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 :-D 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?
