Their names are Death, Disease, War, and Sparkle-Darkle Glitter-tits,” Sophie said. “They’re the four little ponies of the Apocalypse.

Christopher Moore, Secondhand Souls (Grim Reaper, #2) 📜 Back when I still loved Christopher Moore. .. the above quote reminds me of that Robot Chicken skit with the My Little Apocalypse Pony ad.. if you have never seen it, look it up on YouTube. It's short and hilarious. If you like macabre humor anyway. 📜 What makes you laugh? Puns? Absurdity? Black humor? Wholesome cute humor? Dad jokes? We all have funny bones, what tickles them?
For me, it's really the dark and or absurd humor. I kind of have a twisted sense of what's funny. Like yesterday, in the middle of the most insane dinner rush ever, a coworker stated an actual fact that set against the backdrop of our current situation (everyone in the weeds, dying) was completely absurd and just busted me up and I had tears I was laughing so hard and my friend genuinely thought my brain had broke. I can't lie, I do appreciate a good pun too, and this same friend is great at supplying me with punny jokes on a daily basis. 📜 Speaking of work, I worked 11 straight hours on Valentine's without even sitting down once. I got to use the bathroom twice. That was it. I'm exhausted. But.. everyone was super nice and I made good money. I'm sorry to post and Ghost again... but I'm going back to work. 🙈 I'll catch up tomorrow, I promise!

*This is both a list of what I’ve read and a rank of what I’ve read so far*
.
.
I’m down 4 books so far this year. 2 physical and 2 audio. I only just discovered Christopher Moore last month and I have officially found somebody else who tells the kind of stories I love to tell. A Dirty Job asks what would happen if a hypochondriac became a grim reaper. It’s an amazing story and the performance on the audiobook will have you dying with laughter. Who knew the words “like bear” would make me belly laugh and become my new favorite combination of words. I bought another book by him after my first day of A Dirty Job.
.
.
Catch and Kill, read by Ronan Farrow, will obliterate your soul and make you want to vomit every couple of minutes, but it is so so worth it. These women and Ronan are amazing.
.
.
Outliers is such a wild and interesting look at how luck and chance can help us succeed. Malcolm is a straight shooter and a man of facts. I can’t wait to read another book by him immediately.
.
.
Slade House...the only meh, boring book on the list. It also is the shortest lol You’re better off skipping this one no matter how much they try to tell you that it’s worth it for King fans.

LOTD- black dress, red lip, pearls. .
Need I say more?
.
Heading to the tasting lunch for the Bacchanalia Gala- one of my perks for being the Gala Chair (which is a volunteer position).
.
It is an excellent perk! Mostly because I don’t get to enjoy the entire menu on the evening- too much else to do!
.
So I woke up early and worked out so I’m still on track- but ya my food is not going to be today!- extra hard morning sweat might equal that out.

‘Jeez,’ Charlie said, turning and looking out the back window.

Minty Fresh seemed to turn his full attention to driving safely now. ‘What the hell are those things?’

‘I call them sewer harpies. They’re the things that call to us from the storm sewers. They’re a lot stronger now than they used to be.’

‘They’re scary is what they are,’ said Minty.

‘I don’t know,’ Charlie said. ‘Have you gotten a good look at them? I mean, they got the badonkadonk out back and some fine ba-joopbadangs up front, know what I’m sayin’, dog? Buss a rock wid a playa?’ He offered his fist for Minty to buss him a rock, but alas, the mint one left him hangin’.

‘Stop that,’ Fresh said.

‘Sorry,’ Charlie said.

‘Talk Like a Playa in Ten Days or Less - Stone Thug Edition?’ Minty asked.

Charlie nodded. ‘We got the CD into the store a couple of months ago. I practice in the van. How am I doing?’

‘Your Negro-osity is uncanny. I had to keep checking to make sure you’re still white.’

This was my favorite book for a very long time until I read #thestand by #stephenking but I still and will forever hold this one close to my heart. It’s the story of Charlie Asher, he is a socially awkward pawn shop owner who just so happens to find himself in a precarious situation as he becomes death, or at least something like it. It’s a dark comedy that’s heart felt and hilarious, it has good guys, villains and lizard people! Nothing short of perfect. #christophermoore #adirtyjob #book #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #shelfie #bookphotography #read #alwaysreading #reading #comedy #darkhumor

So, I just got these two. The second book of a dirty job, which was a really good novel, and one of my favorite alien comics, which has some incredibly amazing xenomorph and character designs. I found there was an extra chapter in this comic seperate from the one I was reading online, so that's new! And they give more sketches and concept arts for the alien which will help me a lot lol.

