Notes in the Margin

I feel as if my reading has been slowing down a bit but I did manage to finish two books. Both books (reviews below) have got me thinking about depression.  I will post something personal on that topic later. Although I have started a few more books, I keep getting distracted by the Olympics and other good television. Since getting DVR, I have become a bit of a television junkie.

Some of my favorites:

LOST
FRINGE
MODERN FAMILY
HOUSE
PROJECT RUNWAY
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY/NEW YORK CITY (embarrassed to admit that one)
GLEE
GREEK

And then there are all of those great shows on the premium channels:

DEXTER
BIG LOVE
NURSE JACKIE
CALIFORNICATION
TRUE BLOOD  (I have a love-hate relationship with this show)

I'm on the verge of turning into a couch potato!  Especially since the weather lends itself to staying indoors and hibernating.  In other news, these books landed on my doorstep over the last week:

THE LONELY POLYGAMIST  by Brady Udall (ARC)
A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD by Jennifer Egan (ARC)
THE POACHER'S SON by Paul Doiron (B&N First Look)
HERESY by S.J. Parris (ARC)

For my fellow children's book fans, I will have something special for you next week.  There will be a giveaway of some downloadable audio book titles that are really great.

I think it's going to be a great year for reading!!!

haha, I know what you mean about having a love/hate relationship with True Blood!

I just found your blog through "You Can Never Have Too Many Books." :-)

Keeping the Feast has such a pretty cover! Looking forward to the review!
