Book time

So, as i might of said before i listen to books at work as well as read them.  In the last week and half i have listened to two books and read one.  The first book i listened tow was this one by Terry Prachett, called Going Postal.  As anyone who has read any book from Terry they know it is full of weird humor.  This one is no different.  It was fun to read and if you like fun books you should read this one.  It is about a criminal that was giving a second chance at life by running the post office that has not delivered a letter in over 40 years but has still collected mail.  There are piles of mail everywhere and he has to try and figure out what to do.

The second book that I listen to was called Elements of Style by Wendy Wasserstein.  It is about a group of upper crust people in New York a little while after 9/11.  It is an interesting look at the in and outs of the upper crust and how petty they can be.  It also makes me glad that i am not part of the group of people.  I do not think i can deal with all the pressure to be perfect.

 The Book i read this month was the Accidental Vampire by Lynsay Sands. I believe that this is her seventh book but i could be wrong.  She has given the look at vampires an interesting twist.  Instead of being cured people who die when they are turned, they are people from Atlantes that came up with nanoites that made them into vampires.  Each of her books follow a vamp that thinks they have found their lifemates and what they do to get them.  They are fun romance vampire books and this one is just as fun as her others.
