Total pages read: 1064

Total # of books for the year: 37.  I’ve got a lot of reviews to write again, which means I’ve got plenty to do while I’m stuck on the couch and not able to exercise while my back is healing.  I’ve also begun taking notes on Middle-Earth history specifically related to Hobbits because I’m that much of a nerd and find the project to be relaxing and fun.  Yes, there are plenty of websites on the internet that detail anything and everything about Middle-Earth, but I prefer figuring it out on my own and not relying on the potentially inaccurate work of others.  Besides, I can then create a page here showcasing my work 🙂  To help me with my studies, the Boyfriend brought home a fresh loaf of crusty bread, clotted cream, and jam for me to snack on while I read and drink cup after cup of tea.  He is the best boyfriend in all of time and space.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Glad to hear you’re keeping busy and being well taken care of while you’re resting! I hope you get lots of reading and reviewing done.

    As for me, I’m plugging on with Sheri S. Tepper’s GRASS (perfect for your sci-fi summer challenge!) and have just started digging in to the one interesting horror ARC I found at BEA called THE MOTION OF PUPPETS. It’ll help me fill a BOTNS bingo square!

    1. The Motion of Puppets sounds interesting and extremely creepy. I look forward to reading your review of it, and I might add it to my wishlist for October 🙂


  2. I’ve been terribly behind on review writing this year. I think I do best with books I mentally review during the process of reading them- then I at least have something to say.
    I wish you luck on your Hobbit research. I remember thinking what the hell when reading The Fellowship for the first time, due to the preface on Hobbits. Now I get it.

    1. I’m still horribly behind on the reviews. I thought I would get them written this week but it didn’t happen. Maybe this weekend after my Gilmore Girls binge 🙂
