My August Reads, 2014

Book StackI have definitely been in catch-up mode this past month. In addition to falling behind with all of my reading, I actually let my Clarkesworld subscription lapse! Once I took care of that oversight I’ve been spending time bringing myself up to speed with the latest issues.

Now the question is whether or not I’ll be able to meet my goals of reading 52 books and 200 short stories this year. I suspect that I’ll be sneaking in an anthology or two before the year is out in an effort to maximize my reading efficiency!
