currently reading: fahrenheit 451

if you’re a nerdfighter too, you’ll know that our summer bookclub reading is Fahrenheit 451. as explained by hank, this book was chosen because more copies of 50 Shades of Grey has been sold than copies of Ray Bradbury’s books during his entire lifetime. i dug through a box of old books to find this copy.

i also ran into my absolutely shredded copy of The Pillars of the Earth. it was already in a bad state when i got my hands on it, and it survived a cross country road-trip. i think it’s missing a few pages too. i started pillars around 10 years ago and it took me two years to finish. by the time i was towards the end, i had forgotten most of what happened in the beginning. later on it was chosen to be read in oprah’s book club but i couldn’t fathom why. maybe i was too immature reading it but i guess it deserves a reread. i also don’t know if i should follow any of oprah’s literary advice but -insert shrug gif here-.

this officially makes my “currently reading” list on goodreads to 6 books, more than i’ve ever done at once. we’ll see how this goes. also if you have a goodreads, add me and i’ll return the favor.

from my desk: leisure reading

Now that I’m out of school and my schedule is a lot more predictable, I’ve had time to actually read for leisure, which is mind-blowing after five years of university. Two issues of ku:nel that dearest Amy mailed me earlier this year, my attempt at coming to terms with what images mean, and some freelancing self-help books, as I’d eventually like to do that. For now I’m following Ilise’s advice and am currently at step 1. Also, I finally put on this little bracelet my sister made for me that’s just darling.

My current theme is a little bare at the moment but I’ll be personalizing it over the course of the next few days/weeks. And I want to thank the readers who kept visiting during that odd unannounced hiatus, I kept procrastinating moving hosts but it got to the point where I couldn’t take being ignored by my hosting company so I moved to a much better, reliable, and friendly place. Yay upgrades!
