It’s another read-a-thon, and this one runs from the 11th to the 17th of May – that ending day also happens to be my birthday, for which I’m planning a bit of a book splurge, um, in addition to the cheesecake. Peanut buttery gooey cheesecake. You hear me? Yes. Okay. I could talk about books and peanut butter and cheese and cake all day.
This post is a declaration of intent, more than anything. I have quite a lot of scheduled reads in May, even before Seveneves is released. In my May TBR are, among other things, To kill a mockingbird (re-read, indeed), Ishiguro’s The buried giant, Ramez Naam’s Apex, a big chunky book about the black death, some Frances Hardinge, and good grief I have to find the time for The goblin emperor very, very soon.
Ugh, there’s construction work happening directly below my floor. It’s been going on for weeks already and it does not stop. Right now they’re doing this fa-a-antastic on-off drilling into hard walls, like, HURRRRRRR. BURRR. — URRRRRRR. HRRRRRRK. …
It’s hard to read anything in these conditions, so I’ll just… return to building sim houses. For a bit. By which I mean until sundown and then some.
