Miscellaneous

First: Found via Walker of Worlds Random House has started a new site called Suduvu, where you can download books from them & they're offering five titles free this month! They are: His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik, Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb, Settling Accounts: Return Engagement by Harry Turtledove, Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson and Blood Engines by T.A. Pratt. If you sign up for their emails they will notify you when they have more free titles (monthly?). I downloaded the Naomi Novik title.

Second: I'm giving up on the Helen of Troy audiobook, strictly because it's too long, I'm too far behind & I keep forgetting them in the car & they go back and forth to work with Hubby. :( I've no renewals left.

Third: I'm currently buried under a windfall of library treasures, most of which are on their second renewal. I just picked up three more today & another is coming via interlibrary loan.

Fourth: My reading pace is slowing down. Like the famous molasses flood in January in Boston- sssslllllooowwwwweeeerrrrr and sssslllooowwwwwweeeerrrr and sssssllllooooowwwwwweeeeerrrrrrrr..

That's too bad that you had to give up on Helen of Troy! The Naomi Novik book is really good. I hope you enjoy it! I hope your reading picks up for you soon. Happy Reading!

I hope my reading doesn't get slower! I'm already a slow reader and now I need reading glasses and then after 3 hours my eyes are filled with fluid.

Ahhh, the days when I could read for 10 - 12 hours with only an arm falling asleep. Those were the days.

Kailana~ I'm considering borrowing Helen again. It's like watching a train wreck, though. You already know what will happen, but you can't help but look anyway. ;)

CindyS~ I'm really slow so far this year. I think reading should be about enjoyment and not numbers though. Right? Anyone?

CindyS said...

Absolutely about enjoyment - for the first time this year I forgot about every thing except the book I was reading. Usually I'm undone by 'must blog about this or that'. Silly Cindy.

CindyS~ I'm glad you're reading again. I know you've been through a long slump.
