Checking In and DNF

It seems like it has been so long since I blogged but it really hasn't. I was on a good pace with my reading and really enjoy my books, and then I came up with two, count 'em 2, DNFers. One book I think I just wasn't in the mood for and then I really tried to read but couldn't finish. The one I couldn't finish was called One More Sunday and was an older book. The premise sounded great, about one of those big super churches and the tactics used to get people to donate, etc. and almost seemed cult like. With all of the polygmy Texas cases going on I thought that it would fit right in. However, a big part of it was this new computer they had and there was a ton of technical stuff. I understand the need of it for the past when computers were new and foriegn to most people but it really just bored me. I gave it more time than usual, reading over 150 pages but finally gave up.

I was going to start a Gregg Olsen book that the Shelfari group is reading for June, but I don't own it! I must have looked at it 100 times at the bookstore and just never bought it assuming I already have it, but I don't. So while I will try and make it to the bookstore this weekend to get it but I don't want to wait. I want to get a good hour of reading in before bed so I am starting The Dead Room by Robert Ellis. It sounds good and hopefully will grab my attention.

Tomorrow is a HUGE sports day in this town. The Pistons (basketball) are playing in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, the Tigers are playing (and will hopefully keep their winning streak alive) and of course, my RED WINGS are playing the Penguins. Here's our local papers sign that readers contributed to counter one Pittsburgh came up with.

Our team is known for throwing octupi on the ice which I think is wonderful because octupus love to eat penguins, so we will crush the Penguins as well. GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's it from me. Have a safe and great weekend! Happy Reading!
