[personal profile] renay
It's been a wild time the last month. Not only have I been reading (and more things than appear here), I have:

  1. Started walking every day.
  2. Quit several types of food. Goodbye forever, BEEF.
  3. Taken up a regular sleeping schedule.
  4. Resigned my co-chair in the OTW. I'm staying on the committee which is where my other reading time has gone. I'm reviewing docs to get back into the staff-work swing of things.
  5. Rearranged my office. I added a new bookshelf! By the time I get settled in this as my office we'll be packing for Oregon. OOPS.

CHALLENGE: 100 Unique Women Writers

This was the first week of the challenge. Last week I chose The Steerswoman by Rosemary Kirstein and it's complete! For this week, I chose Dark Orbit by Carolyn Ives Gilman, as presented by Doreen, my assistant:

Also, all the books this week came off my shelf and I wasn't even doing the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge (is that the hashtag? I'm out of touch with the youths again). I'm giving myself five space bees for this accidental accomplishment.

Things I read!

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
