So, did I read anything in between mocking the children's couch potato competition?
- Trick of the Light, Rob Thurman
- Penderwicks at Point Mouette. Jane Birdsall
- Margaret Sanger: Pioneer of the Future, Emily Taft Douglas
- In the Teeth of the Evidence (reread), Dorothy Sayers
- Fray, Joss Whedan & artists
What trends do I see? I read nonfiction really really slowly. The biography of Margaret Sanger was amusing but I still crept along at barely fifty pages a day, even when I restricted my other reading. I really liked the Penderwick books and I'm delighted to hear that more are scheduled.
Right now I'm reading:
- Feng Shui, Robin D Laws. On loan from my brother.
- The Battle for Azeroth, ed. Bill Fawcett. Analysis of the World of Warcraft MMORPG.
- Little Fuzzy, H. Piper. In preparation for Scalzi's relaunch, I got this for my NOOK.
- Omnitopia , Diane Duane (audio).
- Territory, Emma Bull (vacation book)
- Downbelow Station, C.J. Cherryh. Reread.
- Bad Prince Charlie, John Moore (vacation book)
- The Rogue's Return, Jo Beverly (vacation book)
- The Secret Duke, Jo Beverly. Found under my bedside table with a bookmark.
- How I Met My Countess, Elizabeth Boyle. Also found.
- The Terrorists of Irustan, Louise Marley. I snuck this into my vacation pile.
The first book is borrowed from my brother, so I only read that in one place at home instead of carting in around, so it moves slowly. None of the others are my main reads; I have to pick my next book from my stack and start something from my library pile. I'll see what I feel like when stumbling about preparing for swim lessons tomorrow morning.
Quick stats on my Challenges:
A-Z: 38/52. Nothing new. Can anyone recommend a book whose author starts with an "N"?
Cybils: 45/76. We're in the middle of the next poetry book.
Global Reading Challenge:12/21. All American lately.
Once Upon a Time: LOTS/5. I'm an overachiever. Way past time to start the Shakespeare.
Read Around the World: 12/20. The library has some stuff on hold for me, though.
Science Book Challenge: 2.141/3.141... No change.
Stream: 3/3, 1/3, 3/3, 3/3. This is really fun. I have to rein myself in from splitting in too many directions, though.
Take a Chance: 4/10. About to start challenge #8.
20/11: 17/20. If I caught up on reviewing, I'd be done. This is still true.
What's In a Name?: 5/6. The movement in the title one is hard. I just noticed that my jewel book also had movement in the title. Humph. Still looking.
Where Am I Reading?: 22/50. I added Maine. Why is Oregon so hard? I thought stuff happened in Portland all the time!
