An update for my status, I'm like 4-5 chapters into "Mostly Harmless", the last in the anthology. Granted this is Douglas Adams, don't gauge your progress in his books by chapter, some are literally one page or even one paragraph long.

Antigone, by Oedipus. I'm reading it for Lit class at school.

It's really good, but it's pissing me off that I'll have to go on an indepth look at themes in order to do well on my exam.

halfway through Jennthebenn's Spirit Desire. Loving it. Makes me nostalgic for the days when the Youth were still assaulting our ears as a group.

Picked up The Shining and The Lost World, but may not start them quite yet. Not sure. I decided to participate in a reading club thingy through my dayjob this month, which chose Good Omens.

Brilliant book. If you're into propaganda, hybrid war and the current trend of rising authoritationism and fascism worldwide, you should read it.

Still “The Terror.”

It’s good and engrossing, but I don’t have a lot of time for reading.

Think “The Leftovers” by Tom Perotta will be next.

Noice.

Not my favorite Gaiman outing, but fun.

I feel like I can tell where Gaimans writing ends and Terry Pratchetts begins. Not bits about that. Prefer one voice throughout. But maybe Im just full of shit.

Over the past few months, after 4+ years of writing book reviews of the books I read, I have started getting requests from individual authors asking for me to review their books. Pretty fucking cool.


What I did not expect, and what happened today, is for an actual book publisher to contact me asking me to review an established authors' new sci fi novel, with the goal of using my review in promotions, and maybe a BLURB ON THE DUST JACKET!


One of my goals with this whole project was to have my reviews be used in a blurb!!!!

Was browsing Amazon and saw this book. I didn't even know this existed. Don't remember any announcement made about it. Has anyone read it? Its described as a biography, but not an auto biography because Lynch didn't write any of the biography stuff, he wrote more stuff about his creative process, which as anyone who has read any interviews from him, can also be pretty uncertain as he hates talking about his movies/art.
