Do you ever wonder...

what people are doing when they don't blog for a while? Sometimes I think they are off doing wonderful, exciting things. Like hiking Mt Everest. Or kayaking the Colorado. Or baking cookies.

Not me. I've not done anything except try not to melt.

Scratch that. I've been reading. A lot. See that coolio link I added over to the side? It's a site that keeps track of books you're reading, you want to read, you've read, and you can rate and review the books. And you can also add people as friends (yeah, I know, you can't go anywhere without this function nowadays!) but it's totally cool because the people I've added as friends have led me to some awesome books!

So I paid up on my library card. And checked out books and cds.

I used to be quite the bookworm and if I really get into a book, I have a hard time putting it down and even going to sleep! And then I will read it for hours on end and give myself what I call a 'reading headache'. Sucks! But oh well! lol I'm glad I'm reading again. A couple years ago I read about 50 books in one year. I kept track just to see. And then it didn't seem to be about the books anymore, it became about the numbers. Plus, I didn't know where to go to get good book recommendations.

I'm a book nerd. I'm ok with it!

Here's a picture for you to look at. I know how posts without photos just bite! lol Click to view whole photo. This is from our Sunday daytrip to the Uinta Mountains. That whole place is just so gorgeous that the beauty almost overwhelms me. Almost. And it was the perfect temperature, especially for escaping the valley heat. There was blue sky, snow and a whole lot of clean, fresh air. Ahhh! Very invigorating!

I almost forgot! Check THIS out! I made a video about the robins!

That's all for now! Peace!

Awesome- a fellow crazybooklady! My husband is always after me to stop getting library fines, but I check out so many books at once (who knows which ones will be good, right?) and I don't want to go back until I'm done with them all! Ok, it's ridiculous.

What kind of books are you in to? I could possibly give some recommendations...

i am a super book nerd. i have always read books. when i was young i would go to the library and check out like 15 books and read them all. that's what i would do all summer. one year in college, i didn't read any books for fun and i realized how much i missed it. i love goodreads too and have read better books since becoming a member. i watched your video on youtube. it's so beautiful. SO beautiful. the photos are gorgeous and it's so nice to see them in succession like that. you rule! (and when i am away from the internet for a long time, it doesn't necessarily mean cool things are happening, sometimes it's sucky things! haha)

love, amber s.
