This is going to be a short post today. Thanks to work and life, I didn’t get much reading in last week. I read two books and they were rather short ones at that. I finally got around to reading Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones which was lovely and I’m sorry I waited so long to read it. I also read The Thieves of Manhattan by Adam Langer which wasn’t bad either. The Thieves of Manhattan is about the publishing industry and was a tart, little book full of sarcastic and biting remarks about the industry which I found quite entertaining. I used to work for the publishing industry’s lobbying group and some of the comments/insights from the book were even funnier having met and worked with some people in publishing.
The King of Attolia which I’m reading now is moving along rather slow but that has more to do with me being tired than the book itself. If I can, I plan to steal a few hours later today. Maybe after a nap…
I made an attempt to update my challenge page recently and found I’ve completed or have come very close to completing most of the challenges except one – A Tournament of Reading. I put several history books on hold at the library last week with the intention of reading them for the challenge so we’ll see how that goes in the next few weeks. I wasn’t able to find everything I had on my list but I found a few that look good so I’m going with it.
Since I have a bit of work to do and still want to get some reading in later, I’m calling it. Happy Sunday. Next week I plan to have more to share. 🙂
