Goodreads kept telling me I was behind on my reading challenge which was stressing me out. I could not figure out how I had managed to fall behind in the very first month with such careful planning, but the numbers didn't lie. Then I discovered I had utterly forgotten to add a book.

I'm a genius.

There's less than a week to join up MidAmeriCon II to nominate for the Hugo Awards (unless you have another membership that gives you the right). I have been pretty laid back about it this year. In part because I've made peace with the fact my favorite part is collecting awesome recs and also because I don't want to get my hopes up and have a repeat of last year.

Anyway, it is still my firm belief that Archive of Our Own is eligible in Best Related Work. DO WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE WHAT YOU WILL.

Week 3: complete! I read Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood by bell hooks (reviewed below, holy crap). For Week 4, my next title selected from The Jar and presented by Doreen, is Ghost Summer: Stories by Tananarive Due:

What's with your subtitle?

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