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!
