In my reading life
I’ve been experimenting with book polygamy. I usually only read one book at a time, but I’ve been reading several at once for all of December. I’m not sure if I like book polygamy, but I did read a lot this week, so maybe it’s helping me read faster. I finished Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie and Burning Down the House: Essays on Fiction by Charles Baxter. I also read The Lord of Opium by Nancy Farmer and The Faster I Walk, The Smaller I Am by Kjersti Annesdatter Skomsvold. Up next is Feed by M.T. Anderson.
In my blogging life
I’m somehow way behind on answering comments again. If you left a comment on my blog last week, I promise I’m not ignoring you.
Also, I’m planning my 2016 reading challenges. I’ve decided to participate in the 2016 Horror Reading Challenge. When I was a teenager, horror was pretty much the only genre I read. I guess I’m going back to my roots next year. I want to read at least 5 horror books, and I want to focus on classic horror. I want to read all the old stuff that influences the modern stuff.
In the rest of my life
Five things that made me happy last week:
- Planning blog posts for January.
- The first draft of The Giant Essay From Hell has been turned in. Now I’m waiting for it to come back so I can do revisions.
- I finally got around to seeing Mockingjay Part 2.
- So many new books. The mailman probably thinks I’m insane because I get abnormally excited about Amazon packages.
- It’s almost Christmas.
Happy holidays, and see you around the blogosphere!
