Obsessing and reading, in that order


What I’m reading this week:

  • Fantasy & Science Fiction Jan/Feb 2012
  • The Eyre Affair. I’m hoping that I’ll start clicking with the principal character, Thursday Next, so that I can go on to read the next 5 novels in the series. So far, I’ve liked Shades of Grey a lot more—I’ve seen rumours of a sequel, but can’t find it anywhere… Fforde has a few other series that I can check out as well.

What I’m obsessing about this week:

  • What’s going to be economical and practical for vegan school lunches for two 11-year-olds and a 15-year-old? Are the other kids going to think they’re weird? Thankfully there are plenty of good resources available on healthy vegan kids, like Vegan For Life.
  • Getting my step-kids settled. Kid #2 arrives tomorrow. The twins start their new school Monday.
