It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 21): 10/21/19
I'm making progress on "City Lights." I think I have another two hours of work before it will be finished. It's a little hard to tell since it's an abstract. Abstracts aren't my usual style, so it's uncharted territory for me.
I'm sticking with Inktober and having fun. I'm not following any of the prompts, just drawing by my whim for the day.
What I read:
I finished eight books which is better than I was hoping to accomplish. I have a couple thick books coming up, so my overall numbers will probably be lower next week.
What I'm reading:

You had a great week, artistically and reading-wise
Wishing you a great reading week.
Comment #2: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 21:50:00
Thank you. So far this week is proving to be slower both for reading and art making.
Comment #3: Monday, October 21, 2019 at 02:10:28
All the best with the longer books. The art work is again wonderful, love the colours of city lights.

Thank you. I've finished City Lights now. I'm chuffed with how it turned out. I've also decided to rework my schedule to give myself more time to read the longer books.

You did well last week. Eight books is a lot of reading. I'm very curious about Wayward Son. Our next book club read is a Rainbow Rowell, but I've already read it (Fangirl) so I was considering reading this one instead. RR is coming to the Texas Book Festival next weekend, but we are only staying for the first day and she's coming on the second. I'd love to hear her speak.
Your painting is so much fun. I'm tempted to join you, and I really don't paint!
Have a wonderful week.

You should paint. It's fun.
I just finished Wayward Son. I'll post a review of it on Saturday. If you've read Fangirl, you should read Carry On. It's the first book in the Simon Snow series (beyond of course, Fan Girl.

Wow, I feel like a slug after seeing all you did last week. Your art is fabulous! I'm really interested in Wayward Son.
Comment #8: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 22:35:00
I'll be posting a review of Wayward Son on Saturday.

City Lights is beautiful already... would love to see it again when it's done! I've seen several good reviews of The Vanderbeekers and am curious about The Testaments, too. Have a good week!

I just finished City Lights. I'll share the final version on Monday. The Vanderbeekers books are good. I'll be starting The Testaments soon.
Comment #11: Monday, October 21, 2019 at 08:58:06
I loved The Testaments, and I am curious about Wayward Son.
Enjoy your week.
Comment #12: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 22:39:00
Did you read Fan Girl and Carry On? I'll be starting The Testaments later this week.

I am so glad you are enjoying Inktober! What a cool concept. :)
And again, so many of your books look good!

Inktober has been fun this year — mostly because I'm not stressing over the prompts.
Comment #15: Monday, October 21, 2019 at 13:55:59
I like your daily art and really like your new abstract. Great assortment of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #16: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 22:41:00
I've finished the abstract and will share it on Monday.
Comment #17: Monday, October 21, 2019 at 23:18:05
Nice art. I like the quesadilla and the City Lights, which has that streaked nighttime window look, like it's raining or something?
Comment #18: Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 22:48:00
City Lights started out as a fireworks photo but the streaks really do lend themselves to interpretation. I'll be posting the final version on Monday.
