So the first full week of work after vacation is in the done column. It felt like it was at least 10 days long. I’m finally making my way through endless lists of catching up type of things to get done and starting to settle back into a routine.
Reading has been a little hit and miss since we got back from vacation. I did manage to finish The Black Country and then I read a graphic novel this week. 100 Bullets: Vol. 1: First Shot, Last Call is the first in a series that was pretty intriguing. I’ll be posting a full review on Tuesday.
I also finished my audiobook yesterday. The Serpent on the Crown was the penultimate book in the Amelia Peabody series and I went straight into the final book The Tomb of the Golden Bird. I’m going to miss this series when I finish it. It’s been such a fun one. Thanks to Beth Fish Reads and her review of Amelia Peabody's Egypt: A Compendium this week I know I’ll be reading one more book about Amelia in the near future.
I’ve been doing a pretty good job so far this year of mixing up my books and reading a mix of the various categories I talked about back in January. This is the list I initially set up.
- Review book
- Library book
- Book from my bookshelf
- Book from my ebook library
- Graphic Novel
- Section of a Chunkster
I’m finding that by approaching a section of a chunkster as if it were a shorter book is working well. I do need to make sure that I add some non-fiction into the mix though since I have many non-fiction books on my shelves and wishlists
My current stack of books I have out from the library right now looks like this.

That means that it’s time for me to go on a Graphic Novel Reading binge. At least two of these can’t be renewed again and I really want to read them all. So I think the next week or so will be devoted to my audiobook (The Tomb of the Golden Bird) and Part Four of my current chunkster (Outlander) but the majority of my reading will be this stack of graphic novels and a couple of others that are digital only on my ipad.
These are the books in the photo:
- Sweet Tooth #01: Out of the Woods
- The (Nearly) Great Escape (Jack of Fables #01)
- Jack of Fables #02: Jack of Hearts
- Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics Vol. 1: The Paradigm Shift
- Unwritten #08: Orpheus in the Underworlds
- Hawkeye Volume 2: Little Hits (Marvel Now) (Hawkeye)
- Y: The Last Man #09: Motherland
- Y: The Last Man #10: Whys and Wherefores
- Pride of Baghdad
Hope you’re having a great weekend!!
