A few notes as I lie in bed with coffee and the computer on this Sunday morning. First, I’m a bit surprised that it is only Sunday–yesterday was so long (7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. the next day) and filled with such a variety of fun, it seems like it must have been at least two days.
I’ve added a new page to track all my reading in 2010–see the “2010 Reading List” at the top. The last thing on the list will generally be what I’m currently reading. There’s also a page to track my progress in the various reading challenges I’m working on.
I’ve finished the first book of the year! Xenogenesis was a very interesting book, with some challenging ideas about interpersonal (and interspecies) relationships; it will deserve a post or two of its own, but they’re not going to come easily, and therefore, not soon. But trust that the ideas are bubbling away, deep down.
In a perfect bit of timing, the day after I finished that book, the library notified me they finally had a copy of Alan Bradley’s The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie on hold for me. I waited on the reserve list for about five months for this book, so I’m really hoping it lives up to Carl V.’s high opinion of it. (With an 11-year-old mad genius for a sleuth, how could it not?)
