All over the place

I'm having a major case of literary ADD lately. I've abandoned three books in the past week. That is unheard of for me. I need a book to strike my fancy pronto! I just started listening to Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson and it seems to be doing the trick. The writing is wonderful and the narrator has a very pleasant, calming voice. Let's hope I have the motivation to see this one through.

Since I seem to be meandering in my reading, I figured I'd let this post meander. On something totally unrelated, I was introduced to this adorable video on Maw Books Blog. It's a spoof of the Old Spice Guy. I dare you to try only watching it once. I thought for sure I'd be able to do it, but sadly, I've already watched it like four times.

So be honest, how many times did you watch it?

Meandering again, lots of people have recently been reviewing The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride. I wasn't sold on weather I wanted to read it until I watched this book trailer

Putting this book on my "to-read" list as we speak...

OK, I'm back.

And finally, to end this catch-all post, here's a fabulous NPR article about why libraries might be the next pop culture trend. So that headmaster of that school in Massachussetts who got rid of all the books in his school's library in favor of a cappuccino bar? Yeah, I hope he's feeling pretty stupid right about now.