Día 8. Morrigan
El de ayer, que no me dio lugar a entintarlo.
Quizás me ha quedado más arpía que morrigan, pero me he basado en la imagen que me dejaron las morrigans que describe (o que tengo el recuerdo que describe más bien) Christopher Moore en Un trabajo muy sucio. Lo de comer ojos tampoco recuerdo si está sacado de ahí, pero en una deidad basada en el cuervo tiene que ser plato de su gusto.

Rereading is a comfort.

For years I read a book once and didn’t revisit it. I thought, “There are too many books out there to read. I can’t waste time on one I’ve already read.” But I’ve come to understand that I don’t have to read to reach a quota. I don’t need to reach a Goodreads goal or a page count. I should only do it for fun. That would make me happier. I rewatch movies when I want something I already like. It’s no different with books.

Lately, I’ve seen posts dissing rereading in favor of hitting a higher book count. If this makes you happy then proceed. But I get more out of books when I spend time processing them or rereading them. There is no wrong way to enjoy reading, but you wouldn’t know it by the snobbery you come across. I’m guilty too.
This is my favorite author, Christopher Moore. His books are HILARIOUS.

I will try to read for the love of it. I will read slowly. I will let others enjoy books their way.

"Charlie Asher: 'I accidently shagged a monk last night.'
Minty Fresh: 'Sometimes, in times of crisis, that shit cannot be avoided.'”
―A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore.
I don't own a lot of funny books and there aren't a lot that have made me laugh out loud except this one. It is a gem of a book.

"In order to hold off the Forces of Darkness, you will need a number two pencil and a calendar, preferably one without pictures of kitties on it."
.
I finished A Dirty Job yesterday. It was pretty funny and I liked that characters from Moore's vampire trilogy were infused in this story.
.
Charlie Asher starts seeing red glowing objects after his wife dies. Things just get weirder for Charlie as he collects and redistributes souls while trying to raise his daughter and run a business.
.
The personalities in this book are so odd. The unlikely relationships between characters is what I liked most about this story. When the freakishly strange starts coming off as normal, you know the book has captured your imagination.
.
If death merchants, sewer harpies, little girls with 400lb Hell hounds, and 14 inch squirrel people are your kind of thing, then this book is for you 😂 It's goofy and strange and charming. Such a fun read. I look forward to the sequel.

I want to spend the rest of my day in this spot. I feel like I'm forgetting to do something ... But I think starting NOS4A2 has become priority 😊
.
I'm also listening to Christopher Moore's A Dirty Job on audio at work. Looks like I'll end my year having read 33 or 35 books depending on how busy this month gets. Do the holidays slow down your reading?

It's a Dirty Job {but you can bet somebody's gonna have to do it. I am borrowing this spooky, dark humor novel by Christopher Moore from a friend. In it, we follow a man named Charlie just as his wife dies unexpectedly and he is chosen to become a "death merchant". He's sent to pick up the souls of the dying to protect them while also trying to manage his daily responsibilities as a shop owner and new single parent. I haven't dug too deeply into the story yet, but I know it promises to be an interesting read and just in time for my favorite holiday: Halloween.
So, as I soak in my Witch's Brew, and summon relaxation by candlelight, I nibble on this delectable morsel, made all the more thematic with my bargain purchases from Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Lush, and Target. You only have to wait to Mid-October and all Halloween decor goes to 50% off...you know...to make way for Christmas, which has been inching its way into stores since July.

