The state of me:

I'm being a slug right now laying on my bed in the air conditioning listening to the birds chattering outside in the 95 degree heat.  

I bought new flowers for the patio and they need to be repotted, but I'm thinking I may wait for the sun to go down tonight.  Laziness has a lot to recommend it at the moment.  

I'm waiting for UPS to deliver my package from Amazon which will contain the latest Janet Evanovich and the new Bon Iver cd. "Holocene" is already my new favorite song and I'm excited to delve into the rest of the record. 

Hubby and I celebrated our 24th anniversary this week and went out for a fancy dinner last night.  It was fun getting dressed up and eating yummy food.  Although I might need to start thinking about getting some exercise in the not-too-distant future.

I've been in a reading drought lately.  Anything that my FL can recommend?

Finally, what's the state of you?

I haven't read much with a cover lately. Have you gotten to A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness? I enjoyed that--good summer read, some fantasy, some reality, some armchair travel, with an intelligent author who doesn't take herself too seriously.

Nephele, I read that one in the spring. I liked it a lot. Not quite to the "loved it" level, but I'll definitely check out the sequel. Thanks for the suggestion though. Congrats on how well Nalini is doing, by the way!

I just got a new YA that I'm going to give a try. Maybe it's also time to pull out The Eight again. I haven't read that one in a while.

My favorite book I've recently read was Dash and Lily's Book of Dares. I also really liked a book called Follow My Lead, by Kate Noble (a historical romance).

I've not heard of either of those. I'll check my library for them.

Thanks for the recommendations!
