It's been forever since I did a Sunday Salon! Didn't help that I disappeared from the blog for a week. It was totally unplanned. Sort of. Blame it on these:
I somehow ended up at a point where I had four committed reads to complete and less than two weeks to squeeze them in. So what's new, eh? Somehow that lead to the blog being abandoned and the books being devoured ravenously. They were pretty good books which made the effort worthwhile. (Cross Currents is still in progress, but that's going good too.)
Two months in, I haven't really completed as many books as this time last year. Which is okay by me, though I'm hoping to read more now. Some of my reading goals are going good however. I've mostly managed to read one short story a week, and I'm surprised that I had neglected this medium for so long. Couple of years back, I did the same thing with graphic novels - and that has become one of my favorite mediums ever. We'll see where the short story medium ends up, but so far, they're the perfect way to sample a challenging or new-to-me author.
When I'm not reading, I'm watching way too much TV. I'm going on a Supernatural kick, thanks to my bro for hooking me on to it. My brother has been responsible for all my TV show fever - Buffy the Vampire Slayer, LOST, Vampire Diaries (though he doesn't watch this one anymore because apparently he grew up, ahem, guys!), Glee, and many others that I cannot remember. Then there's New Girl too. Zooey and Max really give a whole new definition for craziness and cringe-worthiness. In addition, husband and I have been watching Alcatraz (Yay, Jorge!) and Once Upon a Time, and checked out Sherlock on Netflix last night (thanks to my friend Piyush for cluing me in on that.) That's way too much TV for someone who swore them off at one point. Maybe this is going to be one of those years!
Did we just have the longest February ever or was it just me?
