This week is Golden Week in Japan, and I’ve got the whole week off from work. Sweet, right? Extra blogging time!
So I won’t have much time to blog, but I will have more time to read!
I haven’t quite finished last week’s books; I’m a slow reader, and there were a lot of them. I’m nearly finished with Come As You Are, and I’ve requested the The Girl with No Shadow audiobook for the third time (sigh) so hopefully I can finish that soon…
(I’ll admit, that makes these memes hard for me. There was a time when I finished a book (or more) every week, but now I have a full time job, my own apartment, I cook all of my work lunches, and there’s always Tokyo to explore… This “having a life” thing is great, but it does put a dint in my reading time.)
Like I said, I’m still working on everything from last week. The Gauntlet is due back in four days, and I haven’t even had a chance to start it yet. I’ll have to get on that real quick, especially if I want it ready to recommend for the local book award (nominations are due by May 8).
I’m going to pack a print book for my little Golden Week getaway, too; either My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer or Good Omens. Depends on how I feel when I pack… in about an hour.
Reading on my phone is so convenient, but it’s not quite as peaceful as sitting around, looking out at the mountains and drinking tea with a real, ink-and-paper book in my hand.
First I’m gonna catch up with all this stuff. I shouldn’t even be thinking about what I want to read next.
… but lately I’ve been in the mood to reread either The Silmarillion and/or The Drawing of the Three (which is my favorite Dark Tower book).
