But I still haven’t been able to settle down for a good long read today. Just the Sunday book review supplements and a few pages of my current book, Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. I’m reading it for several different challenges, and so far it seems pretty good. Of course, I haven’t gotten very far into it yet. If you’ve read it, you know it has a rather vivid description of a murdered dog as its opening paragraph. It took me some effort to get past that, but I’m pressing on. I’ve heard good things about the novel, so I’m hoping I won’t be too grossed out as Mark and I proceed with the story.
Aside from that, my only other bookish activity today has been playing around with my WordPress blog, which I set up months ago and then never really used. Today I posted a bunch of reviews over there, just to see how the site works. Complete waste of time, I know, but it was fun.
I’m not sure whether I’d like WordPress better than Blogspot/Blogger. I know a lot of book bloggers seem to have switched over. And my cousins (who have wonderful taste and are a lot brighter than I am) have recently transferred their blogs to WordPress. So it must have advantages, yes? So far, WordPress seems fairly easy to use and I like their templates. But Blogger appears a little more versatile. What do you think? Well, I'm a creature of habit, and I think I need to play around with it a little more before I do any moving or transferring.
And that’s about it. The week coming up is Book Bloggers Appreciation Week. I haven’t really been doing much about that, but I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s posts. Should be interesting. After all, book bloggers certainly deserve a lot of appreciation – don’t we?
