Been doing that heavy reading thing i been known to do. Almost over, just hit 107 books and i got to admit I’m a little terrified. I know I said I would write something of my own after 108 but that was January now its here. Its right on top of me. Holy Fuck. So Yeah one more book then I start my own person write fest 2013 and then I’ll end the year out with some for fun reading just to see how many I can finish this year on.
Book Journal Currently Stands at:
hit 91, something about July/August all the squeals just hit on after another
Just finished Lexicon by Max Berry my 88 book of the year but now I seem to have a crippling fear that social networks are part of a massive attempt to hack my mind and thoughts
How come there isn’t an episode calendar type site for books.
Something that can just shoot you an email or some type of reminder “hey you read everything this author ever wrote and they have a new book out Tuesday FYI”
I really don’t get some of the ideas behind required reading in junior and high schools. There’s a book, with really adult jokes and themes that we won’t explain or point out to you cause it might pollute your innocent child mind but we’re gonna require that you push through, read and half digest it anyway thus souring you on a probably good book and reading in general. why?
I wonder how authors feels when their entire bibliography is read in like 2 days and if it will effect publishing like binge media consumption effected TV
Also my eyes burn after 2 days of reading everything Seanan McGuire
I feel like the line between paranormal mysteries/noir and paranormal romance novels is about paper thin. When the blurb on the back of your book talks about fighting demons, finding killers and averting disaster, I feel greatly cheated when half the book is about people having sex or their totally not creepy (but really it is) relationship. And oh there might be a demon or two.
Edit: 9 out of 10 times you can tell when this is gonna happen in the novel you are reading based on the gender of the protagonist, If it is a woman it’s almost guaranteed to happened but never with a man.
