You Suck

Ah, not really, but I finished reading this (thanks Pam for letting me know about it):

I love Christopher Moore and his books are so different from my usual fare. I've read several books since January 1, but this one stood out.

He continues his love story from Bloodsucking Fiends and I won't say more, but I liked it. Not his best work, but fun nonetheless. I couldn't write it, so who am I to judge? I still like some of his older stuff better: The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Coyote Blue, Island of the Sequined Love Nun and one of my faves Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

On a completely different note, I also finished reading, A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland Indiana, which was cute in that she's the same age as I am and a lot of those memories, I could relate to. I just picked up today, She Got Up Off the Couch: And Other Heroic Acts from Mooreland, Indiana. This picks up where the end of Zippy left off.

As you guessed, not much crocheting going on-halfway through the shawl, but since it starts in the center back, half way through the rounds, but in reality eally only about 1/3 of the way through. Nothing else, nothing. No craftiness lately, but I'll get the groove back, just taking a little time right now. Reading, working, whining about the cold, that's it.

I would try and read Blood Sucking Fiends first and then You Suck, but you don't have to-you suck is just an extension of the BSF and a story on it's own.

I haven't read You Suck yet but I can't wait to. Bloodsucking Fiends was awesome and I also have The Stupidest Christmas and Dirty Jobs in my To Read pile.

I loved the Zippy book. I have friends that lived in Indiana and swear it was as weird as she wrote.
