I’ve been gathering books (with some help from my school’s book sale, where I’ve found some good titles at $0.50/each) for Dewey’s Read-A-Thon.
The plan is to start with these:
I also have a DI Marjory Fleming mystery on tap on the Kindle. Since I have class in the morning, I plan to read that on the bus. I really enjoy Aline Templeton’s books; she writes well, but they’re still very relaxing reads.
I have no idea how much of this snowbank-o-books I’ll make it through, but the idea is to enjoy it rather than to kill myself (kind of like the bike ride I took this evening!).
In other news, general updates:
Monday’s ballet class was a mixed bag — my core was more together, my turns were in some cases pretty good — but my head wasn’t entirely in the game the whole way. I think it was a function of not having slept well at all for a few nights in a row, so I’m hoping to be much better after a good, solid rest tonight. I got “Use your technique; don’t lose your technique,” a couple of times on Monday; while that implies that maybe there’s some technique in here somewhere after all (ha!), I’m hoping I’ll hear a bit less of that. I do get overenthusiastic in the turns, though, sometimes.
Today was the Student Conference (undergraduate edition), and I think it went quite well. Bringing my poster to school (and back) was interesting, as we didn’t have a sufficiently-sized poster tube and I didn’t have time to get one.
I am super, super tired at this point, so I’ll probably turn in pretty soon so I can get a good night’s rest in before class tomorrow.
