So far I have finished 2 graphic novels, one novel, a short story, and am about 25% in on a Kij Johnson novella. After a break, and some lunch, I will get back up to speed.
That is my reading level check in but what I am REALLY accomplishing is spending a whole day reading! I have found my new favorite short story of 2017- The City Born Great by NK Jemisin.
Can I just take a minute here and say how grateful I am to live in a world (and a dimension) in which N.K. Jemisin not only exists, but she PUBLISHES SOME OF THE GREATEST WORKS EVER WRITTEN? I am so, so lucky.
" I just went Jersey on your ass" needs to be on a t-shirt and I need to own it. PRONTO.
That woman is a goddess. I knew her novels were awesome, but her short fiction is .......they have not yet invented the word.
Another happy discovery! There is little/no WiFi in the backyard so I am reading with almost zero distractions. That does mean I'm probably missing mini-challenges and other reader's updates, but I'll read them later. I just don't want to fall into the time suck.
That said, peace out!
I am posting hourly on Instagram, but I'm being kind to myself so if I miss an hour, I miss an hour.
