Can't Breathe...Writing

SO BUSY.  Until yesterday, I did  nothing all week--almost literally--except work, parent, and write.  Wake up, get Adam ready for school, go to work, work, pick up Adam, come home, feed him/play with him/read to him, Mike puts him to bed, and I write till it's time to sleep.  Did not turn the TV on (okay, we watched some Curious George--that's parenting).  Did not open a book except on the bus ride to work.  My brain is fried.

But I'm on target page-wise, and being allowed to read again someday is a great inspiration.  Since I don't have any content to offer for the past week, really, this post will be a list of the books I had to return to the library unread.  I made a list, so I can run back out and check them out next month.  Because I really, really, really like to read.

In case you hadn't noticed.

Young Miles – Lois McMaster Bujold
Windup Girl --Paolo Bacigalupi
Troubled Waters – Sharon Shinn
Vampire Zero -- David Wellington
Deliverance – James Dickey
The Left Hand of God – Paul Hoffman
Slammerkin – Emma Donoghue
The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch
Her Fearful Symmetry – Audrey Niffenegger
The Alleluia Files – Sharon Shinn
Parable of the Sower – Octavia E. Butler
Grave Goods – Ariana Franklin
My Bonny Light Horseman – L. A. Meyer
Nocturnes – Kazuo Ishiguro
Passage – Connie Willlis
South of Broad – Pat Conroy

I'm not sure I'll run straight back out for all of them--some I'm willing to wait a while on. Her Fearful Symmetry I might get on audiobook if the reader is good. I'm also pretty excited to pick up Matched, by Ally Condi, about which I've heard very good things.

Twitching and writing,
