It’s Monday, What Are You… (1/29)


In order to avoid ending up in a reading slump again, I’m going to be a little freer with my DNFing. Toward the middle of last week, I realized that I was avoiding reading because two of my in-progress books, World, Chase Me Down and The Steam Man of the Prairie and the Dark Rider Get Down just weren’t doing it for me. So, on to the next books!

The Turk: The Life and Times of the Famous 19th Century Chess-Playing Machine Dear Mr. Holmes: Seven Holmes on the Range Mysteries  Frankenstein Dreams: A Connoisseur's Collection of Victorian Science Fiction

Recovering from New Year Fest. Actually, health-wise, it wasn’t too bad. Yes, after playing four games on Saturday, I was pretty beat. We were short-handed and had a couple pickup players, but I don’t think we ever had more than 13 players. We lost all our games, but still had fun. I was fatigued on Sunday and didn’t even go out to watch the rest of the games, but other than my hips aching a little and good bruise on my ankle where I was stepped on during the last game, I was feeling pretty good. So, hopefully back to my regularly scheduled life.

Inadvisably, I decided to delve back into online classes. I’ve joined CS50: Introduction to Computer Science  and MUS24.1x: First Nights: Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo and the Birth of Opera through HarvardX via edX. Plus, I’m still playing around with watercolors.

      It’s an anthology of Victorian science fiction. I love how so many of the “serious” writers of that time had a genuine interest in the natural sciences. Of course they occasionally ended up writing science fiction!

    I agree with your DNF rules! I try so hard to read a book but if I dread picking it up or just can’t get into it, I have been better about stopping too! Good luck with your classes!
