TSS: Too busy writing
Today’s note will be very, very quick. I haven’t been around here (or anywhere else on the internets) very much recently, since I’ve been chugging away on the home stretch of my dissertation, and I’ve barely had time to read anything, let alone spend time blogging. Thank goodness for the read-a-thon giving me a backlog of reviews to post, or else things would have been very quiet around here indeed.
I’m also grateful for the backlog because the book I’m currently reading is a serious chunkster – probably bigger than anything I’ve read since the Outlander series. It’s The Passage by Justin Cronin, and despite its size, it’s moving pretty quickly – it’s wicked compelling thus far, which is ordinarily a good thing, except when I have to put it down and get back to work on my thesis chapter! I also have another chunkster checked out from the library and waiting for my attention – Guy Gavriel Kay’s new book Under Heaven – so between the fatty-fat books and me working like fury, I suspect I will burn through my backlog in no time.
But! The light at the end of the tunnel is a’comimg! Dissertation or bust!
