Spent much of the week feeling pretty poorly, so I didn’t quite get as much reading done as I wanted. My challenge participation fell off too. On the other hand, I finished two books, read two novellas, and got well into Death from a Top Hat.
LIST / GOAL
Finished last 35%
Finished last 80%
- Finish The Turk.
- Finish Christmas Tales of Terror.
- Make some progress on In the Company of Thieves or Death from a Top Hat (library book).
- Will probably read something not at all on this list!
Not going to declare any page count goal. Just getting through a couple extra chapters of something would be good.

Playing ultimate frisbee last night didn’t treat me well. I spent the morning on the couch reading and napping. A terrible, terrible thing. Still behind on, well, everything, but at least I’m less stressed out.
