Bout of Books Mid-Week Update

bout16As it turns out, this hasn’t been the best week for a read-a-thon, but at least my commute gives me a lot of reading time.  (And I finally turned in my thesis!)  Here’s my progress so far:

Company Town by Madeline Ashby – finished.  This is a very cool book publishing this week by Tor.  A mix of science fiction, thriller and mystery.  It’s very strange and has a great lead character. company

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – About 30%.  This book starts out as a look at a few characters in Nigeria in the 1960s, but now it’s very intense. I love Adichie’s writing.

Dragonfly in Amber – reading the last part slowly, I don’t want to rush through it.

Rush Oh!  by Shirley Barrett – I’ve really just started this book, I don’t plan to get into it until Half of a Yellow Sun is finished (and that’s probably all I can do this week).


Thinking about taking tomorrow off as a mental health (reading) day.  What do you think?

      Thanks Jen! It seems like all I talk about these days, but now it’s done so I can think about other things!

    Oh that’s clever, I’ve never thought to take a mental health day off, if I did I probably wouldn’t ever return to work LOL

    Company Town sounds very intriguing will definitely check that out 😉

      Of course I didn’t actually do it – I went into work as usual, but it was nice to think about! I’ve got a lot of leave coming up this summer so that will have to do.
