- I’ve started reading my 54th (!) book of the year, John Scalzi’s “The Collapsing Empire”. I’m not skim trading anything, it’s just that my newly acquired Kindle Paperwhite allows me to fill more empty time with reading.
- Adding more strength workouts to my training schedule has made me appreciate yoga more.
- I’ve played Matt Leacock’s “Forbidden Sky” cooperative board game and it is fantastic. I’ll post a review once I’ve run through it a few more times.
- It’s still not raining here, which is worrying.
- I’ve been back to writing every day, even if some days it’s only 200 words.
Keep at it, don’t let them get you down, you’re awesome! Swing for the fences.
An eclectic bunch arrived today. Can’t wait to dig in.
Bought these at Shakespeare and Company in Paris, which is not what it used to be (a fantastic secondhand bookstore), and has lost a great deal of its character and charm (no more wishing well), but still stamps books. For the sake of nostalgia I bought these there. Ali Smith’s “Autumn” was a delight, and I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read any Bryson yet, but I have heard good things about him.
As for the last pile, Neil Gaiman’s “Art Matters” is a lovely little book, excellent as a gift, and the illustrations are magnificent. The rest still await for me to finish reading Ann Leckie’s “Ancillary Sword“.
New books arrived today and I can’t wait to dig in.
I’m currently a third of the way through Italo Calvino’s “If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller” and I love his descriptions of reading experiences.
Field Notes Signature sketchbook and Tombow Mono 100 F pencil. The Seed Radar eraser did the not so fine job of erasing a few lines.
I’m reading Daniel O’Malley’s “Stiletto” right now, and more than halfway through I still can’t figure out why that’s the book’s title.
Potato quality photo of a potato quality doodle. Field Notes Signature Sketch Book, Pilot Futayaku Double-Sided Brush Pen. I love this brush pen, but the fine side dried up, so I was forced to use the wide side (it’s called medium, but it’s a broad brush, don’t let Pilot fool you). A bit of shaking and doodling later and the fine side is working once again – yay!
