Dropped into one of those deep funks where nothing held my attention for long. My reading was mostly the daily paper, my usual gang of bloggers and news sites, some magazines. I started what should prove to be a way-fun book, Anno Dracula. I mean, really, this should have had me captivated. Dracula comes to England, beats the inept vampire hunters and marries Victoria? Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper, Oscar Wilde and Dr. Moreau, come on! This should be like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Widescreen Edition), but, um...good.
(Should I read the graphic novel? The movie was Teh Suck.)
But for some reason, I couldn't get into it. Maybe it was my disappointment over some recent reading choices, maybe it was just the winter blahs. So, to reset my taste, so to speak, I re-read Clan of the Cave Bear. Yes, again. It seems to be working, though, my mind feels clearer. And I am looking at the stack of unread books from PaperbackSwap and feeling more-than-mild interest.
Many thanks to those who joined PBS and listed me as your referral. More books makes me happy.
