Just to remind myself of all I should be reading, I decided to take this photo of my most immediate to-be-read pile: books that I have either begun reading recently or need to start reading very, very soon because there are upcoming projects related to them (for instance, I agreed to write about Meja Mwangi for KenyaImagine, warning them that I wouldn't be able to get to it until August, but now August is ... a week away...) I'm reviewing the Nisi Shawl collection for Strange Horizons, and probably later reviewing the Greg Bear novel for them, and I owe SF Site a review of the LeGuin books (I haven't even gotten myself a copy of the second book in the trilogy yet...) Some of the others are for classes I'm teaching in the fall, while assorted others are books that I started reading recently and then had to run away from for a moment to go do something else and haven't had a chance to pick up again. Meanwhile, the mailman just drove up my driveway, which means he's got packages that won't fit in the mailbox.....


  1. I like your mention of "most immediate to-be-read pile." I have at least three TBR piles - one on the bookcase in the corner of our bedroom, one on my dresser, and one on the bookshelf in the family room. And of course, the public library is a TBR pile all in itself.


  3. I have piles like that! The problem is that I seem to keep picking up books that aren't in the piles and reading those instead. I don't know why that happens. Too much temptation around, I suppose.

  4. Matt: I was gonna write and tell you you better get moving on that Drowned Life, but after the last photos you sent, I'm not saying nothin.