You don't have to have a big budget to create your own witchy bath. Some black candles, a few paper bats, bargain garland, and a black bathbomb and you're set to relax, Halloween style. Oh, and don't forget a great book too.} #bathsbubblesandbooks, #adirtyjob, #christophermoore, #baths, #halloween, #bathbombs, #bathing, #reading, #books, #selfcare, #relaxation, #witchy, #lush, #michaels, #hobbylobby, #target

It's a Dirty Job {but you can bet somebody's gonna have to do it. I am borrowing this spooky, dark humor novel by Christopher Moore from a friend. In it, we follow a man named Charlie just as his wife dies unexpectedly and he is chosen to become a "death merchant". He's sent to pick up the souls of the dying to protect them while also trying to manage his daily responsibilities as a shop owner and new single parent. I haven't dug too deeply into the story yet, but I know it promises to be an interesting read and just in time for my favorite holiday: Halloween.
So, as I soak in my Witch's Brew, and summon relaxation by candlelight, I nibble on this delectable morsel, made all the more thematic with my bargain purchases from Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Lush, and Target. You only have to wait to Mid-October and all Halloween decor goes to 50% off...you know...to make way for Christmas, which has been inching its way into stores since July.

I'm going to be real here. I love the Pore Cleanser MD. I don't love that I now am sharing pictures of pores on my feed. 🤢Like it actually makes me pretty uncomfortable, hence the cover photo - swipe to be grossed out & amazed. BUT...with 10,000 little pores on each of our faces and knowing that over 70% of people really dislike the look of their pores, I'm hoping this helps someone. I can tell you with a queasy stomach, the results really are are good as they look.
.
The Pore Cleanser MD tool isn’t a “once and done”, but something that will continue to give you better and better results with consistent use over time, once weekly for a mere 2 min.
.
If you'd like to have an offline conversation (because eww pores), I'm happy to help and to keep it between the two of us! 🤫

Lubicie książki z humorem?🤣 Satyrycznym, rubasznym, chwilami na granicy przyzwoitości?🤩
Hybrisa i ja, Sol, uwielbiamy, zwłaszcza w wykonaniu Moore'a😍
Brudna robota oszałamia pomysłami, hipnotyzuje i wciąga. Jest na przemian przezabawna i bardzo smutna, zawsze dynamiczna i pełna zwrotów akcji, a przy tym nie przypomina żadnej innej książki. Obecne pokolenie doczekało się swojego Vonneguta, Robbinsa i Swifta w jednym. Amen.

Purple 💜 the first color that was sintesed.. "One Monday, just for sport, Charlie grabbed an eggplant that a spectacularly wizened granny was going for, but instead of twisting it out of his hand with some mystic kung fu move as he expected, she looked him in the eye and shook her head - just a jog, barely perceptible really - it might have been a tic, but it was the most eloquent of gestures. Charlie read it as saying: O White Devil, you do not want to purloin that purple fruit, for I have four thousand years of ancestors and civilization on you; my grandparents built the railroads and dug the silver mines, and my parents survived the earthquake, the fire, and a society that outlawed even being Chinese; I am mother to a dozen, grandmother to a hundred, and great-grandmother to a legion; I have birthed babies and washed the dead; I am history and suffering and wisdom; I am a Buddha and a dragon; so get your fucking hand off my eggplant before you lose it." - A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

⠀⠀
Happy Saturday, my lovely bookworms!
⠀⠀
My minion free-ish day was super productive! I was able to get the back bedroom half way cleared out for the tiniest minion, but more importantly I finally really got into Teeth in the Mist! It’s so much darker, weirder, and more gothic than I thought it would be and I am totally into it.
⠀⠀
If you haven’t read anything by Christopher Moore, then do yourself a favor and go grab one of his books. They’re funny, smart, and more than a tad ridiculous. Basically, they’re a super fun read that still makes you think. A Dirty Job and Lamb are my hands down favorites.
A quick note to all my friends stuck in the insane heat wave with me...be careful! This heat is no joke. Keep hydrated, and stay in the air conditioning as much as possible. Be safe, darlings! ——————————————————
QOTD: Let’s do some predictive text for this sweltering Saturday! “It’s a dirty job, but____________.”
AOTD: “It’s a dirty job, but I’m so excited to be back in here again.” 😂

