Okay, so it looks like I super failed at reading and obviously had a huge win when it comes to acquiring stuff. Yay, ALA! To be fair, I had a two-week intensive class that required a lot of reading, so that took up my pleasure reading time while still being pretty pleasurable (hello, Buffy/Walking Dead/City of Bones/Jackie Robinson). But now that that’s over, I am thisclose to being finished with all of grad school, which is cray. Only my independent study stands between me and two Master’s degrees.

So that means from now on, I should be far, far better at reading, because all will be pleasure reading. Like, when nice people give me ARCs at conferences now, I’ll be able to read them in a more timely manner than two years later. So excited.

But until then, I am still at ALA and thoroughly enjoying myself, so I’m done here.
