I haven't done this in a while...
The Goddess of Vengeance Wore Pink Galoshes...12,685 words.
I should be really productive with The Goddess this weekend, as I'm in Georgia for the month (boo!) and don't have MJ to entertain me. That's not a boo for Georgia, just a boo for being away from home for so long. On the positive side, I figure this month can be like my very own NaNo.
Of course, when I travel I read a lot, and this was a great week for that! I finished Birthright by A. Roger Ekrich (very interesting history of a boy born in Ireland to nobility, then transported to America by his usurping uncle when his father died, who ultimately inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped). And in the novel domain, I finally finished Nation by Terry Pratchett (the book had unfortunately been lost in my gym bag for a few days... shh... don't tell the library that it may smell slightly of gym now). On the plane and yesterday, I read Ayelet Waldman's Love and Other Impossible Pursuits (great fiction) and Caro Peacock's A Dangerous Affair (a mystery set in Victorian England).
Not to sound like a complete cheerleader, but I loved all these books. I'm going to have to make a bookstore trip this weekend, though... I expect to end up with some down time at work (interminably boring, attendance mandatory... my favorite). I've been working my way through all the recommendations I had last time, and I think I've hit them all now... Sookie Stackhouse, Hex Hall, Nation, etc... so tell me. What are you guys reading? And what should I be reading?
How's the writing going for you guys, too?
