Sidetracked... WOYWW 166

 First things first. Here's my "side desk" for the week. Not showing my "actual" desk since it's the same since last week.

     Main reason why I haven't done anything creative is that I went back to my first love... Reading.  Funny thing is, I said I was not going to read the book because of some reviews saying it isn't nice and stuff.
     I take reading seriously. I can read a novel in just an hour. Maybe that's the reason my eyesight went bad. So when I saw some of the reviews I was discouraged from reading it. I'm partial to the "real" book rather than the digital ebooks. I love turning the pages.  But when a friend sent my the digital copies and said I should read it, I said why not, this might answer the question whether I'm going to buy the paperback or not.

So what's the verdict?

     Well, I can't say I totally Love it, but I enjoyed reading it. There were parts that were totally unnecessary and redundant. It could have been written as 2 books instead of three. But I agree, that there are some parts that kept me entertained.

I know you're curious what the book is... heheh.. Well, it's the Fifty Shades trilogy.

As I've said I enjoyed reading it but not to the point of buying the paperback version.  There were some parts that I liked and mind you it's not "those" parts. And when my friend told me that this started out as a fanfiction, I got curious as I too wrote some fanfiction before. And the story about the author being kicked out ( sorry couldn't find the right term) of the fanfiction community of that fandom, reminded me of some one... Hahahah... Lurky and her zombies.

  So what are the parts that made me giggle?  I love the email parts... those kept me entertained.

Ok stop writing about it for now... I hope I get my creative mojo back... Now head on to Julia's site for more craft desks...

  3. I keep wondering whether I should read the books - the jury is still out! Thanks for sharing your workspace. Hope you have a good week. Hazel WOYWW #99 x

  4. Yup. The jury is still out here too on whether or not I should read those books. Thanks for sharing your desk :) Oh, and I love, love my ereader (nook) because it saves space in the house. My house was literally starting to look like a library.

  5. Well certainly your post of the desk & about the books brings a whole new meaning to having a bit on the side ! Hope you find your crafty spark again & get to play with all that stash ! Ali #51

  6. What a fascinating pile of stuff you have on your side desk.

    I love to read, too, and usually have my mp3 player clipped on and my headphones in listening to a book whilst crafting. That way I can do two of my favorite things at the same time! Lucky for me, you can download audiobooks from the library for free. :-)

    Happy Woyww!

  7. I love looking at the stuff on your desk.

    I've read the first two books - can't decide if I'll read the third one or not. I liked the emails too. I carried the book around (like a fool) and once a man smiled at me...... OMG - the book went into my backback after that!

    Yesterday was my blog anniversary - candy will be announced soon. As part of the candy I'm offering up something made by me -- so come visit and cast your vote (if you've already been - thank you. I'm trying to visit everyone this week so haven't checked in on my comments lately).

    Happy WOYWW
