So, the last time I posted a real blog was on August 22nd. A lot has happened since then. Especially on my bookshelf. So what have I been reading?
It’s August 2nd, which means my last round of bi-monthly goals is officially at an end. So, how did we do?
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a lot of time to get some work done and catch up on some things, which prompted this blog.
Alright, part 2 here we go. In my last blog about 1984, we talked about the double speak/double think that’s reflected in both the recent presidential election. Maybe it isn’t fair to just focus on the current president, because I’m sure politicians from all walks of life have been guilty of falsehoods since politics became a thing, but I digress.
Hello everyone! I just wanted to take some time today to tell you how we got here. Where is here? Here is this blog. A lot of things had to happen to bring me to create this blog, stringing together words every week for your hungry eyes. So let’s start from the beginning.
Hello, friends! It’s time for another book review! Hooray! Today we’re talking about The Neuromancer by William Gibson. I just recently read this book in January of this year after having it on my to read list for a solid decade. It might have been longer, actually, because I remember buying my copy at Borders when I was in high school. Let’s all have a moment of silence for the loss of the beloved Borders.
I’m going to make a confession. I am having a really long week and, although I have some blog ideas in the wings, I just can’t commit to sitting down this morning and writing one of them. I do want to get up a blog as I usually do on Friday, so I thought maybe a life update was in order.
I have anxiety. Really bad, crippling, life controlling anxiety.
I’m breaking a few of my own rules here. This book was not on my to read list as discussed in a previous blog. I put a hold on it at the library and it happened to be available so I went ahead and checked it out, which is breaking another rule where I’m not supposed to put things on hold while I’ve got other things to read. Oh well.
