Busy Weekend!

Whew! I have been a reading machine this weekend! I finished Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross and am 3/4 of the way through The Fool's Tale by Nicole Galland.

I always like to plan well in advance. I have my reading list planned out through next year and I spent this evening re-arranging my bookshelves by order I'm going to read them in so it will be easier for me to find my next book. Since I have 600+ books in my personal library, it took about two hours to get everything where I wanted it. I have requested my hubby build me another
8'x 4' bookshelf for my birthday because the one I have is completely filled and the cheap Walmart bookshelf I have is bowing under the weight of the books on it and looks like its collapse is imminent.

I also spent a very relaxing two hours roaming the local Barnes and Noble while drinking a Venti Cinnamon Dolce Latte. I do this about once a week even if I really don't have the money to buy anything because it is a great de-stresser for me.

Coming this week:

Review on The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
Review of Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross
Review of The Fool's Tale by Nicole Galland
A huge weekly acquisitions post (also another reason I need a nice new big shelf. I went a little nuts with the book acquiring this week).

And now off to bed. I am completely pooped out and my back is killing me from repeatedly lifting all those books :)


  1. Wow 600+ books! That is so awesome :) I have three full bookcases with about 300 in mine. Glad to know I'm not the only one who plans their book reading list in advance :) Have a great week!

  2. Totally random question I've never been able to get a good answer for: Would you recommend Pope Joan for guys? I've heard it may border on the "historical chick lit" but I've also heard so many good things about it that I'm intrigued. Your thoughts?

  3. I can see where some would say that because it does have a bit of a romance going on in it but I found the story of how she rose from the brotherhood to eventually be chosen as Pope far more interesting. I think it would be good for guys too :)
