Sunday Summary ~ 25 February 2018

Some random thoughts for the end of February:

  • There was a lot of reading this month! And more reviews written than I had hoped for! I’m kinda surprised since there were so many other family things going on. (Several family visits, a birthday, and Chinese New Year — not to mention stuff Mr. Wyrm and I did without the extended family.) Still, lots of reading!
  • I did not have nearly as much in the way of finished knitting projects, but that may be because I have somehow expanded the number of projects I’m working on at once again…
  • I think I need a name for this year’s personal reading challenge, so since I got my 2018 reading list from multiple “read before you die” lists, I’m going to refer to it as my Bucket List Books challenge.
  • I haven’t made much progress on the Bucket List Books yet, because the books I had started in 2017 took me longer to finish than I expected. Oh well, I suspect the 2018 books will carry over into 2019 in the same fashion, so it’s all a wash in the end.
  • Goodreads did have The Wandering Inn in its database. I know, because I added it. Now, however, it’s gone. Very strange…

  1. Yay for reading!
    So, for The Wandering Inn, you’ve hit a Goodreads weirdness – I’m sure it was removed by a librarian. Not sure if it’s because it’s a web serial or the creator complained it was in GRs or what. Online publications like that are always a fight. I just keep them in LibraryThing.

    1. Huh, I figured it was probably a web-serial issue or something. I may move it over to LibraryThing, or I may just keep it only on the blog. I was actually surprised to find it there in the first place.
