What Kind of Blogger?

I started a new quilt project yesterday (yay me!) but I can't show in-progress pics this time because it's a secret surprise for a friend. I know said friend sometimes reads RSR, and the design of the quilt is such that it would be a dead give-away who it's for if she saw it, so you'll all just have to trust me that I'm doing some studio work and wait for the end result to see a photo. HA! Meanwhile, back in Blogland... I appreciate the feedback from Michelle and Gabrielle about "One Hundred Years of Solitude" but I still have my doubts that it's my kind of book. It's described as "magic realism". The last book I read that was classified that way was "Like Water For Chocolate". That book was also widely acclaimed and had tons of positive reviews, both from critics and from friends of mine, but I hated it. Really. I had to force myself to finish it and in the end I found it arty-in-a-bad-way and pretentious, and felt like I had wasted my time. I know that's probably hopelessly shallow of me, but so be it. I REALLY suspect from the descriptions and reviews I've read that I'd have exactly the same reaction to "One Hundred Years of Solitude". But who knows? I've been wrong before! So maybe I'll check it out of the library one of these days and give it a try. I DO appreciate the comments about it. Before reading them I wouldn't have even put it on my "maybe" list of books to read. I took a quiz this morning called "What Kind of Blogger Are You?" and I think they nailed this one.
You Are a Life Blogger!
Your blog is the story of your life - a living diary. If it happens, you blog it. And make it as entertaining as possible.
