Reading forecast

I have been reading a lot. And as you read this I will have gone off to the great lake to mostly read a whole lot more, as it will be the main pastime up there in the north country. 

I have the Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine, Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston. I have a book about an English farm being let to go wild. I might be reading the rest of Harry Potter 2, and Prisoner of Azkaban aloud, and I'm open to what I find in bookstores. For the most part I don't expect you to have heard of all these.

I'm not exactly sure what kind of books I like right now. I just plunged through an entire kids' fantasy novel like I was skidding over the surface of it. I think it was called The Marvellers, or something like that. It was about like this kid who, no, I don't think I can explain it. It's gone. All gone.

It was okay.

So to keep track, and not lose the whole week of reading, I'll set down some of my possible books I'll be reading, and then in a week I'll come back and revisit what happened while I still can:

The Reading List:

Red Mars (etc.)

A Memory Called Empire

Arkady and the Night Visitors

HP and the Chamber of Secrets

HP and the Prisoner blah blah blah



Encore Provence

Mystery book from a bookstore

Tune in next week when we'll give the lowdown on my books.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