"sim, fora um astucioso macho beta que descobrira o fogo primeiro e, sim, o fogo logo tinha sido quase que imediatamente tomado das mãos dele por um macho alfa. Mesmo assim, a fagulha original ainda brilha nas veias de cada macho beta. Mesmo quando os alfas já tinham abandonado havia tempos os fogos e passado a se dedicar à mulheres e aos esportes, os betas continuavam buscando a pirotecnia ainda na última fase da adolescência, e muitas vezes até mesmo depois dela.
E que prova maior de um macho beta fascinado por fogos de artificio do que a ausência de dois importantes dedos? Quando Hu Três Dedos abriu sua valise revelando o que tinha, Charlie achou que tinha passado pelas chamas do inferno para, finalmente, chegar ao paraíso." Quase um ano pra ler metade dessa belezinha, e então dois dias pra ler a outra metade.
Que leitura foda @anapesouza @lordgutus

My favorite mug I found at the goodwill. It belonged to Martha. I like to think Martha is an elderly woman that didn’t like being called “grandmother”. She is in good shape, bottle bleach blonde hair and said things like “asshole”. She is not afraid to call out religious bigots on street corners. She faked her death and ran off to the keys to tend bar and goes by the name Marti. It’s much better than the probable truth of an elderly woman dying of cancer and her kids dumping all her stuff at the goodwill, including the mug someone made for her. #goodwill #hipgrandmother #adirtyjob #christophermoore

A Könyvhét ürügyén beszerzett könyveim. 😄 Már tegnapelőtt megérkezett a csomag, de a Mocskos melót cserélni kellett, - a csere ma délelőtt ment végbe - így úgy gondoltam, inkább egyben fotózom le őket, amikor mindegyikből megvan a megfelelő kiadás.
A Valós halál az újrakiadása bejelentésétől kezdve felkeltette az érdeklődésemet, ami az adaptáció megnézése után még tovább növekedett - ha egy kritika által meg is tudtam, hogy az egyik adaptációs kedvencem, azaz Poe nincs benne. Az A papírsereglet és más történetek is már a megjelenése óta érdekelt, de a Love, Death & Robots sorozat után vált elengedhetetlenné a beszerzése, mivel a kedvenc animációs epizódomat Liu novellájából készítették. Az Érkezés és más novellák motivációját ugyancsak az adaptáció hozta meg, ami a kemény vonalas, lenyűgöző élményeim között szerepelt. A Mocskos melóra még évekkel ezelőtt a Könyvfesztiválra készülve figyeltem fel, elég morbidnak ígérkezik mind szituációban, mind humorban ahhoz, hogy valószínűsíthetően tetszen. A Láthatatlan bolygókhoz pedig Ken Liu válogató szerepe hozta meg a kedvem, illetve a szándékom, hogy jobban nyitok a sci-fi felé.

THROWBACK THURSDAY - FOURTEEN -
.
I can't believe I've done fourteen of these! Wild!! Speaking of wild, have you ever read anything by Christopher Moore? He always has a quirky tale to tell and A Dirty Job does not disappoint. This one sounds dark, which it is, but it's also extremely funny. A characteristic of Moore's books.
.
.
Synopsis below:
.
Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy with a normal life, married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy. They're even about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay—until people start dropping dead around him, and everywhere he goes a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Charlie Asher, it seems, has been recruited for a new position: as Death.
.
It's a dirty job, but hey! Somebody's got to do it.
.
.
.
.
LETS PLAY A PREDICTIVE TEXT GAME! "I'm the new grim reaper and you can call on me to ..."
.
Here's mine: I'm the new grim reaper and you can call on me to do it for the opportunity of working with a dash of cinnamon.

Book Number 5 of 2019: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

Considering I had never heard of Moore or his work prior to October of 2018, I can honestly say I’m thoroughly obsessed with him now. I already have another book of his lined up for later this year (after I finish a few books that have been on my list for significantly longer). He’s a fantastic writer who seems to pull premises out of material that’s been done to death.

ADJ centers around Charlie, an anxious man that owns a second hand store who has to cope with being a widower, a single father, and a Grim Reaper all by the end of the first chapter.

Highly recommend.

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore
4.9/5 stars!
I love it when Moore adds just a touch of reality and an emotional aspect into his books and that's just what I got with this wild ride. This book follows Charlie Asher, and he's just been chosen to be the next Death (essentially). The story is set in the same world as Moore's vampire series so we met up with a lot of familiar characters: The Emperor, Lazarus and Bummer, and Inspector Rivera to name a few. It was kind of a nice blast from the past, as I've already completed his vampire trilogy, and loved it. I loved the familial aspect in this, alongside the zaniness that is Moore. Also, the depictions and descriptions of love were amazing, regarding Charlie and his wife, Rachel. The side characters were hilarious and Charlie's relationship with each of them was unique and quirky. I enjoyed Charlie's character progression very much as well. There were a few parts that were slow, but never slow enough for me to lose interest.
All in all, I loved this book, and it was one of my favorites Moore has done (so far that I've read)! I look forward to picking up the sequel to this next!

