I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Holds have been coming in faster than I anticipated and I'm confronted with quite the stack of library books!
First come the ones that I can't renew: Remarkable Creatures and The Five Red Herrings. Chevalier's Remarkable Creatures is a fictional version of Mary Anning's life, an interesting counterpart to The Fossil Hunter, the non-fiction version that I recently enjoyed. The Five Red Herrings will be interesting, as I continue to read a biography of Dorothy L. Sayers, author of the book.
I will pick up Queens of Innis Lear this evening at the library and I suspect that it will also have holds after me. I will have to read it soon too.
I've read a few pages in The Fires of Heaven, but it is such a kitten-squisher that it's going to take a little while. And I'll see where I can squeeze After Hello and The Silver Chair in around the other titles.
I have a meeting with my financial planner tomorrow, to discuss how quickly I am able to retire. Then (shhh....don't tell anyone) I have two unplanned weekend days! I know I need to do a bit of laundry, but if I don't do any other chores, I'll still be fine. (That's the benefit of doing an incredible amount of housework last Saturday).
The weather is finally smartening up, sunny and above freezing, so I may venture outside on some kind of adventure!
Have a great weekend, friends!
