I don’t really have much to write about today (a statement that makes part of me want to rebel and cry: “There’s always a lot to write about!”), but my intention is to muse a little bit each day, and so if it’s just a short quip about nothing of substance, so be it. I’m still behind on my Novel for the month, but I finally have a nice weekday off, with no additional obligations except having to go to the bank and hit up the post office.
Part of those errands might be a trip to the bookstore. A coworker of mine has been talking about Hyperion by Dan Simmons and his difficulty getting into it, so I’ve been intending to pick it up and read it with him. He’s the type of person that works best with a little shove, so my tackling it and telling him how far behind he is will motivate him to try to elbow through it. I noticed that Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett is out in paperback now, so I may pick up that as well. I would really love to pick up See No Weevil by Kenyon Morr, because I’m a nerd, but I doubt they’ll have it at the bookstore. Yes, I can order it online, but it’s just not the same!
So, any other recommendations for what I should be reading? When your goal is to read everything you can get your hands on, a little direction toward some good stuff is always helpful!
