The Less Good:
In all honesty, I can’t even call these mediocre, because they weren’t. They just weren’t as good as the rest of the books I read this month. Which is a fantastic problem to have!
Harrigan – 3 Stars
Sabbat Martyr – 3 Stars
Princeps’ Fury – 5 Stars
Gulag Archipelago – 4 Stars
Karas left me reeling like an amnesiac drunk in a hurricane. I simply had no clue what was going on in that anime and had to wonder why I ever picked it up back in the day. Not a good experience.
Once again, I’ll just bullet point these if you happened to miss any during the month.
- Quotes from Gulag Archipelago #4 & #5
- Word Count, Here I Come!
- How to Switch Back to the Classic Editor
- Real Neat Blog Award
- “Would You Rather” Tag
- #6Degrees – Normal People to …..
- A Brief Introduction to: Dr. Lord Bookstooge
- What My Favorite Characters Would be Doing in Quarantine
Summer is here. Which means it has been getting into the 90’s. All I can say is thank goodness for central air and air conditioning!
Church is back open but I’d estimate about half the people aren’t comfortable coming back yet and so have still been watching on facebook livestream.
Our bluray player got stuck in an on/off cycle that put the kibosh on using it. Thankfully, it was cheap enough to pick up another one at Target, so my anime watching plans didn’t go off the rails.
WordPress has pulled back from forcing everyone to switch to the new block editor until at least 2021. I remain pessimistic though 😦
Plans for Next Month:
Hoping to take a vacation at the end of July, beginning of August, so not exactly sure how that will impact the blog. Probably hardly at all for July. I suspect August will be where things might get off the rails. Or I end up doing such an excellent job of scheduling things that nobody ever notices. But who believes in best case scenarios?
I am planning on making Sundays all about anime that I really hope turn out better than Karas. If it works out well for me, I might try to do more in future months. Problem is, anime series are just that, series. Consisting of 6-26 episodes, they are much more of a time commitment than a single movie. So I guess July will be another experiment on my part. If it ends up impinging on my reading time, then forget about it. But if I can fit it in where I would normally watch amazon prime or something, then sure.
See you all tomorrow!
