The Book of Dahlia

March 27th, 2009

Another chore of a book. Not really because it wasn’t a good book. It was a fine book. Although writing about it is seemingly as unpleasant as reading it. At times. Like now.

It’s one of those books that made me think, hurry up and be over already! Kind of like this blog post.

No idea what to pick for book #12, but I’m a couple weeks behind so I’d better get started.

Book of Dahlia Dust Jacket Discovery

A note about The Book of Dahlia. The dust jacket covers the more beautiful part of the physical book. (For a change)

And Next Up…Book #10 For Week #11

March 11th, 2009

I finished the Stephen King memoir tonight and gave it the highest rating yet. King mentions the book The Elements of Style frequently and it got me thinking about my own writing. So I bought the book and it arrived today. I also purchased Click by Bill Tancer, and The Book of Dahlia by Elisa Albert. You can see a complete list of books that I’ve read and will be reading by checking out my Goodreads account.

I have all sorts of things that I would like to write about, but I’m just waiting for that spark to come. Once I have my office up and organized maybe it will come more freely. All I really need is a desk. I haven’t had one since 2003. Not since the day before the bombs dropped on Baghdad. Don’t read too much into that, merely a coincidence.

I think I’m a week behind but I’m not at all worried about the resolution. Considering how this year has gone so far, I’m optimistic about what I’ve accomplished so far. Plus, little nuggets like The Elements of Style will help my progress.
