Well, we’ve reached the end of another week at Booking in Heels and it’s been a fairly productive one, as far as I’m concerned.
It’s unlikely you’ve actually noticed a difference, but I’m starting to be much more organised in the management of my blog. Hell, I’ve even done the unthinkable and actually scheduled a post! Round of applause, anyone? I’ve been much more focused on my reviews and I’m starting to think about the future of Booking in Heels a little more.
Despite my super-productive week though, I’ve still managed to get my hands on a fair few books.
Sam from Falling Books was nice enough to send me Stray as a RAK last week. I raved about it in my review, so imagine my happy dance when it turned up on my doorstep. Finally I own my very own copy! Thanks Sam 🙂
So I’ve managed to once again go vaguely psycho in the library again. Haha, ‘psycho,’ cause I borrowed The Psychopath Test… get it? 🙂 Sorry.
Anyway, all five of these were actually requests, although the library did manage to temporarily lose Shockoholic. I found a stray librarian to ask if she knew where it was, and she managed to help me immensely by looking confused and asking if the book I was already holding was it. Err… no. Regardless, she eventually located it and I toddled off home to roll about in my requested books.
I’ve read The Psychopath Test and Shockaholic already. Ideally the review of the former will be going up this afternoon but I can smell an almost completed Sunday lunch, and that pretty much means nap-time will follow…. Yeah, we’ll see.
I’m oddly excited about Jurassic Park. The Boy brought home all three films last week and I fell in love with the first one all over again, so I’m suddenly desperate to see how the book compares.
For the first time in a very long while, I’ve actually had a tiny bit of spare money. It’s been ages since I treated myself to some books, so I had a quick traipse round the charity shops the other day.
I had absolutely no idea that Minority Report was by Philip K. Dick. I knew it was a book, but if I’d known who’d wrote it, I’d probably have read it before now.
We watched The King’s Speech not so long back and surprisingly really enjoyed it. Both my Dad and I stammer (although his is a lot worse than mine) so it made a nice change to see a strong film character who does so too. I was curious about how accurate the film actually was and added the book to my wishlist – but then it turned up in Help the Aged! Yeeeaaaah!
Finally, The Children’s Book was a swap on ReaditSwapit. I’ve had a quick flick through and it has tiny text and not a lot of paragraphs, so I might hold back until I’m in a slightly more patient mood.
