Last week at this time I was ‘entertaining’ my unexpected houseguest (my sister), getting no reading done and very little else accomplished. Thankfully this weekend we are back to our normal Friday nights, and I have stacks of books calling my name (not literally, but that might make for a fun short story later).
I realized when I was writing a post for PersonaPaper that I have only finished 16 books towards my Read Your Library challenge (books at my branch library on the first column of shelves in adult and YA fiction, and in the 001-100 shelves of nonfiction). The other books I read from the library certainly will count, but I’d love to finish off reading a whole shelf this month. So, in order to do that I need to read a bunch of library books so I can return them and get the rest of the books off the first shelf of the A’s in adult fiction. I only need to read ~10 books to be done reading that first shelf now, so long as the library doesn’t suddenly acquire a bunch of books at the beginning of the alphabet this month. Tonight I am reading
– More Than This, by Patrick Ness
– Unnatural Creatures, by Neil Gaiman
– Say You’re One of Them, by Uwem Akpan (this one is in that first column of the fiction section, btw)
Today I finished Joyland, by Stephen King, which was pretty good, certainly better than Mr. Mercedes and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
What are you reading?
