My New Home of Books Part One: The Reading Nook
One of the greatest pleasures of setting up my new home has been establishing a real reading nook for the first time. Believe it or not, I am not a big one for reading at home. Most of the time I read on the train, or in a coffeeshop, or in a waiting room. ...

We moved, and I'm finally settled down enough to start blogging again. In the past couple of weeks I started and stopped a bunch of books, but I did manage to finish a couple- So Much For That Winter , by Dorthe Nors, for the Nordic Book Club, and Sweet Lam...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
The short answer is not much. I gave up on Independent People ; it's good and everything, but I just couldn't hack it any more. I'd pick it up, read a paragraph and go "I can't do this." Then a day later the same thing would happen, then it would happen aga...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I did manage to finish a book last week- Jeff Vandermeer's Authority . It was really good. I want to read Acceptance sooner rather than later, but considering I'm still reading The City of Mirrors I need a break from science fiction and will spend some time...

I don't have much to show for my reading week! I only managed to get about 100 pages into The City of Mirrors this week, but it's a pretty good 100 pages. Re-reading the series from the beginning was the right thing to do; these books are too immersive to b...
