Blogging around

I know we've been (and by we, I of course mean ii) slacking off over here and producing very little anything interesting for ya'll to read. But, I'm happy to point out that's not the case with the rest of the book blogging world.

I can not get over how brilliant the new meme hosted by Alayne at The Crowded Leaf is! In "What Were They Thinking?" you're supposed to post a book that makes you ask the infamous, “What Were They Thinking?” and explain WHY you are so turned off by the book. It's hilarious! I'd join in right away if I wasn't such a slacker and always forgetting this meme takes place on Thursdays (make a note everyone!). Today's WWTT is all about Romeo and Juliet. And vampires. Indeed, what were they thinking?? I'm not even going to point out the obvious horridness of this piece, but as Alayne was saying, I'll just say the whole vampire thing is getting really old already.

For the Finnish speaking crowd out there, a few active bloggers have set up a virtual book club for your enjoyment. They are selecting one book each month and this book will be then discussed on the 10th of each month in the book club blog. The first book of the month is Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook. We're already swamped with our list (and occasionaly we do have other life outside the list too..) so we might not be joining in on every read but will definitely jump in if they are picking something off of our list or something we just have to add to our reading schedule.

So, loads of fun things happening out there, go and join in ya'll!!
