A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters
Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich
Dragongirl by Todd McCaffrey
The Search by Nora Roberts
The Waters Rising by Sherri Tepper
Black Out and All Clear by Connie Willis
Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb
Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark
Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts
The X Factor by Andre Norton
Something from the Nightside by Simon Green
Blood Rites by Barry Nazarian

Today I picked up my copy of Jim Butcher’s Side Jobs. If I get to it, great, but I’m not adding it to this challenge list. I’m not surprised the two first books were Nora Roberts’ novels. They are both parts of a series that I read immediately. Hopefully, the first Connie Willis novel, Black Out will be next.

What a List!

While reaBlack Out by Connie Willisding some of the Twitter I follow today, I ran across the RT (Romantic Times) Award Nominees for 2010. Goodness they have a lot of categories! They look at romance novels across genres. I’ve read a small number of them, and am reading one right now on their science fiction list – Black Out by Connie Willis.

You can find the whole list here.

The common factor here? All of these were published this year. All of them now sit on Mt. Bookpile. I really should read them before the end of the year. (I still have 2 or 3 from 2009 to read, too, but hey…)

Plus I want to pick up the final Bride Quartet book by Nora Roberts, Happy Ever After and read it. Then there are the three older books I bought specifically on recommendation (rather than browsing used book stores and picking up what looked good). I’d like to read those, too. Thirteen books – all in paper, not audio or e-book. I probably should quit borrowing library books for a month or so.

Big Cats and Pumpkins

No, this has nothing to do with reading. But I liked this video. I didn’t realize cats liked pumpkins so much.
