read what was "in:" anything from the Sweet Dreams craze, to all the sci-fi books I could get my hands on.
I've since dipped into so may other genres, challenging myself to read out of my comfort zone. I've been reading Nobel Prize winners, some Man Bookers, some historical fiction, quite a bit of non-fiction, a whole bunch of children's books and young-adult books (gotta prepare myself for the little one's questions when she starts reading them). To sum it up, my reading is as diverse as it can possibly get.
Check out my reviews page and see just what a hodegpodge my reading list has become! And here's to more great books to discover :) Hoping you have a wonderful weekend!
