What I'm Reading + Other Updates

I am rather ashamed to admit I'm not doing as much reading as I want to right now. With a brand new apartment and a ton of boxes still unpacked, it's been hard to justify sitting down and reading for long periods of time these past few months. I did read one whole book while I was in Jamaica, but the second book I started got lost when we came home. I recently found it again -- after I jumped into other books, of course. All the books I'm currently reading are sitting in a stack beside my bed, or in the top drawer of my nightstand.

Here's the current list:

  • NIV Thinline Bible
  • The Purpose-Driven Life
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  • The Best American Short Stories of the Century (1900-1999)
I'm working, slowly, through all of these. Hopefully next week, I'll have finished The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and be able to write a review. I finished The Life of Pi about a month ago, and I'm still not done synthesizing the novel. It really opens up a huge can of worms on the ideas of faith, religion, spirituality, and the idea of humans doing what it takes to survive. Expect a review of this one in a few weeks.


I've got some exciting new ideas for the blog that I can't wait to put in place. Monday's project update is going to be about the Ali Edwards December Daily album. It's my first real attempt at a December Daily, and I decided to go digital for this project, too. Yikes. I've never done a completely digital project before. I'm going to do it using the collage templates from and some holiday digital papers from Two Peas in It should, actually, be fairly low-stress because I can probably skip using Photoshop Elements, but at the same time, if I decide I want to add more to the collages, I can easily upload them to PSE later to edit. Anyway, I'll have more details and links to what I'll be using in Monday's post.
