Project: Read The Orphan's Tales: In the Night Garden, Catherynne M. Valente
Status: DONE
Notes and Sundry: If it weren't for the week away, I'd possibly still be reading this. That being said, however, it still took me a chunk of the week to do it, so I either didn't read as much as I'd hoped I would, or I had seriously underestimated how much I had left. Ah well. It was a fairly decent read. A bit annoying with the format, and such (stories within stories within stories within............), but yeah. Seemed a little contrived in spots, but meh. *shurgs*



Project: Read Cordelia's Honour, by Lois McMaster Bujold
Next Projected Check-In: Soon?
Share more details? (optional) Well, I'm a bit under the gun, since the discussion on this book begins on August 11th, so we'll see how I do. It hasn't grabbed me just yet, nor has it driven me away entirely, so yeah. It's intriguing, to say the least, and I'm looking forward to the rest of it.

Project: Finish reading Rogue Planet by Greg Bear
Status: Changed!
Notes and Sundry: I only picked Rogue Planet because - while I do, indeed have to finish reading it - my book of choice was not in my possession at the time of my posting. As it has since arrived, and I have been reading it, I make this update:

Name: Kala or Alliana

Project: Short-term: Finish updating my resume and job profiles so I can really dig into job hunting.
Long-term: Go swimming this summer for at least a few minutes a day, at least three days a week. (The point is to get out in the sun and utilize the pools already included in my rent. And get a little exercise.)

By Project or Weekly Check-Ins? Short-term ones will be by project. My long-term one will be by weekly check-ins.
