Got to say, I got a lot of reading done this past week. And I also have to say that it wasn’t actually as much as I thought I’d get done. 2 of the days were half days of having the apartment to myself, and 2 more of those days involved having to go out and do stuff and thus interrupt my reading groove. Had those things been different, I might have been able to get another book finished, beginning to end.
Thought what I did get done was nothing to sneeze at. Let’s check the goals list:
Finish reading Nnedi Okorafor’s Who Fears Death Read the first 14 chapter of George R R Martin’s A Game of Thrones for the Mithril Wisdom readalong Read Elizabeth Bear’s Shoggoths in Bloom Read Catherynne M Valente’s second Fairyland book
- Read D B Jackson’s Thieftaker
- Read Kameron Hurley’s God’s War
- Read Murr Lafferty’s The Shambling Guide to New York City
Finish the second half of Michael Sullivan’s Theft of Swords Finish reading Mike Carey’s The Steel Seraglio
So in all, I finished 5 books (though 3 of them were already partly read, but 1 of those was 2 books in one anyway), and my reading goals for A Game of Thrones were met. And even if I didn’t read everything I set out to (and between you and me, I didn’t think I could, but I wanted to plan for it just in case), I still read quite a bit, got done some stuff that needed to get done, and had a very enjoyable few days doing it.
And now if you’ll excuse me, I have about a zillion reviews to write up. Shame I won’t be spending a bunch of days in this coming week alone and with few distractions, because then I’d challenge myself to a write-a-thon just to get caught up here!
