Oh boyo, am I glad it’s Friday! I only have a few plans this weekend, so I am hoping to relax for a bit. Maybe. Hopefully. Maybe get some gaming in. That would be nice.
Reading progress this week was slow, but it’s also just been a weird week in general. Still, progress is progress. As of yesterday, I have:
- Read the last chapters of Kushiel’s Dart, chapters 81-96.
- Read the first 16 chapters of Kushiel’s Chosen.
- Started Heir of Fire and read the first 25 chapters (that’s actually more than I expected.
- Read the first 6 chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Overall, that’s not bad. I had forgotten how far I got into Heir of Fire before I looked it up. I’ve been keeping a daily reading log to see how far I get each day. For some reason, that has been the main thing that has kept me from falling into another reading slump. I like jotting down that I read two chapters here, five chapters there. It keeps me focused.
Blogging has been going really well. I am very excited about starting up my Chapter-A-Long posts with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I haven’t done that in a really long time and, while it is not the fastest way to read a book, it is kind of fun to really dig into the little pieces that you enjoy instead of just remembering the larger, overall plot lines. I’m going to try to do this with all the #PotterheadReadAlong19 books this year, which will go into July. Might have to do more than one chapter at a time, or just multiple blog posts each day for it, since the later books are much, much longer. I’ll have to think about it.
I’ve also started blogging a bit more, not too much, on my personal blog, My Crooked Little Path. It’s a lot of venting and complaining right now (or screaming into the void, as I like to call it), but it’s helping me work through some stuff. I actually have some followers over there now, which is nice.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will probably be back tomorrow with another Chapter-A-Long post (and of course, another one today in a little while), but other than that, I will see you all on Monday! Cheers!
