To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? “A Grown-up Kind of Pretty” by Joshilyn Jackson

What did you recently finish reading? “The Story of Ain’t: America, Its Language, and the most controversial dictionary ever published” by David Skinner

“Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult’s Attempt to UnArrest her Arrested Development; Or, Why It’s Never Too Late For Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not For Dinner” by Jennifer Lancaster

“Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake” by Anna Quindlen

“Seduced by Pain”(Seduced Saga, Book Two, Rose’s Story) by Kimberly Kinrade

“Only Forever”(Short story) by Kimberly Kinrade

“On a Pale Horse”(Incarnations of Immortality, #1) by Piers Anthony (Thanks to Dayle for recommending this book, I loved it! 🙂 Now I wonder if the other 4 are as good!

What do you think you’ll read next? “Forgotten English” by Jeffrey Kacirk

*Yes, I have read ALOT this past week! Mainly because I’ve been sick and am still sick. 😦 When I’m sick, I read a lot more than I usually do!*

Yes! So happy you read “On a Pale Horse”!

There are actually 8 books all together . . . . I’ll admit that some are definitely better than others, but I did enjoy them all . . . and they’re all necessary to get the entire story. Let me know if and when you read the others 🙂

How was ”The Story of Ain’t: America, Its Language, and the most controversial dictionary ever published” by David Skinner? That looks interesting!

8??? wow…I will have to see if the library has all of them, I hope so! I really enjoyed it! 🙂

As for “The Story of Ain’t”, it was very interesting, but REALLY in depth as far as the history of ALL the people involved and every little detail so it wasn’t exactly what I expected BUT it WAS interesting to learn how people acted so uppity about Ain’t and other slang words being considered speech and just how controversial a dictionary could be!

I remember my grandmother being vehemently opposed to “ain’t” . . . and I have to admit, hearing it kind of makes me cringe now 😛

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
