Comment: Please Stand By... And Holiday Reading Anticipation

It's been an entire week since my last confession... er, post; my apologies. I'm having major computer trouble (i.e., I got a new one but it won't turn on - ??$#%@??), so I'm sans computer at home, and too busy to blog at work. But keep your eye on this space -- I'll be back as soon as I can with links, stories, and reviews.

In the meantime, here's my question of the week: what are you looking forward to reading over your holiday vacation (if you're getting any)?

I've got my eye on the Neil Gaiman collection FRAGILE THINGS -- I find good fantasy extremely appropriate for Christmas reading. (Of course, I am a big nerd about Christmas, among other things, and believe in the magic and mystery of it all wholeheartedly. You may find other genres express your sentiments...)

I've also just dipped into THE WIZARD OF THE CROW, one of the nominees for the Litblog Co-Op spring selections, and have found in surprisingly engrossing for such Serious Literature. It's a hefty one, though, and I'm looking forward to a long plane ride to see family on the West Coast in order to really dig in.

What about you?

"The People of Paper" - wanted to save it for after "The Children's Hospital", but the latter has yet to arrive in the mail, and I can't sit on my hands. There's books to be read.

I plan on devouring as much of Sacred Games as I can-it's a great big thumping read,as they say. Also hope to finish up with The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,which is very readable but with one thing and another,I've been neglecting it shamefully.
