Spring Reading Thing Wrap-Up

Did you finish reading all the books on your spring reading list? If not, why not? I did not finish all the books on my initial list, but I did pretty well regardless. I kept up with the Clash of Kings read-along as well as my weekly short story and weekly poem goals. I did … Continue reading Spring Reading Thing Wrap-Up

Books #11 & #12

I ended up perusing the Greater Phoenix Digital Library on Wednesday and checked out a few books. (What, I was supposed to keep to a list?) Since the data drive on this computer is horked up and, therefore, Adobe Digital Editions is more arduous than normal, I read these books on Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader … Continue reading Books #11 & #12

Book #10* & Bout of Books Update

Bout of Book Update & Observations I'm pretty happy with how Bout of Books is going, reading-wise. I've read three novellas and a anthology of short stories, about 380 pages altogether. For a slow reader like me, I'm happy with that.  But, I should be writing more. I'm probably going to go "off list" and … Continue reading Book #10* & Bout of Books Update

Four novellas, five novelettes, seven short stories. I am totally counting this for the SpecFic Challenge. Lists and links … Continue reading 2011 Nebula Award Nominees

Bout of Books Read-a-thon

As slow as I am, the only way I managed to keep up with an English major's reading load by churning through it without thought. A read-a-thon facilitates the need to relentless move … Continue reading Bout of Books Read-a-thon

#Readathon Wrap-Up and Book No. 8

Read-a-thon Wrap-Up The Spring 2012 Read-a-thon was pretty much a bust for me. Hungover on 3 hours of sleep is not the best way to go into 24 hours of reading. Plus, a friend of ours has been a little worse for wear and, well, I'm the healer of our EQ2 group. I ended up … Continue reading #Readathon Wrap-Up and Book No. 8

Read-a-thon Update Post

Initial Notes: Betsy's post-dissertation shindig was last night. I drank too many beers. And went to bed at 2am... Still feeling the beers. Anyway, this is the post I'll be updating all day. Introductory Questionnaire 1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Tempe, AZ 2) Which book in your stack … Continue reading Read-a-thon Update Post
