52 Books in 52 Weeks: The Epic Read-a-thon

So, I've completely lost my mind and decided to enter 2010 Cannonball Read where I will be reading and reviewing one book a week for a whole year. I mean, its not like I don't read anyway... I might as well do something productive with all that commentary in my head. It should be fun at any rate and my friend Anhelo  will be doing it along with me. Let the wild rumpus start!

One of the great things about this is that I officially have an excuse to tell everyone about all the books that I think are awesome. So lets have a breakdown of what my favorite genres are:

1. Science Fiction
2. Fantasy
3. (Secretly) Sappy Mystery Romances
4. Other random things that I pick up in bookstores.

I will be trying to read outside of my genres in a effort to broaden my scope so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Word of the Day

Little bit o'learning:

1) A digression
2) A detailed discussion of some point in a book esp. in an appendix

Well anyone who knows me knows that when I tell a story, I tend to digress. Alot. All over the place. I think its part of my charm but you know... thats me.

So now you can call me an excursus-ing fool! (disclaimer: that is NOT how you use that word. LOL)

Thought Stream

So I've realized something interesting. I'm really sensitive to people's moods and behaviors. So just being around someone who is a bit sad, makes me sad. Actually, not just someone who is sad,but someone that I have a close connection to. What makes it worse is that I'm told I'm a good listener so I'm the confidant and I take in all these different feelings all the time.
The great thing about this realization is that I know now that I can separate what I feel and what is just mirrored and so everyday I feel more like me.
