I am not dead, truly

It's extremely rare that I don't post in two weeks, and I must say that not only have I not posted in this amount of time... but I have not read anything either.  Not a book, not a magazine, not a short story, not an article.  Yes, I am behind.

I recently got a new job and I have been experiencing two weeks of 12 hour days... which only really leaves time for eating and sleeping, and even then, the timing of both has dwindled.  I saw my girlfriend for only a few minutes at a time during this period... but I'm hoping that soon the ship will right itself soon (in another week) and I can get back to a more 'normal' pace.

Hopefully I will remember what is happening in "The Way of All Flesh", but considering I just had to look up the title... I may be a little lost to begin with.  Anyways, just letting you all know I am alive and I'll resume a healthier pace on the blog shortly.  Keep checking in... and comment on this post and tell me what you're reading... so at least I can live vicariously through you.

Hang in there. Your loyal followers will be waiting :o) It's a tough racket to keep up with, isn't it?

Here's my Monday post. Cheers!

Good to hear from you! I was wondering where you went. :-)

I'm reading the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder right now. I extended my read list to 250 - including some Shakespeare!

Talk to you soon...

I'm reading The Way of All Flesh and I'm LOVING it!! Hopefully will get it finished in time for the book club meeting next week.

Um, am also reading some other books ... a few too many to list actually! As per usual ;)

Good to know you're still alive and kicking though!

Hope you're doing well with all the responsibilities! I'm reading a Morganville Vampires YA book and Homer's Odyssey. :-)

Why must we spend so many hours on work when we really want to be reading?!

Stopping by via the Hop!

You are cordially invited to add a link to your book reviews for the week at my Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon. It's a sort of round-up of bloggers' book reviews each week on Saturday:

I am wading through my list of classic literature books and preparing to read Lady Anna by Anthony Trollope..:)

I know how much work cuts into everything; the only saving grace for me when I recently lost my job is that I would FINALLY be able to keep up with my blog and reviews and review requests! LOL! (Although having a paycheck is a really good thing!)

Right now, I'm reading The Last Operative by Jerry B. Jenkins and Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane .. just coming off "The Passage" by Justin Cronin

Work can be a grind! And then we have to be grateful for our jobs in this economy! I am just finishing up Anthony Trollope's The Prime Minister, which I cannot put down. I mean that literally, as in my husband asked me yesterday: Are you going to carry that book everywhere? Yes, I answered.

I have yet to delve into Trollope... what is the style like and what books do you reccommend?
