37 is for Trente-Sept!

Welcome to Reading on Thursday's,

I know, I know. The name really sucks. I'm not very good at making up creative names for my posts.  Did you know that I almost thought I had missed a day for my blog? I was like "Oh, No. I didn't miss a day. Did I?" By the way "?" is a question mark if some of you can't tell. I don't know if you can see the weird font I am typing this in but if it just so happens that you can, then I wanted you to know.

Anyway, as I was saying. Today is Reading on Thursday's.  I hope you all enjoy.

I rode the bus up to the Library. I was supposed to be there around noon but I knew the lady I was supposed to be meeting with was supposed to be in a meeting until then and I was like "Well, I want to make sure she is out of the meeting before I go in".  I arrived at around 12:44 pm. When I went in and asked Doug, the guy at the desk to see Julie, he told me she was on her break. So I walked over to this one section and a book caught my eye. English Christian Names. I was like "Hmm, I wonder if they have the name I would name my child." I looked in the C section of the book and scrolled through the list.  Guess what, the name was in there. "Caleb". I love that name and if I ever have kids and I have a boy, I would name him Caleb Mathew. If I had a girl, I would name her Elisabeth Esther, I've had my heart set on those names. I hope the man I marry is okay with that. Finally, I got introduced to all the regular Library Staff. I'm the new volunteer. So she was showing me around and asking me questions. She asked me if I liked reading or if I did it a lot. Of course, I do. I may not read as fast as others but I love reading and do it a lot. Anyway, we talked and I'm going to start volunteering next Tuesday. It's the busiest time of day, right when the Library opens and I think I'm going to have a lot of fun. I'm so excited.

So what's up with my Must Read List of 2011. I've been silently reading, trying to complete my list. I'm failing but I'm trying my best. I'm still reading Rocky Road Trip By Catherine Clark. I'm just having a hard time getting through this book. It's written as Journal Entries and it just kind of bores me to tears if you know what I mean. Angela's Ashes By Frank McCourt was more interesting than this. I never finished his book but I might try to finish it as soon as I can.  If your looking for a good book to read though then don't pass over Catherine Clark's other stand - alone books. She's a very good author.

What's on the Reading List This Week:

  1. Rocky Road Trip
  2. Book 1: Warriors: Into the Wild
  3. Ever
  4. Dreamhouse Kings Book 1: House of Dark Shadows
  5. Ranma 1/2 Volume 8
  6. Fruits Basket Volume 12
  7. Fruits Basket Volume 13
  8. Fruits Basket Volume 14
So that's what I'm going to start to read this week. I'm currently finishing up Rocky Road Trip so as soon as I am finished with that I will move on to Into the Wild . I've only heard about this series but I'm so excited to finally get a chance to read it.

Love Britt
