April Recap

I only read 4 books in April.





I participated in the A to Z Challenge again.  Tried to double dip, with mixed results.

Cruised Earth Fair one weekend and Art Walk the following weekend.  Bought Britt a birthday gift at the latter, so I'm prepared for September. :)

The madre visited.

Received a free book from Australian Erin, as well as a bookshelf animal. First, I thought it was a kangaroo. But it's tailless, so then I thought it's a koala. But the face really looks like a kangaroo, so maybe they just left the tail off for kicks and giggles.  The book is the first one above. I liked it, but it's not for everybody. 

Couldn't get the wrapper off a plastic egg full of candy, so I used the cork screw part of a Swiss army knife. It worked, but I kind of sliced my hand open.

Nobody entered Round Four of my contest.  I guess nobody wanted to dye eggs pretty colors. :(

The NFL draft happened. Now I need something else to pointlessly obsess over to fill the void.

Anyway, if you're interested in visiting Australian Erin:


  1. Slicing your hand is no fun. I guess that’s the universe’s way of punishing you for having candy. Nothing could keep me away from candy, though. Happy May!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. you kind of sliced your hand open? kind of? either you did or you didn't. do or do not. there is no try. :] i hope you're okay. you typed this post, so you must be.

    who's britt?

    and how interesting that the first picture you post of the books you read is the one called kill your friends.

    1. Erin's kidney stone was a lot worse.

      Britt is a barista at a cafe I go to on weekends.

    2. well. yes, of course erin's kidney stone was a lot worse.

    3. you sent me a present! that was nice of you. loved all the star wars loot and have put the book on my to be read shelf. thank you.

    4. It's the book from the give-away. Since I have a feeling you won't like it, I added Star Wars stuff I had gotten from cereal boxes.

  3. LOVE Jerzy Kosinski! But... don't know any of the others. John Niven, though, looks like something I might try. "Most exciting British novel since Trainspotting"? Yes, I could do that. Though I confess that I had to read Trainspotting out loud in order to make sense of it :D

    P.S> - Sorry about your hand.

    1. Ha. I cheated and saw the movie for Trainspotting. A lot of sex and drugs and the m.c. is a tool in Kill Your Friends. Quite entertaining though.

      Anyway, good luck with the dog book.
