Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday

Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?


This is my first week doing the BTT! Here goes nothing: Other than reading, what do I do to pass my time? Hmm …

  1. I spend a lot (way too much, in fact) of time on the internet messing around with my blog here as well as on paperbackswap.
  2. I also belong to numerous Yahoo groups and get thousands of recipes in my email, so I love to go through those and see what new ones I can try.
  3. I also enjoy cooking. I like to experiment on my husband! Trust me, he appreciates it! Haha!
  4. Watching TV and movies. The only reality show I can stomach is American Idol. I generally prefer dramas over comedies.
  5. Spending some time with my husband. Between our work schedules time together is treasured. Unfortunately it’s not going to be getting any better, as he’s going to start a new job next week and will be commuting an hour each way until we can get moved and settled. And then I’ll be the one commuting an hour each way because I’m not leaving my job. So we really don’t see much of each other through the week, and any time we get together is very important to us.
  6. I like to organize my books. I know it sounds weird, but I like to alphabatize them every once in a while. I like to make lists; I am totally a Type A personality!
  7. I also like to play video games occasionally. I love my Wii! I also like to play Guitar Hero. I don’t play very often, though. I get sick of it really easily.
  8. And finally, I love to do word puzzles. I like to buy those big huge Puzzler’s Giant Books put out by PennyPress. Sometimes I even order backorders from them when I see a good deal!

  1. Happy Thursday! I like to organize my books too. I tend to find books hidden in there that I haven’t read yet and thus save me a trip to the library or store!

  2. I like to organise my books on LibraryThing – no hope of doing it on the shelves, there are far too many. Commuting is good for reading if you do it on public transport.

  3. Oh, I wish I had organized my books too, but then I think I prefer them to be jumbled up! I spent many hours on the Internet too, which is so not good! Will need to cut down on my Internet hours – so there’ll be more time to get some reading done.

  4. This week’s BTT question was really fun. It’s interesting to see what everyone likes doing with the rest of their free time.

    Wasting time on the internet, I thought about including that one in my post, but that would almost be like admitting a problem 😉
