And tired and ready for a week long vacation to recover from all the running around we did. I’ll be posting about my wedding/honeymoon on my personal blog over the next few days, so if you’re interested, feel free to stop by.
As for this blog, can you believe I only read one book my entire vacation? While at the Grand Canyon, my husband (tee hee) and I discovered Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon by Michael P. Ghiglieri and Thomas M. Meyers. The book details every death ever recorded at Grand Canyon, from accidental falls over the edge to murders as far back as 1000 A.D. It was very interesting, but I’ve begun referring to it as the book of “No Common Sense”. Bascially, it’s a warning to all of us who may visit the Canyon to not leave our common sense at the gate. With the exception of a couple freak accidents (people getting hit by lightening or having rocks fall on them) pretty much every death listed was due to someone not using plain ol common sense.
Although it seems somewhat morbid, the book was actually very interesting and I’d recommend it.
It was kind of depressing, however, and now I need something to cheer me up. Since I haven’t been around for two weeks, I have no idea what y’all have been reading and recommending. Did something wonderful come out in the last couple weeks that I have to read? Something you just read for the first time that I may have missed along the way? I’m really anxious to read a good romance, so give me a rec, will you?
Oh, and just so you know, I currently have 598 unread blogs in my Google Reader. So chances are, if you blogged about a book, I didn’t see it. Feel free to tell me what the book is and leave me the link for it.
I tell you, it’s good to be home!
Update @ e10:46 p.m.: Only 276 blogs left to go through in my Google Reader. Some of you are only getting skimmed, however. Sorry, but as much as I love you, there’s only so much time in a day…
