What Are You Reading: January 03, 2011: 01/02/10
Over the Christmas and New Year's holidays I caught a cold. Between having a cold and being busy with my relatives, I didn't get much reading done. But that's okay. It felt good to have a break. Instead of reading I was going through my digital photos and I was updating my Zazzle store.
Finished Last Week:

I've had The Graveyard Book on my list for awhile now.
Looks like you had a good week. :)

It's worth either reading or listening to. Gaiman does a wonderful job at doing all the different voices of his characters.

You had a good week. I see you listened to some audiobooks last week. That is one delivery method that I just haven't tried yet. I think I read faster than I listen. Happy reading!

I certainly read faster than I can listen to an audio book. The audio books though keep my family entertained on long drives up and down the state.
Comment #5: Monday, January, 3, 2011 at 09:57:34
You did great! I could manage to read only one.
Wish you and your family a very Happy New Year. May 2011 filled with reading!

In previous holiday trips I've read a book a day. So this was a very quiet and slow week of reading for me especially on a holiday. Happy New Year to you as well.

What did you think of The Graveyard Book? I read it over the summer and never fully got a handle on how I felt about it.
Comment #8: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 19:43:04
I first read The Graveyard Book back in May 2009. I loved Dave McKean's illustrations but I think I missed a lot of the details. Listening to the audio version forced me to pay attention and I picked up on a lot of stuff I missed the first time.

I really loved reading The Graveyard Book, now I'm curious about the audio. Sounds like it could be great!
Happy New Year! Have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by earlier!

I've listened to two Neil Gaiman audio books now, The Graveyard Book and Stardust. He does an excellent job doing the voices for his different characters. You should listen to one of his audiobooks sometime if you get a chance.

Wow...how could you read that much in a week? I wish I am a fast reader.
Ouran School is a manga, right?
Happy new year to you :)
Comment #12: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 19:54:08
Two of the books were audio books which we listened to while driving down and up the state. The manga is really short. That just leaves two books of any length that I read.
Ouran High School Host Club is manga. I grabbed the first volume because we just finished watching the anime series which is hilarious.

Oh, I don't even want to think about digital photos. I have gotten miserably behind on those as well. I need to delegate that responsibility to my husband. Maybe then he won't take quite as many!
I loved The Graveyard Book and can't wait to read Princess Academy and Kraken. Enjoy your week!
Comment #14: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:02:11
I only have myself to blame for all the photos. It's my camera, my hobby. The Princess Academy audio was very good. Each chapter starts with a snipet of a song that's relevant to the plot. It really helps build the world. Kraken is so detail rich that I'm only reading a chapter or two a night so I can soak it all in.
Comment #15: Monday, January, 3, 2011 at 22:52:32
omg you did get a lot done!
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:04:25
Not really, not compared to previous years.
Comment #17: Tuesday, January, 4, 2011 at 07:55:41
I adore The Graveyard Book! Hope you liked it too. I caught a cold during Christmas too, which ruined a couple of reading days for me. Annoying, but can't be helped I suppose. Happy New Year!
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:06:57
I did. It was a re-read for me but my first time hearing it as an audio. Neil Gaiman did such a good job reading his own book!
Comment #19: Tuesday, January, 4, 2011 at 08:15:51
Yay for The Graveyard Book!
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:09:18
It was a fun audio book.
Comment #21: Tuesday, January, 4, 2011 at 08:24:29
I am always amazed at how many books you have going at one time! I can't believe I still haven't read a Neil Gaiman book!
Comment #22: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:10:28
Get one of his audio books and then you can Neil Gaiman read to you. He's fun to listen to.
Comment #23: Tuesday, January, 4, 2011 at 20:50:32
I hope you are feeling better! It stinks to be sick at the holidays. There is a lot of that going around at the library where I work. I'd say finishing 5 books and writing those reviews is pretty impressive!
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 20:11:05
The reviews I had written before the trip. All I had to do was post them. I'm almost better. Thanks!
