If you’re participating and we’re not friends, please add me!! My name is chrisa511. I HATE the look of the new Google Reader. And I LOVE the new Florence and the Machine album. That is all.

  1. Someone actually beat Ana?! It’s a miracle!:-) I can’t believe you got Habibi through PBS! How cool is that?! Enjoy your books and good luck on NaNoWriMo.

    Yes, GR is freaking ugly and lonely-looking.

  2. 1. Woohoo! Congrats Debi! πŸ˜€
    2. I’m soooo glad you got Notes on a Scandal!
    3. I hate the new GR too. 😦
    4. Yay for NaNoWriMo!!

  3. I’m perfectly happy with my two points…I love being a bad influence. πŸ˜‰

    Also, if you have the receipt for Out of Oz, return it! I got an unsolicited copy that I’ll never read that I’d be more than happy to send your way.

  4. Volume 4 of the Unwritten is out?? YAY! *rushes off to buy a copy*

    I hate the new Google Reader, too. They changed the documents and things, too. I hated that, too.

    Have fun with your writing!

  5. Ican see you will be living with your mother forever! because that’s how long it would take to move all of your books! lol lol… you are incredible Chris!

    I didn’t know you were doing Nano.. I hope you are enjoying it!

  6. Whoa…hold on there! I do not think it is fair at all that you’re giving me a point for The Museum of Dr. Moses! I didn’t make you *want* that book, I just shoved it down your throat.

    When Rich sees how many John Sandfords are on that list, I guarantee you will have made him a happy man. πŸ˜€

    And god, I must be tired. I haven’t checked email yet! I may have a third installment waiting for me…I hope, I hope, I hope… Seriously loving your novel. So much.

  7. Jeannette Winterson was on TV this morning talking about her new autobiography. I forget the title but it sounded brilliant.

    I’ve just finished The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag and it was absolutely wonderful. Enjoy your books, Chris.

  8. I’ll have to see if I can’t up my score from 1 to more. On the other hand, I’m in a tie with Neil Gaiman so I’m not too ashamed. πŸ˜‰

    Looks like wonderful books, as usual, Chris. I’m torn between The Marriage Plot and leaving Euginedes alone. Didn’t love Middlesex at all. Right now I’m in the midst of 1Q84, which will probably keep me occupied for awhile, and I can see you have lots to keep yourself occupied. Happy reading!

  9. Any month I can convinced someone to get CARNIVAL is a good month!

    I’m also unhappy with the new Google Reader. The header is way too big for my netbook. It only leaves me a teeny tiny reading area. That ain’t nearly enough. BLAH.

  10. Yay! Congrats to Debi and her good (bad) influence! Ana is going to have to try harder over the next 6 months to regain the throne!

  11. Good luck with Nanwrimo! I also hate the new GR and love the new Florence and the Machine. πŸ™‚
