Anyways for it being SUNday, and basically this is a book blog, I will post something from one of my two current reads.
Sun of God
"I've begun worshipping the sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun. It's there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money. I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to "God" are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate."
-Brain Droppings by George Carlin, Pg. 20
On another topic I bought a book last Friday at *gasp* Borders *ends gasp*. I actually bought two, bur one was for me mom's, Breaking Dawn in spanish, she is in love with the series... Let her be.
But I got for me self "The Sweet Far Thing" by Libba Bray!!!!!!!!!! I am sooo excited, and already have read 200 pages- the book has 800+ pages.
It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy. Her mother murdered, her father alaudanum addict, Gemma has relied on an unsuspected strength and has discovered an ability to travel to an enchanted world called the realms, where dark magic runs wild. Despite certain peril, Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances. Now, as Gemma approaches her London debut, the time has come to test these bonds.
The Order—the mysterious group her mother was once part of—is grappling for control of the realms, as is the Rakshana. Spence's burned East Wing is being rebuilt, but why now? Gemma and her friends see Pippa, but she is not the same. And their friendship faces its gravest trial as Gemma must decide once and for all what role she is meant for.
So naturally I'm eating the pages away like if they were chocolate. It's the only SANE thing to do. I actually went to the beach today... and read. I didn't even touch the water, I don't think I even gave it a seconds thought. I know, I need help, but I don't want any help! Let me be a Bookaholic in peace ;]
PS; I do not want for anyone to basically feel uncomfortable because of my lack of religious beliefs. I do not care if you are Buddhist, Christian, or anything else. And this is a bookblog, not a religious blog, so I see no mind in getting uncomfortable for the quote from the book, or my personal statement.
