The Sunday Post hosted by the Caffeinated Reader is an opportunity to share with the blogging community what bookish things are happening in our world. So what have I been doing?
Reading | I’m still working on the second book in V.E. Schwab’s DSoM series. I tend to be a polygareader these days, but I haven’t found another book to begin quite yet. I think that’s because going through each and every book on my shelves has put me in that weird place where I love them all so much I couldn’t possibly pick one.
Watching | I am – either sadly or awesomely – on season 6 of Stargate SG-1. I guess it all depends on how you look at it; I’ve been in a viewing frenzy recently as I’m not getting enough sleep to maintain focus during the day for reading.
Listening |I started a new podcast called The Partially Examined Life in which three former philosophy doctoral candidates discuss the theories of philosophy, the philosophers themselves, and the texts they wrote. As each episode revolves around one short philosophical text, I might actually go full-on geek for this one and read the texts they discuss, and since I am sooooo far behind on this podcast, I have easy access to the lists of texts they covered.
Blogging |Last week, I posted a review of Lady Audley’s Secret to kick off my participation in the Readers Imbibing Peril challenge. This week I have a review going up for Mark Haddon’s the curious incident of the dog in the night-time and Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes.
Doing | Completely overhauling my library!!!! Seriously, it was a mess, and I absolutely hate that I didn’t take a before picture to show you guys. I really didn’t plan the overhaul; I was just sitting at home one day, doing everything except grading papers, and I suddenly went for the bookcases. I’m still not done, but here’s a quick view of where I’m at:
If I get myself going, I’ll set up some giveaways of those six boxes of books I’m removing from the shelves.
Anticipating | Jury Duty. Tomorrow. Bah humbug. I get that it’s my civic duty, but this is my FOURTH jury summons and over half the people I know have NEVER BEEN CALLED FOR JURY DUTY. I’m calling bullshit.
