Ha, yeah.  Reading time suffers during NaNoWriMo.  I just have ten thousand words left, though, so I’ll get back on my fat robot track soonish!

Are you putting together a christmas wish list with books on it?  I have wished for a newly published  history book about leprosy in Norway,  and… the most recent volume of Locke and Key.   I’m considering wishing for a year’s subscription to an online dictionary/thesaurus service, too, because that’s… that’s what interests me. Um. And socks.

(No, seriously, I need socks…!)

What am I neglecting to read because of writing a stupid thing, you ask?  Robert McCammon’s Swan song, which has taken me ages partly because I read The stand earlier this year and the first third just felt very same-ish.   I’ve got the audio copy of Westerfeld’s Afterworlds,  which is very cute, and I’ll probably plow through it at high speed once I can focus again.   On my  phone I’m reading Horrorstör,  and trying out the Scribd app with Seanan McGuire’s Velveteen.     It’s more than I usually read at once; I’ve been very scatterbrainy lately.  Pancakes!

  1. Congrats on getting so far! I started the month with every intention of writing a novel, but suffered from a serious case of waaaaaaaay to many balls in the air. My novel is started, though, and perhaps after my son has become less of a baby and more of a toddler, I will find the time to finish it. Good luck on finishing!
