What Are You Reading: January 17, 2011: 01/17/11
I have two Cybils graphic novels to finish. My goal is to finish them this week so I can be done with them before school starts up again.
My other reading has been short stories as I'm terribly behind in my issues of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, wishlist reading, reading for fun and reading with my children. Ghostopolis has the distinction of being both a Cybils book and a wishlist book.
On my currently reading, I am very slowly going through Kraken by China Miéville. I am reading ten pages a night before bed. The Canary Trainer is another wishlist book and it starts with the same Sherlock Holmes book as the Beekeeper's Apprentice does. Reading Meyer's book brought back fond memories of first starting King's series so I have checked out the first book to re-read.
Finished Last Week:

I have two graphic novels I want to finish this week. That's really not a lot of planning.

What a great reading week you had! Ghostopolis sounds interesting!
Comment #4: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 22:44:12
Ghostoplis is worth a read. I'll have more to say about it after the winners are announced for the Cybils.

I don't read too much right before bed because 10 pages always turns into 100! Have a great reading week.

I'm not much of a late night reader. Even when I have insomnia I don't read after midnight.

A nice variety to choose from. Have a great reading week!

Comment #9: Monday, January, 17, 2011 at 16:29:36
Wow, that's a LOT of books! I can only read one at a time.
Comment #10: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 22:51:26
Reading more than one book at a time is no different than following more than one TV series a week.

They were mostly short stories, picture books and graphic novels. Not many words to read.

Comment #14: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 22:56:10
Notexactly. It was three short stories, six graphic novels, three picture books and one novel. So all together probably the same amount of words as one chunkster.

I love the idea of reading the Cybils lists. I may try to get through a few of the lists with my kids.
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 22:59:13
I'm a second panel judge for the Cybils in the graphic novels category. So the graphic novels are assigned reading. I will read books from the other lists later for fun.
Comment #17: Monday, January, 17, 2011 at 22:02:20
Wow! You've got a lot of books going on! I don't recognize a lot of those titles though.
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 23:02:20
I will get them all reviewed eventually.
Comment #19: Tuesday, January, 18, 2011 at 01:30:01
Good luck reading you Cybils books :)
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 23:06:13
Thank you. I'm almost done.
Comment #21: Tuesday, January, 18, 2011 at 08:56:31
I am absolutely floored by the amount of reading you do in a week. How do you find the time? Jennifer (An Abundance of Books)
Comment #22: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 23:08:58
I read primarily short fiction and I don't watch much television.
Comment #23: Tuesday, January, 18, 2011 at 22:25:18
I am very curious about Kraken, and I am now very tempted to get a subscription to that magazine! Enjoy your books!
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 23:10:22
FSF is a lovely magazine. If you prefer ebooks, they also have an electronic version of their magazine. Kraken is great but I can only manage about ten pages a day. The plot is very dense.
