I am still reading The Murderbot Diaries. I read the first one, All Systems Red, last Sunday, and then finished the second one, Artificial Condition, Thursday night. I’m now on to the third one, Rogue Protocol, tomorrow afternoon. I loved the first one and enjoyed the second one.
Also this week, I ditched my subscription to Audible in favor of a meditation app, Insight Timer. Not only is the app a third of the cost of Audible per year, but also I believe I will get more use out of it than Audible. I’m just not an audiobook person.
I understand the appeal for those who commute or who like to do housework while listening to an audiobook, but I do neither. I work five minutes away from the library where I work and I don’t like doing housework 😉 . The real reason, though, is just that I don’t like being read to when I can read faster than any narrator. Plus I’m weird, at least to some of you, in that sometimes I like to listen to music, mostly instrumental, when I read.
As I write this, it’s a little after 7 p.m. Saturday, and I missed Dewey’s Reverse Readathon, which started at 8 p.m. EST Friday night and ends at 8 p.m. EST Saturday night. I had to work earlier today so I knew I wouldn’t be participating…
To be honest, I think I’m over readathons. After 15-plus years of being a book blogger, I think I’ve done enough readathons. Also with the torch being handed on from Andi and company at Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon to the next generation, I think it’s time to say goodbye to them (readathons). Plus I like to read at my own pace, which is slow – and steady. I don’t need the pressure.
So whatchya’ll reading now? Anything good (or bad). Share in the comments.
