Hooked on a Feeling

I made the mistake of clicking on that awful Hasselhoff video that’s making the rounds and haven’t been able to get this terrible song out of my head for 2 days. That teaches me to click on something for the morbid curiosity. If you must, go here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So, I’m back in school. I’m trying to get studying done as well as a bit of spinning and/or knitting every night. I didn’t knit at all last semester and almost lost my mind. The needles soothe me and I was crazy to give them up. Send me your good statistics and cost-benefit analysis vibes. I think I’m going to need them.

One more housekeeping detail. Last year around this time lots of people were signing up to read 50 books over the course of 2005. I didn’t sign up, but thought “I can do that – I read all the time.” I actually read 25 books last year. Not bad considering I was in school, but I’m a little surprised it wasn’t more. Anyone else try this? How many books did you read last year? I’m going to keep track again this year and see where I am in December. My ‘to read’ shelf is huge (Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Anthony Bourdain, Amy Tan, Gregory Maguire, Diana Gabaldon). There is no shortage of books in my house!

  1. Reading has gone by the wayside for me — everytime I try, I fall asleep on the couch. I think law school, etc., kind of ruined pleasure reading for me. alas.

  2. I read 77 books last year, without being aware of any kind of sign-up. Of course, a lot of that was trash. No Bourdain or Gabaldon on the list. Lots of Pilcher and Binchy, a.k.a. Brain Candy.
