So, where have I been this week? Check it out:
- The wonderful people over at The Millions have organized a year's worth of New Yorker fiction into a single post with short summaries and links to the full text. I don't even want to think about how long that took!
- Spiderman comes to Obama's rescue in an upcoming comic book release.
- The American Dialect Society voted for bailout as 2008's Word of the Year. Big surprise there.
- If you haven't yet, don't forget to enter my giveaways for The Time Traveler's Wife and Sundays at Tiffany's. Winners will be chosen January 31.
I don't have quite as many books as I would like at my disposal right now because I'm preparing to drive back to school on Sunday and had to return the books I had checked out--but no worries, I already have books (including my textbooks, believe it or not) on reserve and waiting for me at the University Library when I get there tomorrow!
- Gilgamesh by Stephen Mitchell (my own copy, a Christmas present)
- Shadow of the Silk Road by Colin Thubron (I returned the local library's copy, but luckily the university library has a copy waiting for me)
- American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld -- look for a review today or tomorrow!
So where have you been this week? What are your reading? Anyone else on their way back to school or work this weekend?
