Failing in Another

Well, "failing" is probably not the right word. But I've decided that I don't want to continue with the 50-Book Challenge. I _think_ I would probably have done it (although I'm not absolutely sure), but I'm a bit annoyed with myself that I care, and I think this is one obsessive-compulsive list thing that I just don't want to do. Also, I was finding it affecting my reading choices and even pleasure - I was more pissed off than usual if a book I started did not grab me, because it seemed like a waste of time. I've not been rereading, even if I wanted to, because re-reads did not "count." I was choosing not to read something long or difficult because it would set me off my reading schedule.


I just need to stop it. So I'm going to.

  • RIP Ray Bradbury

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
