Sundays In Bed With...

Hosted by Kate @ Midnight Book Girl, what are you reading today? Ah, stormy weather. The winds are picking up in good ol' Richmond, Va. We have prepared for Sandy somewhat. Laundry done (not put away yet), we have a kit of nonperishable food (the husband plans to live on Captain Crunch for days), a crapload of water, candles, flashlights, lanterns and...well...books! 

I have downloaded two books to my Nook - Lonesome Dove and In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. I wanted Trinity by Leon Uris but it isn't available for Nooks yet. Oh well. And yes, I know my Nook won't stay charged forever so I have some paperbacks to read too. The comfort book - Little Women. The book still haven't read - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and another comfort book - Wuthering Heights since after Sandy, it may be like walking through the moors. 

I was kind of hoping I wouldn't have to work tomorrow but the business of direct mail marketing doesn't stop regardless of if a tree falls on you. My biggest concern is power. Last year, we lost power for 6 days and my husband and I contemplated divorce after 3 days (no, not really). I'm cleaning the house sorta in case we lose power but eventually I'll sit down with one of my books. 

I am supposed to attend a function tonight for an event I'm involved with but with the weather and with the start of a cold, I don't know. So Kate @ Midnight Book Girl, you can beat me up later if I don't make it tonight. (Blowing a kiss, "Love You" Mean Girls style) ;)

Good selection of books! Yeah, I have officially decided to stay home. Curling up with 77 Shadow Street and the last of your balls. Mom loves them too, so all is forgiven (as long as you pass on the recipe!).

Loved Lonesome Dove!!! However, I usually don't handle really long books very well, so I'm surprised I made it through it!

Well Sandy was a dud for us... But I''m not complaining. Especially after seeing all those pics today from up north.

I've always wanted to read In True Blood. Someday!
