Books To Read, Time, & Farewell Until After Christmas

I can’t believe I forgot about my Thursday Thirteen. I guess it’s a little late to do it now. I got wrapped up watching Season 1 of Weeds. It’s been a while since I’ve watched it.

Then, I finished reading James Patterson’s Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. I’ll have to write a review for it. I’m actually a little behind on my book reviewing. I’ve finished The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil, Free Culture by Lawrence Lessig (finished it a couple of months ago), and now Maximum Ride. Plus, I’m still working on C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia and Fantastic Voyage by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman.

Yes, I’ve got a lot of book reviewing to do. On top of that, I have an overflowing bookshelf that seriously needs to be worked through.

I probably should’ve read more than one book this week, especially since it was my lazy week. With Christmas coming up next week, I will need to clear off some space for my new books. It probably won’t hurt to finish one or two over the weekend.

Being lazy for a week makes you realize how much you actually needed to get done during that time. I guess I can get to work on things next week.

I still haven’t gotten Books In Bed running perfectly yet. I want to start a Zadie Smith fansite sometime in the near future. Create a new theme for this website. Read a few of the 30 books or so on my to-read shelf. And many more things on my neverending list of things to do.

What I need more than anything is more time. I’m already starting to worry about how many days I have left before classes start back, which is January 8. The beginning of the last semester of my education, at least for a while.

I’m now stopping myself from starting a full-blown rant on useless information, and I will bid my readers farewell for a few days. I’ll be heading home for Christmas until Tuesday. Unless, I find the time to get on the Internet to blog for a few minutes while I’m at my dad’s, I’ll be away from the blogosphere until next week.

Farewell. And Merry Christmas!

One final note: Go check out my sister’s website,, if you’re looking to bring some holiday cheer into another blogger’s life.

    The overwhelming thing I “heard” in your post is that you need to find time for things you want/need to do, and sure enough you said it at the end. I bet you’ll find a way to do them. I’ll stop by your sister’s website. 🙂

    Have a great time with your family and Merry Christmas Justin! 🙂

    Yes, I need lots of time. I think I’ve got most of the laziness out of me now. I did needed this week of rest pretty bad. Now I’ve got it, and I can’t complain, for at least a little while, about needing to get some rest.

    I almost can’t wait until next week when I can just sit back and read a few books. Plus, I’ve watched nearly every movie in my collection that I think I can watch for a while.
