TSS – Indy-cision 500 ~ Greatest Speculation in Reading

The Sunday Salon.com

Happy Memorial Day to those in the US, and Happy Sunday to everyone 🙂  Today is one of the biggest days in racing, the Indianapolis 500, and I am wishing for a nice warm and sunny race day,  and for the rain to wait until AFTER the race.  Actually, one of my favorite Indy finishes was Dario Franchitti’s win a couple years ago.  The rain started falling in the last lap or so, and by the time he crossed the finish line, it was pouring down and his wife, the lovely Ashley Judd, came running out to kiss and love on him and congratulate her love.   I’m rooting for Danica Patrick… again…  maybe this will be her year 😀   Who are you rooting for?


On the book front, I’ve been a bit distracted and slow lately.  But now, all of a sudden, I have an excited desire to read everything, at once, as if the end of the world is near, and I’ve got a limited time to get through every good book ever written. 

And I’m having a hard time figuring out which one to read next!  I think I’ll read You Suck:  a Love Story by Christopher Moore next.  But…  I have an extra copy of Goblins! by Royce Buckingham for a giveaway, and I could read it next.  OR….. I also have an extra copy to give away of The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy, so I could read that next….  but I have Katka by Stephen Meier to read for a June 9th blog tour date, so maybe I should be responsible and read it next.   And in the “being responsible” vein, I have Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan to read for Barnes & Nobles First Look program, so maybe Bees should be next.  And I’ve been stalled out in Emma by Jane Austen for ages, so maybe I should focus on finishing her up.

Oh, what to read!  What to read! 

So what are you reading?


And HERE is the Starting Field for the 93rd running of the Indianapolis 500! Danica is starting in 10th position, and Dario is 3rd.

Who do you like to win the race?

  1. I know what my dad will be doing today–watching the races. 🙂 I know what you mean about being excited to read everything at once. So many books look good right now! If only I was able to read them all at once. I hope you are able to figure out what you want to read. 🙂 I am finishing up No One You Know by Michelle Richmond and then will be reading Defending Angels by Mary Stanton to mix things up a little. Have a great rest of the weekend!

  2. I have always been fascinated by wives who run out and kiss their guys after games, especially basketball or tennis. I could never be a reporter for those events. I’d be gagging and insisting the sports champion of the world get into the shower IMMEDIATELY. Is car racing like that? Should I rescind my sports interviewer application form? Should I be trying to appreciate the sport instead of worrying about the sweat? These are the sorts of things that keep one up at night (in addition to, what book to read next?)

  3. I don’t follow racing at all, even though we lived in the heart of NASCAR country for 5 years. I’m about to finish

  4. Whoops, I hit enter by mistake! I’m about to finish MATING RITUALS OF THE NORTH AMERICAN WASP and plan to start THE HOST next.

  5. I love and hate the dilemma when the time comes to choose a new book! I know all of the books on my shelves are good, but what do I feel like reading next? So tricky. I actually make myself little mini-TBRs of books I’m especially excited about and would like to read in a row, maybe 5 books or so. It eliminates that agonizing choosing problem and I still get to read what I really want to read. =)

    Right now, it’s Shanghai Girls by Lisa See!

  6. I’m not into NASCAR at all, so have no favorite. Of Bees and Mist is a very intriguing title so I’d start there. Have a wonderful week.

  7. I’ve read Triumph of Deborah and loved it. No idea about the rest.
