Sunday Salon...round 4
Honestly, I have no idea why I'm even posting today. I had a lousy, no make that LOUSY week of reading last week. If it hadn't been for my "vacation," I wouldn't have had much of anything to report in my monthly wrap-up yesterday. Even so, it wasn't exactly a spectacular month. And it was definitely an odd month of reading for me. I didn't notice until I'd published it that the only fiction books I'd read all month were graphic novels. It's not that I'm saying there's anything wrong with that, but it definitely isn't my norm. Nor is it my norm for the non-fiction to outnumber the fiction.
I feel a little let-down that Carl's Sci-Fi Experience is already over. I didn't get a single book read for it. :( I did read a pile of awesome sci-fi shorts though, and am very happy about that. And I am halfway through The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge. I've decided that I should read a Stainless Steel Rat book each year for the Sci-Fi Experience...it just seems fitting, doesn't it? And they really are just plain fun.
The 1% Well-Read Challenge ended yesterday as well. And yes, I totally blew that one (only read 2/10 books). I know you're not surprised. Nor was I. But yes, I am a glutton for punishment. Yes, (another) 1% Well-Read Challenge begins today.
As for the coming week, at the rate I'm going I'll be happy to finish up the Stainless Steel Rat book and House of Stone (which I didn't have a chance to read a single page in last week). Just seems like there's so much else going on...
