The books I ordered just arrived!

*runs off to read*

Current mood: excited.

Well, I ordered that book yesterday (from amazon), but apparently it's not in stock, so now I have to wait until the middle of July to read it :(

Current mood: disappointed.

Yes, I know I said I'd post more often now ^we're back, but life got in the way again ^_^;; This weekend is going to be busy, as well, but I'm going to have to start making a point of posting, otherwise I'll never get into the habit. It's just so terribly hard to drag myself away from what I'm doing (mostly reading, recently) to use the computer ^_^;

Speaking of books, I've decided my next 'project' is going to be James Joyce's Ulysses, a wonderful 1000 page tome, that I can completely lose myself in. The book supposedly has a good re-reading value, as well, so I'm sure it'll be worth the money :)

Current mood: cheerful.

I seem to have amassed a huge reading list for the next week o_O

Everyone seems to like Stephen Baxter's books, so ^we're in the middle of reading three (don't ask ^_^;) of his stories (two novels, one short story collection). I went to the library last week and I still have four books to read (I'm waiting for us to go away, so I'll have time to savor them ^_^), which should all be exceptionally wonderful :)

I feel quite bad for not using this journal more, but I'm afraid life has gotten in the way over the past few months... I'll try and post more often after ^we get back ^_^

Oh, and-

behind the screen...
:)

Current mood: cheerful.

28th March, 2004. 12:41 pm. Relaxing by the lake in the sun

(crossposted to viridion)

I've spent the morning (and the past few weeks!) reading, today burying my nose and mind in Bricks and Flowers, the memoirs of Katherine Everett (Angie was shopping yesterday and found a copy of it in a charity shop from 1951, and I really love to read originals ^_^). I'm working on building up our real-world library- secondhand charity shops and the British equivalent of garage sales, car boots, are wonderful places to find cheap yet fantastic books ^_^

My library in Viridion is a nice place to read, but somedays I like to wander outside and sit by the small lake in the house's grounds, to sit with a couple of books under the trees in the sunshine and just relax and let the world flow away, as I travel to the worlds in the books I read :)

Current mood: calm.

I haven't posted anything in a month!

I feel kinda baaaaad ^_^;;

I don't really have anything to say other than that I'm reading a lot, and don't really front much (I don't see much need to, to be honest ^_^;). Funnily enough, the body looks more like me than anyone else *smiles*

It's so interesting though, being able to watch a writer (kitgreen) crafting a story out of someone else's bits and pieces of half-remembered things... It's also very interesting being able to talk to a dragon every morning :)

She (Angie, I mean) has an idea, the spark, singular essence of a story, that slowly evolves and changes, becoming something almost untrappable by pen and paper in a way, translating a thing that has an unfathomable meaning into something understandable without loosing any of the originality of the thing... It's like trying to preserve a cloud, or the way a sunbeam hits a tree's branches in the summer- she describes it with such delicacy, like a chef serving a gourmet three-course meal!

I love the way Angie sees this world, and the way she uses writing to put forward that intensely unique viewpoint she has.

Observing the way everyone in here interacts (when I'm not in my wonderful library) is a definite learning experience ^_^;

I was half-watching a TV program (with Bi, I think- we have actually bonded quite a bit over the past few weeks, we have more in common than I thought ^_^), and one of the people in this program had access to a big blank book. When you whispered the name of a different book to the blank book and opened it, the blank pages would become the pages of the whispered book, filling with text! I wish I had one of these- think of being able to carry the world's libraries around with you in a single book ^_^ Only problem is there would no longer be any need to go to libraries, and I dearly love those places ^_^;

I'm a bit sleeeeeepy, so I'm going to bed~

Current mood: sleepy.
