Reading books

That thing I did non-stop and compulsively as a kid, a teen, a young adult and well into my 30s became that thing I squeezed in now and then while running the bookstore, and then that thing that I mostly didn't get to, and I never really returned to the earlier hunger.

But these last few months, with a long commute to rely on, I've started dipping my toe back into that pool. And one thing that surprised me this morning, and led to this post, is that I'm already forgetting just which books I've read since the fall.

So, like Sharon Lee, I'm going to try to drop myself a note here every now and then, as a reminder.

Right now I'm reading the ebook of
The Wild Ways by Tanya Huff.

Several days ago I finished
Shades of Milk and Honey (the ebook version) by Mary Robinette Kowal.

I already have the ebook purchased of
Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal
(the sequel to Shades) and that's likely to be my next pick.

I have poked away at Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice now and again, and am just not being swept into it.

Last month was a Seanan McGuire binge, and I'll note those on some other post - time to drive down to the ferry!

I'd suggest some books from the days I did a 2.25 hour commute each way on the bus, but they're an odd assortment. Bus/ferry combo reading is different...

Yes, while my commute is about 2 hours each way, only a couple pieces of it (sitting on the ferry for 20 minutes, riding on the bus (unless it's a fast driver and then it is too bumpy)) are suitable for reading. Still, more reading is better than almost none, which is what I was doing before.
