I'm Not Really All That Bloggable

I did not make up a recipe today. I didn't even buy organic vegetables at a hip outdoor market. I didn't re-purpose a thrift store find into something to pin. My mothering skills are less than terrific, so I don't have a parenting tip that will save your children or your sanity. You might want to refrain from looking for a theme or color scheme in the decor of my house. You know that phrase "exercise in futility?" It would come to mind. Yes, I do guarantee that.

Well, actually, I like to bake. I appreciate it when friends and family (and mere aquaintances) like it back. So, I do have two things I can do.

I can bake.....and I can read.

I mean, like, really read.

After years of thinking that maybe I should blog about books, I am finally sitting down with a beer and chips and salsa to do it. This is the first entry in my blog about what I am reading, what I am planning to read, and why....

Chris and I had been trying to decide, with no success, what to read aloud together next. Then, while we were out walking the dog, Chris said, "Let's just re-read The Hobbit." For a fall back position, that's not so bad.

So, at the top of the list and for the read aloud-

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

In the stack by the desk, waiting to float to the top:
My favorite verse in the bible is in Genesis. "A thick and dreadful darkness fell on Abram" Gives me the shivers every time.

It's been four or five years since I last re-read Bram Stoker's Dracula. I've read it 6 or so times since my first reading of it in high school. I can feel it pushing in on my consciousness to be read again. Really, I can. And, no. I didn't read the Twilight books.
