Nine months of the year have gone already. If 2020 just disappeared in a blur, despite seeming never-ending, I don’t know what 2021 has done. It seems to have taken a long time to get here, yet the idea that it’s three months till the year end seems ridiculous. I have, however read a lot of books!
SpaceTime Reading Challenge – nine months in
Firstly how are you doing on your #spacetimereads? I have made a little progress since last quarter, and have just two to go to reach my target.
I’ve been having a little trouble working out whether some of the books I’m reading should be counted as time travel. I included A Swiftly Tilting Planet (reviewed Saturday coming), but discounted Cauldron’s Bubble, which definitely does twisty things with time, but not as we’d know it, Jim. Was it meant to be time travel?
I also read two scifi ‘romances’ set in the Drath universe, one of which I enjoyed. The world-building is terrific, and the aliens… brilliant. I could find others in this setting, not in the romance group, if I look. But there are so many books to read…
Let me know how you’re doing, or I will carry out my threat to visit you 🙂
Three other Reading Challenges
It seems that limiting myself to the three other challenges has worked; I’m getting through my TBR, and I’ve nearly hit my overall Goodreads target as well! I’m just on to 50 out of 52. I knew if I didn’t put down 60 I’d make it easily. This has happened before!
Alphabet Soup: three letters to go, V, X and Z. I have a book on my actual shelf, for V, just want to have a settled week to devote to it. X and Z are trickier. I’m using a series beginning with Z, and I’m not sure I’ve found an X yet. I have one earmarked from my TBR, but I don’t seem to have a copy…
Non-Fiction Adventure: I hit this in June, which is a bit silly, but I have one on my list for this autumn which will go towards next year’s target. I really pight to get more of those on my shelf onto the ‘read’ pile, though. Useful for the TBR mountain, though.
Mount TBR: I’ve now reached halfway up the third mountain, which is unheard of for the nine months point in the year! Only six to go, and the V and Z are both eligible. Get a couple more of the spacetime reads from the TBR list, and then I’m nearly at the top of Mount Vancouver with 36 books off my TBR!
So, for once, it looks as if I won’t be rushing to finish six books between Christmas and New Year this year. I bet I’ll be reading anyway.
