storyteller and all-around creative distraction

day 22: i

Amazon gift certificate time! I love debit card points 🙂

Hubby and I got about 20 books, and it only cost us about $40. There are too many to list, but I’m most looking forward to:

Self-Help, by Lorrie Moore
Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer (just have to see what all the hype is about!)
Men in Love, by Nancy Friday (part novel research, part horny curiosity 😉
Veronica, and Bad Behavior, by Mary Gaitskill
and I also bought copies of already-read books I borrowed from the library:
The Virgin Suicides, by Jeffrey Eugenides
Then We Came to the End, by Joshua Ferris
and Billions & Billions, by Carl Sagan

NaNoWriMo Stats: end of day 21
30079 words (on track = 35000)

I haven’t exactly given up on NaNoWriMo, but am taking a slower pace. I took an entire day off yesterday, and spent it watching the entire second season of Weeds 🙂

Now I’m going to see what all this Twilight hype is about. I’m skeptical, and wasn’t too impressed with either the reviews, or the Amazon sneak-peak. But you know, there must be something I can learn from it, since everybody alive has read it but me! It’s all anybody talks about anymore. Teenage vampire romance, lol.

  • Just a friendly note that we want our books back. We don’t take kindly to library thief’s. Don’t make us send the corduroy suit guy to collect on you, his leather elbow patches will leave you with nightmares!
