January 2013

Books read in January:

  1. The Curfew. Jesse Ball.
  2. Powers. Ursula K. Le Guin.
  3. The Otherworlds of Medieval Insular Literature. Aisling Byrne.

As well as two abandoned books (Triton by Samuel R. Delaney and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens), to be picked up again when I have more mental energy for that king of reading in my pleasure time.

I was feeling apathetic about reading after abandoning two books, but F. nudged me into reading again by picking up some Le Guin. Now I’m in the midst of The Broken Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin.

In other news, I am now entering the Revision Stage of my PhD thesis. My supervisor informs me that the next several months will become increasingly tunnel-visioned and everything else will fall by the wayside. I suspect she might be right. So, I apologise in advance for a silent blog, missed calls, delayed or forgotten replies to emails, etc. Be patient with me, and wish me luck!
