Re: Dear You 2.0

Dear you,

You literally inspire me. I hope you don't mind that I have stolen some of your techniques and planning ideas to make myself more accountable to my goals.

Sincerely,

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

And yup. My second Butler. My next will probably be Kindred. How did you like it, and what was your first? I liked it well enough but I am not sure which of the two major theories I subscribe to-- that it was written on more of a lark or if it was intended to be a series. I like the idea of a serie...

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

Yeah, I think I mentioned before that I didn't like it very much. I don't see myself giving LeGuin another chance. Fledgling? As in, Octavia E. Butler's Fledgling? I will probably still read Earthsea. I've done Lathe, Dispossed, and Left Hand, but I know a lot of people who are partial to Earthsea....

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

I have come to terms with the fact I am never going to like a LeGuin novel as much as I anticipate, based on content, I will. Alas.

Notable reads this week were Fledgling, One for sorrow, and I finally read World War Z!

Confession: I have no great desire to read Shadows in Flight any time soon. And I actually liked the Shadow books. I'm sure I'll get around to it eventually but right now I don't really care.

Re: Ender Wiggin HAS BEEN CAST!!!!!
