shhh...I'm not here

I'm really not supposed to be blogging. But I was worried my head might explode if I didn't take a short break from working. And lord knows how long it might take Rich to get around to cleaning up the mess, so I figured it best to try to avoid that whole scenario. Thing is, I don't really have anything to blog about. Out of practice, I guess. Decided to just throw out some of my latest book coveting. As in from the last few days. And this isn't even all of the books I've added to my list. I have another little notebook I use as well, but it's in the other room and I'm too lazy to go get it. Believe me, I've got more than enough coveting right here anyway. All but the last two are graphic novels (I swear I've become such a little addict. Thanks a lot guys...seriously, no sarcasm intended!)

Charles Darwin's on the Origin of Species: A Graphic Adaptation by Michael Keller

The Vietnam War: A Graphic History by Dwight Zimmerman

Bob Dylan Revisited by various artists

The Passion of the Hausfrau by Nicole Chaison

AD: New Orleans after the Deluge by Josh Neufeld

Locke & Key by Joe Hill

The Lords of Misrule by John Tomlinson, Dan Abhett, and Steve White

Bayou by Jeremy Love

Virgin: The Untouched History by Hanne Blank (thanks to Nymeth)

Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer (thanks to Chris)

Pathetic. I know. But hey...wanting is not the same as actually buying, right?

Besides, there's always the library! :D

It's good to see you, even if you're not supposed to be here.

Oooh, I need the Darwin book. I'm reading The Link, right now. It's fascinating.

Glad to see you back - even if it is only a quick visit. Great list of books. Hope to see you back properly soon.

Nymeth said...

There's a graphic adaptation of On The Origin of Species?! Want, want, want!

I'm so glad to see you posting, even if you're not officially back. With you on a break and Chris having laptop troubles I must might cry :(

I think I will probably end up looking up all those books on the library website in the morning. I apparently break the no library browsing rule for graphic novels...

Haha! I shouldn't be blog hopping with company here, but the parents-in-law have headed off to bed and my husband and brother-in-law are off somewhere.

It's hard to avoid the addiction once you've been bitten, I know. :-)

I covet all of the time!! Most of the time I fulfill my desires through the library but every once in a while I will break down and buy one!! Your list is pretty cool!!

Not pathetic at all! I think we all are doing a lot more coveting than we are doing purchasing nowadays! :)

I borrowed Jeff's copies of Locke and Key as they came out and really enjoyed it. Excellent comic series. Haven't read any of the sequel comics yet.

Great eclectic list of books you are coveting Debi. Nice to see you popping in to your blog, even though you are being naughty by doing so. ;)

Trish said...

What is that commandment about coveting?? :P Glad to see you around--even if it's just a quick hi. I've been taking an unofficial absence as well, but I couldn't resist popping in and saying hi.

Grad said...

Miss 'ya. Great books. Enjoy your time off.

Eva said...

My coveting list would be a lot longer than yours! :) That's why the library and I are such good friends.

Joanne at Book Zombie reviewed a graphic novel that now i really want - Clubbing. It's amazing how our reading helps others find interesting books, isn't it? which is the whole point of our blogs! And meeting great people, so it's lovely to see you sneak in for a quick line-drop to us! and I think I'm guilty of book-coveting all the time....nice to know you are too! lol

I come here every day hoping that you've sneaked back in with a rogue post. Alas! I hope you're getting all caught up and that the end of the school year is going smoothly for you and yours. Off to karate now. Yeah, I know, I'm crazy.

Okay as long as you're going to talk Bob Dylan I just have to say that I watched "I'm not There" the other day, and it is this trippy movie where six different actors play different aspects of Dylan's life. Amazing film, and I have had his songs stuck in my head ever since.
