How did your weekend reading go? If you planned on anything specifically, did you read it?

[With apologies for the lack of postings recently.]

I've decided to try to read some of the books I'm culling - I'm about a third of the way through Beyond Belief: excursions among the Islamic converted peoples, by V S Naipaul. I'm not terrifically impressed, though one chapter about the persistence of animism in Muslim Indonesia was very interesting. I'll persist, though, and then dump it.

I planned to read some of The Republic of Thieves but I mostly read twitter.

Probably equal parts comforting and terrifying. I've just adjusted my notification settings which will make it easier to ignore.

Since last report, I have read:

  • The Stepsister Scheme by Jim Hines. This is the story of what happened after the end of Cinderella. I found it a bit hard to understand what was going on at times, and there were too many action scenes for my taste. I can see people who like action-adventure really enjoying this, though.

I'm still going through Othello - haven't had much time to read lately.

I read a bit (but not enough) of work related material, some basic refresher information on working in SAS, and the first 1/3 of a book (possibly titled 'The Watchmaker of Filigree Street'), which I bought at the airport after previously telling myself I wasn't going to read fiction on the plane.

'Tis a very good book and I'm very glad I bought it.

(Today, I tripped over a second hand book store, and now I have 5 *moar* books to fit in my luggage)

I was busy, so I only got about maybe 30 or so pages more in The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
