Did you know that Twitter is completely addictive? No, really, it is. I scorned it at first, and I'm still trying to avoid micro-posts like “I'm watching TV right now”, but otherwise … I'm fully hooked on the damn thing.
Um. That's not why we're here. We're here for the weekly What Are You Reading on Mondays? Event hosted here: http://j-kaye-book-blog.blogspot.com/
What am I reading? Well, Monday, and invisible internets people, that's a bloody good question.
Not a lot, but I am reading, which I consider to be progress. So on the go, I have The Matriarch by Witi Ihimaera, which I'm reading on my breaks at work, when not distracted by evil gossipy magazines, and Soldier in the Mist, Book 1 of the omnibus Latro in the Mist by Gene Wolfe, which is about a Roman soldier, in 479BC, who has lost his short-term memory. Every night, he forgets what has happened, so he writes everything down.
I'm not very far into it, but I suspect greatness is going to ensue.
The Matriarch is considered a classic of New Zealand literature and hey! I just thought of something! I bailed on my April classic, which was supposed to be The Jungle Book. I can totally count The Matriarch though.
I mean, um, the only book I read last week was City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare.
Laptops and lullabies. :)
