Now, I fully realize that it’s a bit silly to spend the whole day reading for no better reason than other people, mostly strangers, are doing it on the internet, but it is one of those hermity things that I very much enjoy. In fact, I look forward to it like kid looks forward to Christmas. It’s an excuse to relax, quietly, and read.
Starting at 5am tomorrow and going as long as possible, I’ll be reading. And probably blogging some, most definitely writing some (since I’m behind on my writing), and probably doing some random house cleaning as I stretch my stiff back.
The TBR List
From my usual weekly reading:
- A couple of chapters of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin.
- At least a short story from Steven Millhauser’s The Barnum Museum (been looking forward to starting this anthology)
- Read a few poems from Minorities
- “Sauerkraut Station” by Ferrett Steinmetz (Giganotosaurus, November 2011),
And when I’m done with that I’ll move on to:
- The Flight of the Eisenstein by James Swallow
- The rest of the Nebula nominees.
- Heaven by Mur Lafferty
- Maybe some of The Two Sams: Ghost Stories by Glen Hershberg if I get it in the mail tomorrow.
- And Poetry magazine’s April issue.
And who knows what else! I’m pretty bad at keeping to lists and I’m a slow reader.
My fridge is stocked with highly caffeinated beverages, left-over Easter candy, and pizza bread. Plus, I have a husband that will probably gather grub for me.
It should be a good day.
