A Reading Vocation

"I Must Read, Read, and Read. It is my Vocation." - Thomas Merton

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


New Book(s) Arrival: The Amazon.com Gift Certificate

The X-Files: Season 10, Volume 1 - Joe Harris, Michael Walsh, Chris Carter Frozen: Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack (Piano/Vocal/Guitar) - Hal Leonard Corp.

One of my clients gives points toward gift cards as incentives to take on work during especially busy times, and I recently redeemed one for a few new books from Amazon. 


The X-Files Season 10, volume 1: This comic book was imperative to filling that X-Files-shaped-hole in my and my husband's hearts; a few weeks ago we finished watching the series on Netflix and finished with the 2008 movie. We haven't started reading this yet, but I wonder if we will cuddle up together to do so at 10 pm as was our ritual with the episodes. I hope so. :)


Frozen: Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack: I got this after being frustrated trying to learn to play "Let it Go" using online notations, because sitting in front of a computer while playing guitar isn't very fun. However, the songs look so hard to play on guitar that I almost sent it right back immediately upon its receipt. Then I thought I should at least TRY. But then I found out there's an easy version, and I'm wondering if I should go back to my initial plan to send it back. I can try the easy version instead! Unfortunately, there's no "look inside" feature or reviews, so it's hard to know whether the easy version is any good. :/ Still on the fence about what will become of this long-awaited addition to my music collection.
