The Books: So, here’s the thing: in what was supposed to be my last week of free reading time before my PhD starts on Monday (Eek!) I didn’t get any reading done. Last week, Thursday morning unexpectedly found me packing for a surprise visit to Disneyland (we still had free access from last year’s visit). In the past week I did manage to finish reading Painter of Silence but apart from that it has been eerily silent on the reading front.
I started Alif the Unseen a few days ago, but unfortunately it is not leaving me with a “must read everything NOW” feeling as much as I’d hoped. Then again my mind has been fairly preoccupied with last minute details that needed to be made in order before Monday [Have I mentioned that I'm nervous?]
I’m also hopelessly behind on my reading for the buddy read of Cloud Atlas that I’m doing together with Amy, Jessica, and Heather. I’m supposed to lead the discussion this Monday, so I’d better hurry up and finish reading sections 3 & 4 (last Monday) and 5 & 6 (upcoming Monday)! Gah, guess I still have a weekend of free reading time to look forward to.
The tea: I’m drinking mostly camomile tea as one of my wisdom teeth has decided to choose this moment to cause me excruciating pain by finally appearing. Yay. *sigh* Not that I do not like camomile tea. I love almost any type of tea, except perhaps for Lapsang Souchong or liquorice tea.
