My reading this year has been very erratic at best, and the last two months have not been very productive as far as opening books go. In fact, I haven’t done any leisure reading. At all. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
I have plenty of excuses, of course. October and November have been quite busy. But the fact remains that I finished the last book I read, The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination, on September 23rd, and the the last short story I read, Cancer (from the Machine of Death anthology), was finished on September 27th.
Well, I plan to finish up Machine of Death as well as the October, November, and December issues of Clarkesworld Magazine. And just because I haven’t been reading does not mean that my “To Be Read” stacks haven’t been growing. I picked up a few (few = more than a few) books at the Collingswood Book Festival this year, and also brought home some books from The Book Asylum, my favorite local used book store.
Wish me luck!
