It’s Monday, What Are You… 4/9


I’m reading this book and that book and that other book over there…

Due to a research tangent I ended up reading The Castle of the Carpathians by Jules Verne last week. It was…probably not Jules’ best work. And I finished The Greatcoat by Helen Dunmore. On tap this week, after my trip to the library:

The Deep The Life and Many Deaths of Harry Houdini The Fifty Year Sword
  • The Deep by Nick Cutter – I’ve been inspired by Spring into Horror… …Inspired to leave my TBR behind!
  • The Fifty Year Sword by Mark Z. Danielewski – See above. It is, of course, printed upside-down and backwards.
  • The Life and Many Deaths of Harry Houdini by Ruth Brandon – Actually planned on reading this in April and I’m way behind on reading it now due to the above.
  • And short stories!

April is off to a hot start. Highs have been in the 90s. Been reading, organizing and formatting Our Past in the Uncanny Valley, playing some ultimate frisbee. All the usual stuff. And along those lines, I’m trying to decide on a plan for the upcoming 24-hour readathon. League finals are that day, but maybe I’ll do an unofficial 24-in-48 readathon that weekend (since I missed *that* for New Year Fest). I have two hobbies which shouldn’t overlap…

What Was I Doing?


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. I’ve always wanted to read something by Danielewski, but his books always seem to be a little more work than I’m ready for. One of these days, though….

    Happy reading this week, and thanks for the blog visit!
