Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] tree_and_leaf, because I have nothing better to do with myself while the Tater Tot naps than do memes. (Ha! But he slept for all of 30 minutes and then took 45 minutes to get back to sleep--I might not have bothered had he not been up at 6 AM and refused a morning nap, and I'm too brain-dead to do much of anything besides memes.)

The book I am reading: The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. I have rather mixed feelings about it. The story is interesting, but the writing quality fluctuates, and so far the characters aren't gripping me quite like the ones in the Tudor books. I started reading Cordelia's Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold before that, but got a bit bogged down in all the space politics and decided to take a break from sci-fi for a while because I recently finished reading all the Orson Scott Card books.

The book I am writing: Need to do some more work on my romantic comedy, Songs for Piano and Voice, but I don't have a lot of time these days (see above: Tater Tots, Napping Poorly). I'm going to try and write some short stories for a contest I discovered in a magazine yesterday, though.

The book I love most: Probably Anne of Green Gables.

The last book I received as a gift: My brother gave me Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson for Christmas, and I read about a chapter and couldn't get into it because the narrator is talking about her grandfather and not giving me a good idea about who she is. I'll probably pick it up again some other time.
