February ’17 Roundup & Ramblings

02feb17

 

Ok, February was a MUCH better month than January. Not quite as many books,  as I clocked in at 16,  but the quality was significantly higher. It felt like I had more 5star reads this month than I had in the whole of last year. One hand that was a great feeling, to read one book after another that I just loved. On the other hand, it kind of made the couple of middle of the road books really pale. I like my mediocre reads to be “comfortably mediocre”.

My top 3 books for the month were probably:

  1. Gardens of the Moon
  2. Dune
  3. Dealing with Dragons

 

Posting twice a day for the last couple of days was an experiment on my part to test a couple of things. One thing I learned, I can’t keep that kind of pace. I’m struggling to write this post, as I’m pretty much “worded out”. Another thing is that it did not affect my traffic stats. Which was kind of reassuring actually, as it means I’m part of people’s routine and not something they’re reacting to.

I’ve recently gotten a hold of a bunch of comics, Spiderman 2099 to be precise and they are a literal blast from my past. So I do plan on interjecting issues here and there throughout March. Prepare yourselves for bucketloads of nostalgia and probably a bit of whining from me as reality intrudes onto my memories.

    Yikes. Two posts a day, no way I could run that without a full burnout. Even for a short time.

  4. ‘Dealing with Dragons’ will be on my Kindle in 3..2..1. got it!

    Posting twice a day.. I think I couldn’t even do it if I was a ‘Full-Time Blogger’ 😀 Right now, I am happy if I can post 2-3 times a week. I’d like to more often, but I just don’t have the time.

  5. Sticking to a schedule can be efficient, indeed, and it sets a pace of sorts, but selling yourself into indentured slavery could take all the fun out of blogging! So welcome back into the land of the easy! 😀

  7. Twice a day sounds really heavy on the psyche. I most certainly would never be able to maintain such a rhythm. Spider-Man 2099 comics look freaking awesome though. The design of that costume has always been one of my favourites. It’s just makes my inner-kid squeal in joy. 😀 Hope you enjoy your books in March!

    I know what you mean about being worded out. I sometimes try to schedule posts ahead of time, but by the time I get to the third or fourth one, I’m uselessly repetitive. I loved Dwd and am looking forward to starting GotM… eventually.
