Keeping it short this weekend…


With short stories as my intent tomorrow is to read short stories from The Very Best of the Best: 35 Years of The Year’s Best Science Fiction, edited by Gardner Dozois. A friend recommended collections by Dozois so I’m starting here.

I’m also planning on reading Ms. Marvel Vol. 5: Super Famous by writer G. Willow Wilson and illustrator Takeshi Miyazawa. I also have Vol. 7: Damage Per Second, but a patron at the library has Vol. 6: Civil War II, so I’ll have to wait until that is returned before getting to 7.

And last but not least, I bought a copy of Postcard Poems by Jeanne Griggs that I want to dig into. According to her biography on the publisher’s website, Griggs “is a reader, writer, traveler, and ailurophile. She directs the writing center at Kenyon College, plays violin in the Knox County Symphony, and reviews books at Necromancy Never Pays.” It is in that last context with which I’m familiar with and how I learned about her collection via Instagram.

So, what are you reading this weekend? Feel free to share in the comments or post a link to your latest post about your reading. This post is part of The Sunday Salon, hosted every weekend by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz.

  1. I finished Chuck Wendig’s latest, The Book of Accidents over the weekend and started devouring Megan Abbott’s August release, The Turnout. Along with A LOT of Olympics watching and solving crossword puzzles on my phone.

    Did you get any reading done with all those Marvel movies you watched? 😉

  2. I finished Count The Ways by Joyce Maynard last night. I’ve read and enjoyed her writing before but this book. So heartfelt. I was sad to read the last chapter.

    So you watched nearly all the Marvel movies. I realize that although I have seen most of them, I could not tell you what happens in each one. They are kind of disposable entertainment for me.


  3. I am listening to Americanah and reading Force of Nature; I am enjoying the first immensely!


  4. I haven’t returned back to Ms. Marvel since I read the first volume a while ago. Lately I have been reading other Marvel comics so I may be back soon to read the next issues of Ms. Marvel.

    I hope you have a good week!


  5. I’m not into Science Fiction or anything Marvel except the movies but I do love Postcards so Postcard Poems by Jeanne Griggs sounds interesting to me.

    I hope you have a great week!


  6. Postcard Poems…Ms. Marvel…Very Best of the Best…that’s a great variety of reads to choose from. And poetry, comics, sci fi…those are three genres I haven’t read from in quite a while. I’m eager to hear what you think about each of these.
