It’s Monday, What Are You… (1/15)


Bout of Books

Bout of Books wrapped up yesterday. I read around 350 pages, but I feel like I read a lot more than that. I read The Box Jumper, a novella by Lisa Mannetti, the last 50 pages of The Sorrows of Young Werther by Goethe, seventy pages of a novel I DNFed, the first 80 pages of Countdown City, and four short stories. Happily, the slump that dominated the last half of 2017 is gone.

This week:

Countdown City (The Last Policeman, #2)  The Huge Hunter, or, the Steam Man of the Prairies
  • Countdown City by Ben H. Winter – TBR Challenge
  • The Huge Hunter, or, the Steam Man of the Prairies by Edward S. Ellis – which I suppose qualifies for the Wild West Reading Challenge
  • “How to Sync Your Spouse” by Russell Nichols – Deal Me In
  • A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
  • “The Masochist’s Assistant” by Auston Habershaw

Winter frisbee leagues got started last week with a meet-and-greet game for my division. Fitness-wise, due to sickness and rain, I’ve only played three games in two weeks, additionally Eric and I ran some intervals yesterday…which were painful. Teams haven’t been picked for my division yet. I thought about captaining, but my life currently has an okay amount of neuroticism; I decided not to rock that boat.

I’ve been slowly working my way through some Codeacademy tutorials and I plan on learning a little about watercolor painting in the near future.
