News in Bookland

Let's do this in list form!

1. I will have more book related news, considering it is Christmas and over half of the items on my wish list were books...I expect my collection to grow some within the next few days.

2. It's not even Christmas yet and I have gotten four books in the past few weeks. (this is pretty significant) I won my first giveaway. I won Atonement and Love in the Time of Cholera. I got As I Have Loved You as a gift from a friend, and my mom bought me Twilight!

3. I am in the middle of three books now. I am scared to go past the first chapter of Twilight. I'm scared that after all the great things I have heard about the series that I will be disappointed. I'm scared that I won't be able to fit it into my senior project (seriously, who came up with the concept of senior projects any way? Let's give all these kids who really want to get out of school and don't want any more schoolwork for the rest of their lives the biggest project they've ever had!)

4. I posted a review of a book I really enjoyed and I was surprised to get a comment from the author! This is the first time something like that has happened. I also learned that the book was based on a true story, which makes the story even more incredible!

5. I've been reading Bridget Jones's Diary for a long time now and am only half way through! I want to be done with it!

Senior projects...blech! I wrote mine on how the Russian Revolution impacted the lives of women. Unfortunately, Russia had another revolution while I was writing it, and I had to go back through the whole paper and add "of 1917" to all the references to Russian Revolution.
