  3. I'm curious your thoughts on Divegent, since I read that not long ago and just finished the 2nd book recently.

    1. I liked it. The movie adaptation was very faithful to the book, I thought.

      Are you planning to pick up the third book?

  4. Oh, Persepolis!! Hope you loved it! I've read The Book of Strange New Things--pretty interesting book. Not quite what I expected, but kind of mesmerizing!

    1. Persepolis was definitely eye-opening. I have to confess that I had this perception of comics being sort of fluffy, but I'm decidedly being dissuaded of that idea!

      I'm glad to hear you found it interesting. It seems like a really original idea!

  5. My book club is reading Persepolis now (I read it a couple of years ago so didn't reread) and then we're going to hear Marjane Satrapi speak at a nearby university next week. Can't wait!

    1. That's great! I hope you will write on the blog about hearing her speak!

  6. LOL! I know the feeling. It always takes me a day or two (or three!) to feel like myself again.

  8. I'm much tired and much cranky is the post-readathon fog. And I have cold. Dangit.

  9. I slept half of today as yesterday I was still all disjointed. Feel much better. I loved Horrorstor it was perfect for Readathon and October.

    1. I bet! Readathon is so much fun but it takes a while to recover!

  10. Feeling very much the same after Readathon, too! I'm hoping to squeeze The Book of Strange New Things in before the end of the month, but I think it still might be a bit - looking forward to it!