We're down to the nitty gritty for my TBR (not including the three books I have on my side table)! I'm so excited to have it down to this level. A lot of books you saw in the last picture of my TBR were DNFs. I'll have a small video mostly likely of the books I'm getting rid of. Hopefully, I enjoy some of these last few books I have on here before I build it back up! There are a few books I will be buying soon, but not many. Promised myself I'd get through most, if not all, of these books before buying a bunch more!

So, after whining about being a baby and not being able to read I got so many suggestions from you guys ❤️❤️❤️
I got Christopher Moore and Joe Brainard, I got Joan Didion on ebook and I bought a bunch of the other books on your suggestion list, and the rest I have in my bookshelf, so I'm all in! Thank you for making me want to read again! ❤️ .
Oh, and I borrowed the new Sara Stridsberg novel, because she is the greatest Swedish writer working today, and she didn't see the Swedish Nobel Academy approaching her standards, so she quit them and I love her for that. Old slimy men should know their time is up.

Ямщик, не гони лошадей

После истории про отрубленные пальцы читательница попросила разобрать другие штуки из книжек Дэвида Вонга, чтобы не было страшно читать его в оригинале. Ну и чтобы вы узнали, что это за дядька такой, вдруг вам тоже понравится его сумасшедшее творчество.

Дядька весёлый — впервые я о нём узнала из статьи «6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person», которая открыла глаза миллионам американцев. Даже боюсь о ней рассказывать, вдруг она и вам что-нибудь откроет. Мне вот открыла, что у автора есть книжка «John Dies at the End» и чувство юмора. Ну, и конечно я решила её почитать.

Лирическое отступление. Лет десять назад посмотрела чёрную-чёрную комедию «Пятница. 12», и так она была прекрасна, что сразу же прочитала все гневные рецензии. И в одной из них встретила чудесное слово «трэш-хоррор», которым с тех пор и описываю все подобные штуки. В хорошем смысле, да.

Так вот, Дэвид Вонг — тот ещё трэш-хоррор. Всего он написал четыре книжки, три из которых про Джона, а в описании четвёртой есть nightmarish villains with superhuman enhancements. Может, когда-нибудь прочитаю остальные, а пока у меня хорошие новости — в первой части нет ничего сложного.

Честно хотела рассказать про кошмарный сленг, идиомы или хоть что-нибудь, что могло бы помешать вам насладиться чтением, но ничего такого там нет. Самые обычные слова, даже проще #ADirtyJob.

А потом вспомнила, что одна штука там точно была, и она как-то связана с дробовиком. Чтобы вы поняли, что такое трэш-хоррор — слово «shotgun» в тексте встречается 41 раз. И да, я просмотрела их все. И на сорок первом поняла, что это было в другой книжке.

Ну а потом просмотрела все остальные, и наконец нашла:

Justin leaned out the driver’s side and shouted, “Dude, come on, you’re riding shotgun.”

Чувак, камон, ты едешь на дробовике. И правда круто. Только это никакой не трэш-хоррор, это романтическая комедия, и дробовиков там нет. А «shotgun» значит всего лишь переднее сиденье автомобиля. Потому что во времена Дикого Запада рядом с кучером сидел охранник с дробовиком и защищал экипаж от грабителей. И в этот раз я даже не выдумываю.

THROWBACK THURSDAY - FOURTEEN -

I can't believe I've done fourteen of these! Wild!! Speaking of wild, have you ever read anything by Christopher Moore? He always has a quirky tale to tell and A Dirty Job does not disappoint. This one sounds dark, which it is, but it's also extremely funny. A characteristic of Moore's books.
.
.
Synopsis below:
.
Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy with a normal life, married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy. They're even about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay—until people start dropping dead around him, and everywhere he goes a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Charlie Asher, it seems, has been recruited for a new position: as Death.
.
It's a dirty job, but hey! Somebody's got to do it.
.

