Fall is here! Finally summer is over. If only all the bugs died on the first day of fall, I could be truly happy. Unfortunately, Tasha was telling horrifying tales of centipedes at supper today, so I know it can't be true. *sighs*

Okay, those are my history books. You could say I've gotten behind.... Yeah, you could say that. They aren't quite all up there yet. Because I'm upstairs and too lazy to go down to find out the rest of them. Most of them also don't have authors. I'll fix that. Swear. But I'm too tired tonight. You're lucky you're getting this. Anywho, continuing on...

[Edit 9-25-08] Done! I'n' it pretty. It's also long. *nods solemnly* Yep. Oh! And did ya see I read Calico Canyon? Such a good book!

And those are just for fun. You gotta have some of those, yeah? ;)

So much is happening this fall. I've got to figure out college stuff. I've got a job (!) and school. October 1st is the grand opening (does that term still apply if nothing technically opens?) of the Marcher Lord Press And NaNoWriMo! Yes, I'm already planning. I'm fairly sure what story I'm doing, and there's a good reason there's not many "fun" books on my list. (As if I needed any more books on that list anyway. *rolls eyes*) In November I am not reading any fiction 'cepting FIRST and history. A wise decision I think. It should free up some of my time for writing and get me caught up with history some. Wish me lots of luck.

Well, I'm gone. I've got today's history book to read and... I don't know, I have a list downstairs. Promise I'll neaten (is that a word?) this list up later this week, but for now.... *shrugs* it's here!

Happy Fall, all!

I know how busy work can make you. Your list looks impressive. I don't think I'm making one this time sadly. I haven't read a book in 5 and a half weeks. I might pick one up this weekend though as I don't think I have any plans yet. Besides weed eating your yard Saturday. Good luck!

Hmmm. Is it possible you are into history? Maybe the Revolutionary era in particular? I don't suppose that has anything to do with your NaNo topic? I have a big interest in all things historical myself. Lots of fascinating stuff, although they did their best in school to make it dull and boring. Historical fiction is probably tied with fantasy for my favorite genre in literature. I've read a couple of those books myself, and have the FIRST books lined up as well. Reading Single Sashimi right now. Camy is such a good writer. Gillian Chang could easily have interacted with Camy's characters.

A job, school and zillions of books to read. I hope you read fast and have a photographic memory!

I am into history, but ironically enough, NOT American history. Just not my era. I prefer anything pre-Renaissance European, but Ancient Greece was my favorite book. The books just happen to be the last TruthQuest books that I'm doing this year. *sighs* I'll suffer. I still enjoy, just not as much. *smiles*

Fantasy! That, paranormal, horror, sci-fi... anything speculative is like favorite genre of all time. (I make it into a very broad genre, don't I?...)

Are either of you doing FIR? (ooh, cool abreviation! Sorry, I'm a little wound tonight. :P)
