Confused about where I am?
Unfortunately because of WordPress.com having problems with commenting and little to no sign of the problems being corrected, and unrelated to my last move from unfinishedperson.com to unfinishedperson2.com, I am moving temporarily to http://unfinishedperson.tumblr.com/. The main reason I am doing this is because I’m participating in a 30-day photo challenge with several other bloggers and need a place where people can comment. Plus the format of Tumblr blogs fits well with photo posts.
I plan on moving to my own self-hosted blog, hopefully with the domain name: unfinishedperson.com, in May or June, where the archives of all my blogs will be able to be found. I will keep you updated here and on unfinishedperson.tumblr.com as to the exact timetable.

What I picked up on Friday evening at From My Shelf Books in my hometown as they had a sale before they move to their new location. Even though I already had 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami on e-book that I also purchased from the store, I couldn’t pass up this print edition — at half price! I have a friend to which I’m going send this.
Today in between watching some NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship games, I’m planning to read Sylvia Plath’s The Colossus & Other Poems, her first book of poetry, which I forgot that I had borrowed from the Free Library of Philadelphia on e-book. Earlier this week, I’ve been reading My Thoughts Be Bloody: The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth That Led to an American Tragedy by Nora Titone. However, I haven’t gotten as far as I would like, because it’s been busy this past week at the library where I work, and I plan on reading more this week.
As I mentioned last week on my old blog, I’m still thinking I might continue Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe series or Lawrence Block’s Burglar/Bernie Rhodebarr series or maybe even start Block’s Matthew Scudder series here soon, to go along with the Titone book. I think the latter might be an ongoing project for this month, not because it’s boring, but because it is a longer book than I’m used to reading, at almost 500 pages even on e-book, and I’ve never been one to rush nonfiction. I am enjoying learning about the Booth brothers and their father, Junius Booth, and how the rivalry between the brothers influenced John Wilkes to assassinate our 16th President.
Sometime this week, I do want to listen to part of Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Short Stories by Ian Fleming as narrated by Simon Vance. On Saturday night, I will be taking part in a conversation with a group of bloggers about the audiobook on Twitter as part of the Shaken, Not Stirred challenge . Then we will be watching For Your Eyes Only, which along with the movie Quantum of Solace was based on the first five of nine short stories in the book (that last piece of knowledge, thanks to Tanya of the blog dog eared copy). I already have the movie from Netflix, so now I just have to make the time to listen to the book. Luckily, this week I have a little more time on Monday and Wednesday that I plan to take advantage of.
What are you reading today and what’s on your radar for the rest of this week/this month? Do you follow “March Madness”? Who is your team? I’m just glad Duke is done, but otherwise I’m not pulling for anyone other than the underdogs.
