Hitler's Childhood

Forgive me for my total slack-job here on my blog. I've been pretty busy.

I am still completely enthralled with my LibraryThing. I can't wait to move my bookshelves into the livingroom and start alphabetizing my books into something that might resemble an actual library.

Can I tell you all how silly I actually am about this whole book thing? There's a store in Hamburg called "Crazy4Bookz". It's a gently used book store and she has the little space packed to the brim with all sorts of books. I was in there the other day (like I totally NEED more books, right?) and I asked her about the V.C. Andrews' series.

I have always been a fan of "Flowers in the Attic" but I haven't read the other books in that series...well she had them - and I bought them - all seven books. Then I get home and I realized that I already had two of them. See...this whole cataloging thing will definitely save me money.

I can't wait to go out and buy Norman Mailer's newest book "The Castle in the Forest". I love Mailer and this book will prove to be Pulitzer-worthy. It is the story of Adolf Hitler's childhood as seen through the eyes of Deiter, a demon sent to put him on his destructive path. Talk about fun! I might have to read it tonight...all 600 pages.

OK, enough chit-chat. I've got some Swiffering to do and then off to Borders.

Stay warm, kids. I promise to be a better blogger in the near future.

I love the "Flowers in the Attic" series too. It was my favorite thing to read when I was in high school. Worth reading again.
