 Oh my god.   

I want this so bad I can -taste- it.  It tastes a little like panic but man-oh-man, please please keep your fingers crossed for me.

So for two weeks I'm getting paid well over minimum wage to sit in a cubicle, answer 5-10 calls a day, let people into the secure office, and receive and sort mail.

All of which takes about an hour or two out of my 8 hour workday.

So.  At the suggestion of the women who I'm covering for at the VP of Sales, I have brought a book with me every day (yesterday two) so that I have something with which to occupy my time.


Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

They're taking them away, Henry thought. They're taking all of them away. There must be five thousand Japanese. How can they take them all? Where will they go?  )

My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares


You have been with me from the very first life. You are my first memory every time, the single thread in all of my lives. It`s you who makes me a person.  )



Tapestry of Spells: a novel of the Nine Kingdoms by Lynn Kurland


"We may have already had this conversation but I did not like the way it ended last time." )

Magic to the Bone


"Using magic meant it used you back. Forget the fairy tale hocus-pocus, wave a wand and bling-o sparkles and pixie dust crap.  )

This is the summery for a book that was just offered to me:

Traveling west on the Oregon Trail, slave Lucy Bowman dreams of a life of freedom in California, but when her owner dies an untimely death, she is left at the mercy of the wagon master. As fate would have it, an outlaw known as Dangerous Dan comes to her rescue, but his idea of freedom and hers idea clash mightily.

Lucy doesn’t want an owner, she doesn’t want a husband, and she most certainly doesn’t want to be a poor cowboy’s bed-warmer. Parting ways with Dan, she is determined to write her own destiny. With scheming, wiles, and a little unlawful behavior, she manages to buy a brothel and attract the attention of the recently appointed sheriff, Raging Thunder.

Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder collide as both men compete to save the woman they both see as more ingénue than prostitute. The lawless mining camp of Jimtown might not be big enough for the two men bidding for the attention of the painted lady known as Madam Lucille.


SERIOUSLY?  Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder?  I mean... COME ON.  This gives me hope that I can one day get published.  Even if people make fun of my synopsis.

I was going to post an entry but I typed it up and realized it was the most boring entry ever.

So instead, I'll leave you with the bad haiku I wrote while having a haiku battle with The Bonster Monster during our Hanami (Cherry Blossom Viewing) walk down the Philosopher's Path.

Perhaps it would have been less time consuming to go after the books I -haven't- read.


Rules:
Bold the books you've read completely; watching the movies or cartoon doesn't count.
Italicize the ones you've read parts of.
