I’m clawing my way to my 40 book goal. I should finish The Prestige this week, with intent to post some thoughts about it on Thursday/Friday. I’m reading a couple of chapters of Wuthering Heights each day for Roof Beam Reader’s Classic Book-a-Month, but honestly, I’m not sure that’s the best way to read it. I keep losing track of narrative threads. And lastly, I’ve been slowly savoring the stories in KJ Kabza’s The Ramshead Algorithm, both the ones that are new to me and the ones that are rereads.
Oh, man, it’s like two weeks until Christmas. Unfortunately, I haven’t been feeling it. It’s been warm(-ish) here in Tempe and with no real rain yet this season. I have my tree up, but haven’t done my cards or any shopping yet. And, well, not that I don’t enjoy the rounds of holiday socializing, but it’s very tiring. For a hermit like me, the world is already pretty tiring. The holiday’s are making me feel like I alternately need a double espresso and a double vodka.
