Books Again!


I finally got some books finished! After a bit of a stall with one I had started and simply could not get up the will to finish, I remembered Terry Pratchett had a new book out and promptly went to Barnes and Noble and bought it. Then devoured it in about 4 hours. A couple other books were finished this weekend too.

11. Snuff, by Terry Pratchett

12.Β  Treehouses: View from the Top, by John Harris

Not doing too badly. I seem to be averaging about 2 books a week. I should easily reach 75, then…famous last words. We’ll see. πŸ˜‰

The book I simply could. not. finish, was Alys Clare’s “Out of the Dawn Light.” The story, while moving along somewhat, was just very forced and the attempt at writing as a 13-year-old was really bugging me. I got slightly over halfway and still had no real idea of what, exactly, the whole point was…so the book was tossed on the floor to return. If I had more time to read at the moment I might have finished it, but as I don’t, if I’m not truly interested in or enjoying a book, it goes back.

  1. I remember what reading books was like…

    Glad you’re getting some stuff tucked away. I feel like I only have time to read writing manuals and freelancing tips anymore. Despite that, I think I’m slowly but surely working my way through Frank Herbert’s “White Plague” and Malachy McCourt’s “History of Ireland.”

    Resounding endorsement for Terry Pratchett! I’ll have to check that one out.
