I'm not properly doing a reading meme tonight, but I've been getting more books read this month than I have in ages
, which is awesome. (I've just started my eighth or ninth novel of the month, depending on whether one factors in the new Newsflesh
Really, I probably shouldn't have started the new book until I read the next chunk of Feed
so I can comment on it tomorrow at aftertheendtimes
, but we're coming up to one of the parts of the series that upsets me most*, so I think maybe I subconsciously put it off. >.> So I'll have to read and write about it tomorrow. Because it's so
much better that way.
*I have a list. Some days I think it's a little weird that my favorite series shatters my heart in so many places/ways. Other days I feel like it's more that that's a key element.
Anyway, in a freak development, the current book (The Girl With All the Gifts
) is a book I own
, rather than a library book. I got to actually go stand in front of the physical to-read bookcase in the living room and choose something!
In highly relevant news, I've crossed the 300-book mark on my list of library holds. O_O (305, to be precise, not counting the three that are waiting to be picked up tomorrow--although all three of those are graphic novels.)
And speaking of counting things...I've now been hanging out at over 300 open tabs for long enough that it apparently feels normal (although I don't like it). I've been putting a fair bit of time into whittling away at them in the last few days, alongside my work, and have gotten down to...um...315 open tabs. *facepalm* Although I've also managed to do a fair bit of sorting, so my main group is down to only about two and a half rows of tabs (last week it was usually more like eight or nine rows).
On the work front, I think
I have five rewrites due by September 1. And three lettered volumes to proofread within the next week. O_o (Some deadline adjustment may happen there. That'd be nice.) Combine that with the fact that I'll be in Ontario for two and a half weeks next month, and things start to feel a little tight. But I'm still hoping to get at least somewhat ahead before I fly out. That's just over a week away, and things will be fairly quiet on the home front between now and then. We'll see.
