My plan? My plan… Well, in my last post, I laid some grand plans to NOT read any more contemporary women’s fiction for the rest of the year – which hurts me to say, actually, because I don’t want to deny or suggest that I think I won’t miss out on some really great books. (Maybe a better grand plan is to work on my skills at constructing a proper sentence. That one didn’t sound too good but I’m also too lazy to worry about fixing it. Thus the need for getting started on some sort of plan?)
In my immediate future, I have plans to print out and really study the short list nominees for BBAW and vote – TODAY! Deadline is TODAY!!!!
And after that (still working on today), besides attending to my mounting laundry needs, is to finish up reviews of The Father of All Things by Tom Bissell, Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. (Did you notice that?! I’m done with RIP IV Challenge!!!!!!!!)
Later/soon, I intend to verify my completion of a Minor in The World Citizen Challenge – I’m not sure but I think I read three books to finish that up and I would like to do a status update for all my challenges.
Softdrink wants me to read Lolita with her…
I’m thinking that I should pick up Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close now that i’s September, and…
I must announce that I’m giving up on my goal to read 100 books this year. The pressure to do so will distract me from the pleasure of reading whatever book-in-hand I’m trying to enjoy. so, RASPBERRY to that and we’ll see if I best last year’s goal of 75.
So… That’s the plan!
