Hello! Hope your week was nice– mine was kind of blah. I had to work six full days instead of my usual five, and I’m super tired. I think the weather is affecting my mood, too (it’s been overcast/rainy all week), and it probably doesn’t help that I leave for work in darkness and come back home in darkness, either. My job is only going to last for another two and a half weeks or so, though, so maybe for my next job I can find something that starts a little later in the day, eh?
Guess what? My Nook Color showed up this week! Though it’s weirdly heavy, I like it a lot so far. I’m planning on doing a full review and whatnot later on, after I’ve explored all the bits and figured out how to do everything. First impression is that it’s neat-o, and I like the bigger screen for watching videos and playing games. Yay!
At this point I think I’m two books away from meeting my yearly reading goal, which is very exciting! I can totally finish two books this month, although at the rate I’m reading my current book even THAT seems an uphill battle. I keep getting distracted by other stuff? Maybe I need to switch to audiobooks again. Hm.
Christmas is coming up soon (duh) and I’ve finally let myself start listening to holiday music. YAY! Here’s one of my favorite songs, in case you’re bored and want to listen to something:

I’m still reading Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams, though at this point I’m about halfway through and it’s AWESOME. It’s kind of like The Lost City of Z, only the focus is divided more evenly between the author’s adventures and the historical explorer’s adventures. Yay!
I’ve also started reading Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth on my Nook Color. I watched the newish movie version and while it wasn’t all that good, it DID make me want to read the original book. I keep getting bits of it confused with Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World, which I haven’t actually read but which I think I saw a movie adaptation of once. I like lost world stories– well, any kind of exploration story, really. Explorers and adventurers and people who go out and look at stuff nobody’s looked at before (or haven’t looked at in a while, etc) is exciting stuff! Don’t you think?
What’re you reading this week?