LETS PLAY A PREDICTIVE TEXT GAME! "I'm the new grim reaper and you can call on me to ..."

Here's mine: I'm the new grim reaper and you can call on me to do it for the opportunity of working with a dash of cinnamon.

Happy Saturday, my lovely bookworms!
⠀⠀
My minion free-ish day was super productive! I was able to get the back bedroom half way cleared out for the tiniest minion, but more importantly I finally really got into Teeth in the Mist! It’s so much darker, weirder, and more gothic than I thought it would be and I am totally into it.
⠀⠀
If you haven’t read anything by Christopher Moore, then do yourself a favor and go grab one of his books. They’re funny, smart, and more than a tad ridiculous. Basically, they’re a super fun read that still makes you think. A Dirty Job and Lamb are my hands down favorites.
A quick note to all my friends stuck in the insane heat wave with me...be careful! This heat is no joke. Keep hydrated, and stay in the air conditioning as much as possible. Be safe, darlings! ——————————————————
QOTD: Let’s do some predictive text for this sweltering Saturday! “It’s a dirty job, but____________.”
AOTD: “It’s a dirty job, but I’m so excited to be back in here again.” 😂

I got Christopher Moore and Joe Brainard, I got Joan Didion on ebook and I bought a bunch of the other books on your suggestion list, and the rest I have in my bookshelf, so I'm all in! Thank you for making me want to read again! ❤️ .
Oh, and I borrowed the new Sara Stridsberg novel, because she is the greatest Swedish writer working today, and she didn't see the Swedish Nobel Academy approaching her standards, so she quit them and I love her for that. Old slimy men should know their time is up.

Oggi, 2 novembre, ho selezionato una divertentissima lettura per tentare di esorcizzare un pochino questa triste giornata! 😊
📚📚📚
"Un lavoro sporco" di Christopher Moore, pubblicato da Elliot a partire dal 2007 (questa è l'edizione del 2016).
📚📚📚
Di seguito la folle trama:
"Charlie Asher è contento, felice, appagato. Una bella moglie in attesa di un figlio. Un negozio di roba usata. Amici con i quali scambiare le solite quattro chiacchiere. Un'esistenza tranquilla. Quando l'adorata Rachel perde la vita dando alla luce la dolce Sophie, la situazione prende decisamente una brutta, bruttissima piega. Charlie, distrutto, inizia a vedere persone e oggetti che non dovrebbero esserci. Che non dovrebbero esistere. Un uomo altissimo color verde menta che appare e scompare a proprio piacimento. Enormi volumi usciti dal nulla che luccicano e si aprono su pagine dense di segreti sull'aldilà. Messaggi misteriosi conditi da teschi e ossa. Corvi spettrali che svolazzano in ogni dove. Conoscenti, amici o perfetti sconosciuti che cominciano a morire. I casi sono due: o Charlie sta impazzendo o qualcosa, qualcuno, l'ha scelto per una missione neppure troppo piacevole. Qualcuna, più precisamente, con tanto di falce e sudario nero vuole essere sostituita o aiutata."
📚📚📚
Auguro a tutti di passare una serena giornata e spero di non risultare troppo inopportuno con questa lettura decisamente sopra le righe!

Lubicie książki z humorem?🤣 Satyrycznym, rubasznym, chwilami na granicy przyzwoitości?🤩
Hybrisa i ja, Sol, uwielbiamy, zwłaszcza w wykonaniu Moore'a😍
Brudna robota oszałamia pomysłami, hipnotyzuje i wciąga. Jest na przemian przezabawna i bardzo smutna, zawsze dynamiczna i pełna zwrotów akcji, a przy tym nie przypomina żadnej innej książki. Obecne pokolenie doczekało się swojego Vonneguta, Robbinsa i Swifta w jednym. Amen.

I want to spend the rest of my day in this spot. I feel like I'm forgetting to do something ... But I think starting NOS4A2 has become priority 😊
.
I'm also listening to Christopher Moore's A Dirty Job on audio at work. Looks like I'll end my year having read 33 or 35 books depending on how busy this month gets. Do the holidays slow down your reading?

I often go weeks without finishing a book because I start new ones without finishing my current book. Look at all my started reads. I like to read the same way I watch shows: several at a time. I pick up what my mood dictates.
