This month is zooming right along! Already past the mid-month point and rocketing toward March. So let’s see how my February challenges are going.Continue reading “February Challenges Mid-Month Update”
Last week I wrote about my 2022 reading challenge. I admitted that I have 112 unread books sitting right here on my bookcase that I have not read. And that I self-imposed a book buying ban until I get to under 20 TBRs.
Well, I might have maybe, just slightly underestimated how many TBRs I really have. My underestimation maybe, might have been just a wee bit off by nearly 50%.
Let me explain.Continue reading “Update on 100 Books in 2022”
Yesterday I looked back on what I read in 2021. Today I’m looking forward to what I will be reading in 2022.
I set my annual reading goal at 104, which breaks down to 2 books a week. Even though I read 165 last year and 235 in 2020, 104 will keep me reading without making it too difficult to achieve.
But my big challenge, my biggest challenge this year is that I’ve put myself on a book buying ban.
That’s right. I will not buy any new books . . .Continue reading “A Year of Books: 100 Books in 2022”
The fantastical adventure continues.
You chose to go into the dark, spooky forest. As soon as you step into the forest, you notice the air cooled instantly. The tightly packed canopy doesn’t allow enough sunlight to reach the forest floor, which also means there’s minimal flora or other underbrush that you’d typically see in a forest. The forest floor is covered with a strange, almost glowing moss that also seems to dampen the sounds. The scent of something (or many things) decomposing fills your nostrils. You look around but see no trace of humans or other beings.
You start along the narrow, winding path, occasionally stumbling over unseen roots. After walking for what feels like hours, you hear a small whimpering sound. Almost like someone crying. Walking toward the noise, you see a small cottage. You can tell the crying is coming from the cottage. You grip your small, rusty sword tightly.
Do you enter the cottage or keep going along the path?Continue reading “Wyrd and Wonder TBR”
If you caught my last post, then you read about the 5 reading challenges I’m currently doing (or will be doing).
Today starts the Science Fiction/Fantasy To Be Read Reading Challenge. It runs from today, July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. Twelve months to complete this 50-book challenge. Continue reading “SFFTBR Reading Challenge Starts Today”
Somehow, someway, I have committed myself to 5 different reading challenges. That’s right. Five.
I blame Litsy (mostly).
I also blame Litsy for my exponentially growing TBR, so much so, that I put myself on a book buying ban earlier this month.
(Of course, I may have already broken that ban when I received an email today from Subterranean Press about a special edition of Kevin Hearne’s Hexed, book 2 of the Iron Druid Chronicles. I had already pre-ordered Hounded, Book 1, so I *had* to pre-order Hexed. Right?) Continue reading “Summer ’18 Reading Challenges”
I sometimes come across word that is so perfect and brilliant, but has no direct synonym in English.
Today’s word is such a word. Continue reading “Word of the Day – April 2”
