Guys, we made a thing! So my awesome friends started a book club and podcast called WESTERN CANNONBALL wherein we are reading western classics, talking about them over dinner, and podcasting the whole thing. We'll be doing it about once a month. The first podcast is already up on multiple sites (thanks to Lance). The … Continue reading Western Cannonball – Gilgamesh and Skinnydipping
Apologies for not posting for two weeks. The Children's Museum of Manhattan where I work announced the purchase of a new building and also had one of our largest events of the year all within a span of a few weeks and I got a crazy ringside seat for all of it. I got to … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – January 2018
Back at the start of 2015, annoyed with the fact that I couldn't track rereads on Goodreads, I started keeping a spreadsheet on Google Docs of the books I was reading.

My resolution for 2018 is to … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – December 2017

Given how busy I was in November - I was traveling 17 days out of 30 - I'm not surprised it went quickly, or that I got very little reading done. I also didn't win NaNo. But I did get writing … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – November 2017
So, October tried to outdo September for passing quickly. It was all rereads this month. And almost exclusively rereads of a single author, or rather a pair of co-writers. I basically devoted the month to the Kate Daniels series. I did pick up several new books towards the end of the month, notably Nnedi Okorafor's … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – October 2017
Wow, September went by really fast. I've just taken a look at my reading list and I only read 10 books this month (my average is closer to 15). Some of that I'm sure was catching up on a few animes. But I've also been knitting and spinning quite a bit to get ready for the colder weather.
