If I could just stop sneezing long enough to write this... My fall allergies have been so horrible this year! Last year was the first time I've ever had fall allergies, and it was awful, but this year seems even worse. They are taking all the fun out of autumn!
P.S. I turned on the TV last night and guess what I saw? Bela Lugosi in his famous role.
Next Book: Conan by Robert Howard. Fantasty, like horror, is not my favorite genre, but I'm willing to take a chance on a classic. Anyway, the Frank Frazetta illustration on the cover piqued my interest. I'll let you know how it is.

Next up for book club is The Help, which I've already read, so I've decided to do something different, starting now. I'm going to read every book of my husband's. Not all in one month, of course. He has a lot! No, I'm going to start now and read them all in however much time it takes, even the science textbooks. I might save "Mein Kampf" for last, though, in hopes that I'll never get through them all in my lifetime! C has a wide and varied taste in books, everything from politics to sea-stories to poetry to classic literature to Mad magazine compilations. Where to begin? I thought I'd start with Dracula, this being October and all. I've never read it before! Best of all, C's copy is annotated, so it's full of illustrations and tangents, which I love. I'll review it here when I'm done.
