Imagine, if you will, a bookworm’s hell: stuck in bed for five days without a book. Too sick to hit up the bookstore, library, and corner book pimp. No new books to read at home.
I’ve resorted to downloading the audiobook of The Witch of Blackbird Pond because after reading it twelve times, I thought it would be a change to listen to someone else read it. I’ve been productive, though. I wiled away the hours writing and catching up on Austen remakes: Sense & Sensibility (excellent) and Persuasion (crap. See my Twits for scene by scene commentary).
I leave you with a collage. I read These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer during Christmas. Why no book talk? Answer is simple. I suck. Here is a collage. Look at it. Love it. Love me because I can slap together pretty pictures despite being a lazy bum in the book review department.
These Old Shades – by LitCon on Polyvore.com
In keeping with the Regency theme, I give you Pride and Prejudice.
Jumping off on a huge tangent, I give you Dracula—read during Halloween 2008, but regretfully left unfinished. I got fed up with the never-ending blood transfusion part. How many times do they have to give Lucy blood before they put two and two together and realize that her anemia is vampire related?! Somewhere in the distant future, I may feel inclined to pick Dracula up again…in audiobook form because I vant a reader who speaks in my ear with sexy Transylvanian accent.
Here I realize I’ve made too many Polyvore collages. I foresee a book-to-collage part II in the future.
