Reading Day

Plan for today — oh, I am torn between reading and writing. I think mostly reading, though — I want to finalize my syllabi, which means reading through a bunch of short stories to see if I want to switch any out for the ones already listed. And I may HAVE to finish reading Charlie Jane’s novel first, or the frustration will swallow me whole. These characters I already love are in dire straits, and about to be more so.

(One of the things I particularly like about this book is that when terrible things happen to people, they have to deal with the emotional / mental consequences of that for the rest of the book. It’s not just skipped over.)

At 10 a.m. I’m being interviewed here at the house by a local paper, though, and they’re bringing a photographer, so probably the day will actually start with a quick straightening-up pass. Although I’m not even going to try to address the stacks of books and papers everywhere. Children’s toys can be tossed in a storage bin, though.
