Sunday Sendup 8

Notice
I'm taking the week off from blogging since a) I don't believe I have any obligations for this week and b) I want to read without getting too strung up with the blog, sometimes I'm so busy trying to remember to write posts and reviews that I can't read as happily as I wish.  With so many books I've been desperately waiting for on my shelf right now, I want to read them until my eyes bleed :D
