Five things: reading

1. Reading journals are dangerous things. I have two regulars: Things Mean A Lot and A Striped Armchair. Was secretly a little relieved when RL issues intervened in their keepers' keeping, but there's still, alas, the back archives. A Striped Armchair is especially dangerous for its lists of books that relate to this book.

2. Not sure when my life's goal became Read All The Things, but it does seem to be what occupies my time these days-- my fandom in the absence of a true fannish time occupier. I'd hoped that getting library books would impose some order and limit: books must be returned therefore must be read by a certain date therefore maybe I should read instead of playing solitaire? Hasn't worked that well. I still have the acquiring addiction, and the stacks of unread books has now taken over the kitchen table. Clearly what I need to work on is that maternal reflex, 'you never know when you may need this'. I never know when I may want to read LeGuin so yay for the five volumes left out on the Front Lawn Library.
