31 Days - 31 Books (days 12 & 13): Mother's Day Edition
(Got back from playing cards after midnight last night, so missed a second day in my meme. Whoops!)

Happy Mother's Day! I took mom (and dad) out to a Mother's Day Brunch at the Crystal Room today. They had a few teething troubles at the brunch and we had a waitress with bad karma, but other than that, it was a lovely time with my mom (and dad). I think she was supposed to get a carnation, too, but that was one of the teething troubles they were having. No matter, I had brought some lilac flowers in a glass for her this morning. Thank you mom for borning us!

Day12 - Book that a friend recommended

The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larsson. My sister was reading the Millennium Trilogy long before the rest of the country was reading it. She bought the first book for dad for Christmas, and it wasn't long before the entire family was reading the series. As I mentioned in an earlier post in this meme, I read much of books 1 & 2 while on our cruise.

Day13 - Book that makes you laugh

Oh, there are many that do this. I have no reservations about laughing out loud while reading, even if I'm alone at a restaurant. But probably the book that has made me laugh out loud the most was Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. I read a lot of it in bed, and remember slapping the bed often while howling in laughter. I suspect the kitties were traumatized by the laughter (but they must have gotten over it since they still sleep with me in bed).

The rest of the 31 days:

I got Lamb from the library on your recommendation & really liked what I read, but it was so popular I only got to have it for 3 wks--& I think this was when I was in the midst of moving--so I never finished it. I'll probably just buy it used off Amazon eventually, if I can't find a used copy 'round here.

Dad bizarrely bought The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for my Mormon brother; even more bizarrely, he had already read it (though he concurred, it's really not his kind of thing). Thus we still have a copy of it, but the only thing I've been reading lately are histories of the Plantagenets & the Wars of the Roses, so I'm not quite ready to shift gears yet.

And happy belated Mother's Day to your mom, too! Thank her for borning youse! :)
