Here’s to L: the worst blogger in the world

That’s a reference to Bernie in “Nottinghill”, aka the Earl of Grantham.

I need to start using images on this blog, and I need to make serious attempts to update it. And, I need to read more books. So for a quick catch up to remind myself what is up:

Reading:

    “Uprooted” by Naomi Novik. I am burned on her Termeraire series but decided to try this book. Unfortunately for me, it looks like it’s going to be a series.
    “The Laundry Files” series by Charles Stross. Finished the first 2 and want to read the 3rd. Held up by the fact that we have moved and not unpacked our mountain of book boxes. Also, these are M’s books and he is not a great believer in organizing his books.
    Various books by Lynn Flewelling. I hope. I’m not sure why I keep buying the Nightrunner series books. Fondness held over from high school, I suppose. The third book disinterested me but I still bought the 4-5th. Not that I’ve read them. I feel stupid.

I should read:

    Various books by China Mieville. Why haven’t I? Rhetorical question. No good reasons, only bad ones. That is to say, I’m lazy and I need dragons in my books.
    “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” by Neil Gaiman. I have a signed copy and I pulled myself together enough to go to a book signing. Why haven’t I read this yet.
    “The Martian” by Andy Weir. Do I want to read it before or after M drags me to the movie theater to watch the movie? Will I join the legions of people who say, “I saw the movie. I don’t need to read the book”? Oh, the horror.
    Work-related articles. NOoooooo
