Spring reading

So I really slacked this winter. Didn't read too much at all. But I'm determined to get back on track.
So this season, I plan on burning through the following:



Squirrels Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris
I'm a huge fan of Sedaris. I think his works are the only books I've read that make me guffaw out loud in public. This title may look like its geared towards children, but trust me...it's not.

The Walking Dead Volume Three
I'm a bit behind in this set. I did watch the AMC series - It was only six episodes, so I doubt it will ruin too much for me. Now I just have to keep on truckin' so I can get more volumes under my belt before the Season 2.

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Though this has been one of my favorite stories since childhood and I've seen many different versions on film (including the creepy European one with marionettes *shiver*), I have never actually read the story. So I picked up a cheap copy and I'm finally going read it cover to cover.

  1. I've been wanting to read that new David Sedaris book for a while now (so many other books to finish before buying another though!) Have you ever listened to his books on CD? He narrates them. They make my commute so much more enjoyable! :)

  2. I do have one of his CDs and heard a few of his stories on NPR. Saw a one-man show in Hollywood this Christmas based on Holidays on Ice - it was fantastic! The actor even sounded like him.

  3. I have to second how funny David Sedaris is, I went to a book reading he did once and I laughed so hard I started crying. The Walking Dead is equally amazing, it started me down the slippery slope of turning into a comic junkie.
