…and a little bit of that.
Last weekend, my goal was to keep it short; this weekend, my goal, to dip into a bit of this and that.
As for last weekend’s goal, my intent was to read:
- short stories, specifically 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.
- graphic novels, specifically Ms. Marvel Vol. 5
- and have to wait until that is returned before getting to 7.
- Postcard Poems by Jeanne Griggs.
Sorry, John, but I couldn’t get into the science fiction collection. I think I’m not cut out for esoteric “classic” science fiction (but I loved Isaac Asimov when I was a teen). This weekend, I am trying science fiction again but continuing a series I have read a few in: The Old Man’s War series by John Scalzi. I am planning on at least starting the fifth in the series, Zoe’s Tale, although what I remember from the others, it should be a fairly quick read.
Last weekend, I did finish the other two books, Ms. Marvel Vol. 5 and Postcard Poems, the latter which was very good and the former which was good enough for me to continue on with the rest of the series. I have the next five checked out from the library where I work.
I also have the next in the Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri lined up: The Treasure Hunt. However, I own this next one so I’ve had a hard time getting to it because I know it’ll be there whenever I want to get to it.
Reading isn’t the only thing that I have planned. I want to get out for a walk or walks as it’s going to be cooler than it has been. And tomorrow, I plan on being in The Chill Out Tent.
What are you up to this weekend? And the upcoming month?
