Weekly Journal May 9-15 2011

You sleep more if you don’t drink coffee, how about that? Well it is not a great surprise but an hour more sleep per night was a surprise? That is infringing on my reading time! Maybe I should start drinking coffee again? Na, I feel better for not.

There are books and authors you just have to enjoy reading like John Ringo. The Hot Gate was such an enjoyable book with great characters and space action. Not overly complex but who cares! That was my best read this week.

There has like last year been a few renewals the week before the upfronts. Chuck has been renewed for a fifth and final season. That renewal made me especially happy. Harry’s Law and Body of Proof also made me happy. New genre shows announced are Alcatraz (Fox), Grimm (NBC), Awake (NBC), Once Upon A Time (ABC) and the maybe genre show the River (ABC).

That was all for this week, keep making suggestions for books to read.
