Currently on a Reading Jag......

Isn't this card just gorgeous!!!!! My friend Trish made it and sent it to me!! I love the use of piecework pieces of paper!!! Love the sentiment, the colors, the image of the girl!! The ribbon, the button!!! Love it!
As the title of this entry indicates I have been madly reading books over the last four days. When I have not been at work, I have been reading!!! I am addicted. I am reading about 3 books at one time! Above is a new artsy book I ran across at Barnes and Noble when Mike and I were there tooting. It is totally worth getting. I love it! I put it in the same league as Alphabetica and True Colors for those of you who are familiar with those books.
Mike and I took two huge boxes of books to Half-Price books. We got $55 for them. I, of course, turned around and bought some more books. I took a chance on the above novel as I read Anna Maxted's first novel some years ago and loved it. She is in the "chick lit" genre, but probably shouldn't be cause her books are a step above that tired stuff. So far, this book is a really good read. Funny too.

I am still reading The Diana Chronicles. It is probably the best book on Princess Diana I have ever read. It really puts her life into perspective. I highly recommend it.

I have stacks and stacks of books to read. I am so lucky!!!!!!! It is always fun to plan what is next. What are you guys reading right now?

I nipped over to see your blog as you have very kindly visited mine. It is really lovely and it always fascinates me to see what interests fellow bloggers have. And as you love Wagner and opera I have to drop by as we are kindred spirits. Elaine

I am currently reading my art mags and little bit of trash in between. The book I am reading is Kaleidoscope by suzanne simanaitis....a great friend gave it to me..YOU! I also have in my stack Altered Books Workshop, Altered Board Book (basics & beyond), and Let's Play Cards (how to turn playing cards into art). I have enough drama in my life currently that I need not read about anyone elses...but you can pass on the Diana book when you are done! I can't believe I made the blog two entrys in a row! I feel like a rock star!

I just finished Durable Goods (loved it) and of course now I need to buy Joy School...I LOVE E. Berg !!!!!!!

So right now I'm reading POEMCRAZY and really enjoying it. Everybody was raving about FOOLSGOLD, which I did buy, but I decided I wanted to read her first book, first!!

So much reading....not enough summer !!!!

Just droping in to catch up on your blog and to say Hi and to also wish you a great Sunday. For a long time I'd drop by and it was the same post about you being gone on vacation. Then I wasn't able to be on the puter for some time. Glad to see you are creating madly. LOL

I love that you're reading three books at one time,Laura...never been able to do that, wish I could though, because there are times when I get bored with the same book, especially when it's a tome!

You will have to tell me what you think of Tina Brown's biography on Diana.

Your card from Trish is just gorgeous! I just received Angela's new house book and am really enjoying it. It's quite lovely and lots of great ideas!
