I feel like shit.
My gracious, loving, generous, 16-month-old Greyson has officially shared his back-to-daycare cold with me. Now the snot monster is trying to devour my cranium from the inside out. Ugg. Can you tell I'm teaching a SF/Fantasy class this term? My description is taking on an Octavia Butler quality. Sorry.
So anyway, I haven't been reading A TON lately due to some very strange and troublesome developments on the homefront of which I will not type, but I have been reading a little bit on a consistent basis. With this snailish pace in mind, I've almost finished Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading by Nina Sankovitch. As a lover of books about books, this one is clearly of interest. Three years after her sister's death, Sankovitch decides to read a book a day in order to slooowww her life down and deal with her grief. A BOOK A DAY?! Who does that? No one! Because most of us have to work. BUT, if I could do it, I certainly would. More thoughts on the horizon. Should finish this one by week's end.
I also received an ARC of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. You may remember me throwing a digital hissy fit because I couldn't get this one from NetGalley -- DE-NIIIIED! But receiving an actual ARC after I requested it directly from the publisher was SWEET! I haven't started it yet, but I fully expect to be punched in the face by its awesomeness in the coming weeks.
What's swirling in your bloggy, bookish world? Anything I need to read?
