day 22: i <3 books!

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.
