We’re both doing less reading, due to watching a lot of Olympics plus Barbara’s quilting and my current lack of enthusiasm (perhaps due to the fact that our weather has caught up to the rest of the country and it’s gotten quite hot here). I’m getting tired of a steady diet of graphic novels, and after this week will be slowing down some, but here’s what I read through in the past week:
Superman For Tomorrow volumes 1 and 2, Teen Titans – A Kid’s Game, Teen Titans – Beast Boys and Girls, X-Men – The Dark Phoenix Saga and Xtreme X-Men Volume 1. I found the Superman volumes a bit tedious, the Teen Titans fun and the X-Men, well, pretty boring. I used to like X-Men, but I guess I’ve lost the love. Of this lot, I’ll only keep Beast Boys and Girls. I’m clearing a lot of space, and that’s good. There are still stacks to go through, but I’ll need a break.
I have an anthology I’m halfway through, an omnibus of James White SF novels I’m two-thirds into, a mystery novel I’m just starting. More on all that next time, probably.
Barbara is still working her way through Henning Mankill’s The Fifth Woman which she’s enjoying. She’ll finish it up in a few days, quilting and Olympics-watching permitting.
How about you?
What are you reading?
