I’m it!

Tara from Books and Cooks tagged me for a fun meme (and my first one at that).

Here are the rules: I am going to list three categories of books. 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as they go around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.So, here goes…[asterisks are next to my additions]

3 MUST Read Books:

Resistance, by Alice Humbert

*Mister Pip, by Lloyd Jones (read my review here)

Black Swan Green, by David Mitchell

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:

The Week Ahead

A bit late posting my week but better late than never! Here’s what I have going this week:

Monday, September 8, 2008 – Had a meeting with an employee relations rep over an irate employee. That was fun (not). Working on getting the kids’ picture order filled out as tomorrow is picture day!

Tuesday, September 9, 2008 – Co-workers are taking me out for a belated bay lunch. I try to stretch my birthday into a month long celebration. I mean, why not? Tonight I plan to finish Greasy Rider which will be reviewed here.

Wednesday, September 10, 2008 – Yet another birthday lunch. This one is with a women’s group I belong to at work. I got tagged for a meme so I hope to post that today. Tonight I plan to read quite a bit of Run. I have a number of books that I am obligated to review so I am trying to read those along with other books that I have committed to reading.

Thursday, September 11, 2008 – Okay, Okay.. another birthday lunch but heck a girl has to eat. I also get my performance review today. I detest performance reviews, even though mine are always really good. I even read this one beforehand but the whole experience reminds me of going to the principals office as a kid. Boo… hiss.

Friday, September 12, 2008 – Dinner with a friend tonight and I think we are going to see The Women. Either that or Sisterhood 2. I would be happy with either one as I never get to see a first run movie.

The Weekend – My book group is meeting for tea, scones and other nibbly bits. The idea is to see if the group is still working for all of us as it has been quite some time since we implemented any changes. I am personally quite happy with the group. I look forward to it each month. Sunday is a free day for me. Yay! Nothing going on and I hope to keep it that way.

What’s on your plate this week?
