Books, books, books

I really hate to admit it, but I am curious about Anne Rice's 'Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana', the sequel to 'Christ the Lord' that's being published soon. By all rights, I shouldn't be. I read the first book for an essay on Jesus in literature and found it a dull, plodding read. But I am one of these unfortunate readers who, once I read the first book in a series, just has to read the rest of the books to find out what happens. No matter how crap the first book might be.
Alright, so I know how the story ends here (*SPOILER ALERT!* He dies on the cross and rises from the dead three days later omg!), but I'm still morbidly curious about what Rice does with the next part of the story, no matter how crazy she is (and if anyone's heard about the wanking about Martin Luther on the IMDb boards you'll know that Anne Rice is a crazy person and if not that, a shit-stirrer at the very least). I know I won't buy the book, though. I'll borrow from a library, because the last one definitely wasn't worth my money.

I spent the weekend getting over the worst of the cold. I probably could've gone to uni today, but I didn't and worked from home instead. I do believe I've borrowed as many books as I could find on gospel trial narratives, and have found a wealth of articles on JSTOR on the topic. Next week I'm looking at the possiblility of a trip out to Banyo to the Australian Catholic University to find out if there's anything interesting in their library. I could search their online catalogue to find books for possible interlibrary loans, but I find that actually looking through the shelves yields more results for me. I like to look through the books too, rather than just borrow them on the basis of their title and/or author.

But enough about that. I'm off to bed, seeing as I'm back at work tomorrow.
