Surfing Saturdays 1.10.09

Welcome to Surfing Saturdays! Each Saturday morning, I'll list any links of interest I came across during the past week of surfing and give an update on my reading progress. Play along with me! You can add your own post to Mr. Linky or simply list your finds in the comment section!

So, where have I been this week? Check it out:


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!

Currently Reading:
  • 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)

Finished Reading:
  • 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?

WHEN USING MR LINKY, BE SURE TO LINK DIRECTLY TO YOUR POST, AND NOT TO YOUR MAIN PAGE!

I am usually reading one or two (or three) non-fiction at any given time and I also review books, fiction and non-fiction for reviews (to write about). I love Janet Evanovich, Iris Johannsen, Clive Cussler, Kathy Reichs. For non-fiction: Outstanding you by Ron Betta, reviewing: Mind First Dr. Haha Lung, Small Changes for a Better Life by Elizabeth George, (personal), Storm over Moraocco by Frank Romano (for review).

Thanks for finding NaJuReMoNoMo. One of the great things about my challenge is that it's easy to join in the middle. Any novels you read in January count no matter how late into the month you find my site.

Thanks for the link to the New Yorker fiction - that's a great resource for the 100 Shots of Short Challenge.

I have finally given in and borrowed Twilight from my son's friend. All of my female students were obsessed with them last year and I couldn't figure it out. Now that I have been reading so many reviews by adults I felt compelled to pick up a copy!
I just started last night and am liking it so far.

This is just a great idea! Starting next Saturday, count me IN! Yay.

I saw that about Obama and Spiderman. How interesting that is! I think it is a fun idea myself. I would like to think if I were president I could be a character in my favorite book series! Wouldn't that be something?!

I will have to travel on over to The Millions and see that collection. I imagine it was a big undertaking.

I think I will take you up on Surfing Saturdays. Sounds like fun!

Just discovered Surfing Saturdays through the Novel Challenge website. Sounds like a fun idea. Next week, I'll try to get here on time!
