HAHA I know, I’m trying to cut down on books, why would I be collecting them? Well, part of cutting down the number is because I want to be more intentional about the books I collect and hold onto. I want to complete some series I’d started accumulating, and some collections based on author, but…… Continue reading I’m Starting Book Collections
January was the longest year of my life, but February only took what, a week? Bleh. I’m finally feeling better after the great allergic reaction of December 2017. I’ve gotten furniture built in my apartment, so I had space to get out a lot of my books and plushies! It’s not everything yet, some of…… Continue reading Update: March!
I’m back on the Star Trek posts at Comparative Geeks, with a reflection last month and a post on movie commentaries today! I’ve gotta actually watch more TNG soon and get some more posting material, I know… I’ve been sick-slash-injured for most of December and January (moral of the story: if you have severe allergies,…… Continue reading Update: February!
Every year, I like to keep track of representation in the books I read. This mainly serves to draw diverse books to my attention, although of course I try to get my percentages up every year too, especially for the books by and about women. (I’m more interested in good representation in the other categories, looking for…… Continue reading 2017 Book Diversity and Challenge Recap
Happy holidays to all those who are celebrating this time of year! No post on Tuesday due to Christmas. After that, it’s my favorite time of the year — book surveys and challenge roundups!
No Trek post this month, Comparative Geeks is on a hiatus, but Trek shall return! This past month I’ve really been focused on apartment stuff, and yet somehow I’ve gotten behind on it at the same time? I still have so many things to clean and organize, not to mention furniture to assemble and more…… Continue reading Update: December!
No posts this week due to the holiday. Have an excellent weekend, whether you celebrate or not, and don’t forget there was another massive oil spill in the US last week. It’s relevant.
So back in May, Jamie from the Perpetual Page-Turner did a post called “Currently…”, in the style of those Facebook and blog circulars that ask you what you’re doing currently in various categories. It wasn’t really a tag, but I’m shamelessly stealing it because it’s great and once I start reading these things I can’t…… Continue reading Currently… (tag)
This month’s Star Trek post is a roundup of Trek/comic book crossovers. Some of them are odd, one is amazing. Check it out! I moved a couple weeks ago, from a horrible student apartment into a real grown-up apartment, so that’s been taking up most of my energy. Getting everything moved, cleaning both places, getting utilities set…… Continue reading Update: November!
This month’s Star Trek post is basically about how the structure of the show lends itself to Kirk/Spock shipping, with particular attention to the famously shippy licensed novel Killing Time. It’s probably the best Trek post I’ve done in a while, if I do say so myself. But it’s certainly the topic that has interested me most, so…… Continue reading Update: October!
