What I’m Reading Wednesday – Foiled Again Edition

black and white frames on the black and white surface

So I don’t have a list of articles I’ve read in the past week, because I hit my storage limit in Evernote. Yes, I told you this last time. I figured if I waited until a new month began that my monthly storage limit would reset. But it didn’t. And I kept checking daily, and it kept not resetting. So now, I do not have a list of the articles I’ve read this past week. Rest assured, however, I’ve read articles.

There was an article about how T-Rexes might have had lips covering their ferocious maws. I read several articles on Inquiry-based education. Oh, and I don’t know what all else, but I read articles aplenty.

And now I have to find a new way to track the articles I read. Yes, I could do a spreadsheet, but web clipping in Evernote is so much easier. I want something as easy as web clipping in Evernote but without the storage limits. Hopefully I will have settled upon something by next Wednesday. I’ll keep you posted.

I didn’t make much progress in my books, though. Oddly, I just didn’t feel like reading them. Plus, I’m in a very weird holding loop with my public library. I use the Libby app (which is awesome) to manage my electronic book borrowing, and I find that most books I want are not available, so I put them on hold. And then I get them and I can’t finish them in the 2 weeks I’m allotted, so I put them on hold again. In the past week, I’ve had so many books come to me that I had on hold. I can’t read all of those books in 2 weeks, so then I delay their delivery to me, and I am trying to strategically have them delivered. Who else is going through this? What are your strategies?

And then there is Interview with the Vampire. I was halfway through the book when I last was actively reading it. It’s a hefty book, too, so halfway is significant progress.. It’s a really good book. But do I want to finish it? I don’t know. I usually don’t have any problem letting books go. If I’m not into them, I stop reading them, because there are so many other things I want to read. I’m struggling to let Interview with the Vampire go, though. So I’m languishing.

Now back to my regularly scheduling posting.

Each Wednesday, I will post a snapshot of what I’ve read since the previous Wednesday. It will be a collection of books and articles. Please be advised that I pick up and put down books and interests with abandon. You might find I’ve read deeply on a topic for a month or that I’ll pick up a book that I haven’t read in a year and start back right where I left off. I follow my interests in my reading, and that can be wide ranging.

If you are interested in seeing more than a snapshot of what I’m reading, you can check out the link to my Evernote notebook cleverly titled “What I’m Reading.” I don’t always remember to clip internet articles to Evernote (and sometimes it won’t let me). NB – And hopefully we will have a new system next week.

On to the reading for this week.

  • She Builds: The Anti-Hustle Guide to Grow Your Business and Nourish Your Life – Jadah Sellner
  • A Healing Touch: The Power of Prayer – Melanie Hemry
  • Interview with the Vampire – Anne Rice
  • Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You – Elaine N. Aron
  • Dusk of Dragons (Age of the Sorcerers – Book 6) – Morgan Rice (yes, I’ve read books 1-5 and will likely finish this series. That is saying something, because these books end on cliffhangers, and I can’t stand that, but the story is compelling, so I keep coming back for more. I’ve dropped other authors for cliffhangers, so I guess I’m really into it.) – And a note on cliffhangers – My mother-in-law once informed me that cliffhangers are thusly named because some movies back in the day would literally end with someone dangling from a cliff. I had no idea, but I’m better for the knowledge, so I’m passing it along to you.
  • Plus, I read 2 whole books on Monday (I got my reading mojo back), but as I’m not currently reading them, I didn’t include them here. Think small town, white supremacy, romance, and FBI for the first one. Think Highlanders, dragons, and romance for the second. Both books are parts of series. I don’t think I’ll follow the series for the first one, but I really do like dragon books, so I may keep up with the second. It may have a cameo appearance on this list. It’s not my first dragon series and won’t be my last. 🙂
  • If you are interested dragons and elves and assassins and romance and adventure and aliens and werewolves and steampunk and all the things, I recommend Lindsay Buroker to you. She is one of my favorite authors and is extremely prolific. I don’t even have one good starting point for you. She has lots and lots of series. Dive into one and enjoy.

If you’ve read any of these or plan to read them, please leave a comment. I figure most of us could use someone to talk to about what we’re reading.

And lastly, but very importantly, what are you reading?

Enjoy your reading this week!
