Ha ha, this is going to be a normal TMT for a chasnge!
TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature that oozed from the brains of Brittersweet from PLEASE FEED the BOOKWORM, and myself, after a mind-melting Armchair BEA Twitter party. It is a weekly, or bi-weekly feature depending on your reading style, where we ask you what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be reading next from your TBR pile, and why. Pili from In Love With Handmade is our first lovely follower, and we luff her so much! We are all so curious why people read what they read.
I am finishing up my last two review books for the year. I seem to have been doing more blogging things these last couple of weeks, so I am still reading the Napoleon Xylophone sequel, Xyz, which came from the publisher at the request of the author. I also read my first graphic novel last week, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil. I really enjoyed it. It was pretty off-beat. I won a beautiful hardcover edition from First Reads, and am sending it off to my cousin, Aphid (David), now that I am finished. Gotta love those free Sir Isaac Newton Birthday celebration gifts. I just started another review ebook from Kathy at I Am a Reader Not a Writer, Ghost Moon Night. It doesn't specify, but I think it is a Horror story, and it is set in the Philippines.
It was whispered years ago that when a pirate cursed a Philippine village with langbuan, or flying undead, a boy received a secret that would protect him from certain death. But even armed with a secret, can anyone survive the undead for long? ~ Goodreads synopsis
SO... from the day after Christmas, until St. Patrick's Day, it is my self proclaimed Winter of My Self (reading) Content!! I will be reading what I want, when I want.
Yes, I might even read a book about electronics, guitar electronics most likely
I will read where I want...
