Time to Read


Anna and the French Kiss  Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail  Grey Griffins: The Clockwork Chronicles #1: The Brimstone Key  Mastering XPages: A Step-by-Step Guide to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language
I'm off on a trip for business, and taking with my a varied set of books, displayed above. The first three are for My Comfy Chair review (and pleasure), while the last is for technical review (and napping).

This rare opportunity to actually have time to read is presented because I have a fifteen hour trip ahead of me. I'd better put it to good use. Now, how to choose? Even better, which would you choose? (That way, I can blame it on you.)

Update: I couldn't wait, and read Anna and the French Kiss before I took off. Review soon, but in the meantime, I got another book to take on my trip. More decisions...

  2. Nikki - Thanks for stopping by. (I put the covers up, as it is so much more attractive that way.)

    You may be right about the Grey Griffins, although the guilty truth is that I have them shown in the order that they are tempting me. I have heard so many virtual squeals over Anna and the French Kiss that I want to see what the fuss is about. Decisions, decisions.

  3. lol! I'm with Nikki, making my crusader rounds. Um, I would write than read. But if I had to read, I would read Math Doesn't Suck. ;)

  4. Writing is one thing I cannot do on the plane. I am 6'6", and even paying for extra legroom (that horrible innovation they have added recently), I barely fit into the seat. I can hold a book awkwardly, looking rather than a T-Rex, but I can't find a way to write, unless it is Da Vinci style, over my head.

  7. Another Crusader here! Hello!

    A set of chronicles sounds fun for a long trip, unless the books aren't that good. Better take a variety with you!

  8. Hello fellow crusader! I'd have to go with Grey Griffins - that looks like an intriguing cover.

  11. Guilty admission: I didn't even make it to my trip to read Anna and the French Kiss. I might be able to finish my review before I get on the place. I will update my post with my new book choice (that arrived in the mail as I was about to leave).

  12. Hiya, buddy crusader! I'm making the rounds today and checking out your blog. Nice to meet you, and Happy Friday! :) I confess I haven't read any of these books. Bad me. ;o)

  16. I would go with Grey Griffins first. Then, after that, there's a chance you might be feeling bad that you didn't read something intellectual. So you should follow up Grey Griffins with Why Match Doesn't Suck. :-)
