It’s late afternoon and the smell of coffee is in the air. I’m waiting for my first pot of the day so I can start reading. There’s nothing better than a cup of coffee to go with a good book. I’m reading The Warmth of Other Suns with Heather from Between the Covers. Heather is one of the most hilarious bloggers I know. She keeps me laughing plus she writes great reviews.
Last week was so hectic! School started Monday and I’ve had homework from day one. I don’t mind so much even though one of my psych professors told my class to start working on a major research project now. I’m so excited about my project that I know I made the right choice in changing my major to psychology and anthropology. In my archaeology class, my professor had us discuss the effects of media on society as we recalled all the famous archaeologists from movies. Talking about Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones, and other movies made me want to spend an afternoon watching them all over again.
So as exciting as school has been, it’s left me with little time to read. I’ve been reading Muriel Spark’s Memento Mori between classes. It’s a hilarious (yes, I’m using that word for the second time), story about old age. I need to thank Claire (Paperback Reader) for talking about it last year. I can’t believe it took me so long to read it. I also continued The Street Sweeper but since it’s so big, it’s my nightstand read.
I suddenly became sick yesterday so now I’m off to bed to regain my strength. What are you reading this week?
