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?
