So I'm incredibly impressed by this blog it's not even funny.  I've read at least 20 pages of her blog entries, (currently on page 21)  She's married to THAT husband and has That 1st Child (who is incredibly handsome and adorable) and she's a great blogger, she has Fashionably Modest posts where she shows off her modest attire.  The photos are awesome (She is a photographer) but she's found some amazing things herself like
Apple Cores

and has a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days.
Something that I definately want to try and accomplish myself!
The best thing about That Wife is the fact that you can see who she is and she is full of JOY!  There are very few pictures without her Gorgeous Smile!
I'm so impressed that she's now in my blog reader and I can't wait to read more.
So Check her out!

This Library Technician... Doesn't Lie...

I was consulting The Whole Library Handbook 3 for unrelated reasons and found, on page 337, a section by Manley, "Excuses for overdue books".

"Why are librarians so obsessed with delinquent borrowers?
"The man reason, according to Dr. Wolfgang Lipkind, consulting behavioral psychologist for the Blackstone Institute of Library Studies, is that librarians as a group are very honest. In fact, his research shows that next to Roman Catholic nuns, librarians are the most honest professional group in America. Librarians, because they are so truthful, find it exceedingly difficult to tolerate patron lies. On the other hand, chronically delinquent borrowers are one of the most dishonest study cohorts that Lipkind has ever researched. The clash between the two groups is, therefore, almost inevitable."

YES, I Finished the Book

Okay I Can Stop Complaining about a book that took me OVER A MONTH TO READ! BRUTAL!
I just finished it, SUCCESS!
I don't really know what to make of it.  It was slow, it was interesting, and the plot twists weren't that shocking, I can't help but be a little disappointed.
I'm glad I can now donate it to the Public Library and hopefully other people will enjoy it more than I did.
WHEW!  I'm glad it's over!
I really need to read something a little bit more uplifting and has a better story line lets me feel like it was a great, fabulous, fantastic story.
For my 4 blog followers:
Please do not let this be a poor review for you.  If you have wanted to read this, Please still read it.  Maybe you'll enjoy it more than I did.
If you have any books that you really enjoyed reading please let me know so that I can have a better time enjoying my favourite pasttime of reading.

Now I don't know why but I'm SO excited to read Water For Elephants!
