Me and Books

I have been sick. (So sick that...)
I have NOT been calling my friends for their birthdays. (The Aquarian ones) I feel terrible.
I have been reading.
I have been reading a lot.

I was thinking of making one of those "Books I am Currently Reading" things, but then I realized that every blog has one of those. And who cares about what I'm reading anyway? Am I so cool that people will go out and read any book I've read? I'm no connoisseur of literature, I promise you. And I have no foreknowledge of what I'm reading, mostly. I just read whatever's on hand. (if the blurb looks like it's compensating for what's INSIDE the book, or if it has a title like "Darkest Africa", then I usually don't read it.) (Ironically, I have a book about darkest Africa next to my bed right now. We'll just see how bored I get.)
Well I conjured one up anyway, and I was so ashamed of my taste that I decided to post it here for all to see.







The only of the above that I am actually glad that I happened upon are Return From Tomorrow by George G. Ritchie, which is a splendidly written book about stuff that is usually pretty boring to read; Rilla of Ingleside which is a classic, regardless of the rest of the Green Gables stories; and the Japanese Bible (which, yes, is that book with the rainbow stripes on it.) Ironically it's the exact copy that I possess, and am now struggling through. I'm learning a lot of new kanjis. Hurray!
Anyway. This concludes the most self-centered post ever.
