September: staying current.
I'm caught up in that cyclical thing where I start thinking I need to get a grip -- that I have way too many books in my house and that I'm never going to get them all read and it gets a little overwhelming -- almost like being caught up in a whirlpool. After thinking about it, it seems like a good plan to try to keep up with what's coming in the door -- so this month I'm going to try to stay on top of every book that comes here in September -- either in the mail, delivered by UPS (the delivery guy absolutely hates me) or from visits to the bookstore. I'm starting to get a number of ARCs again, some unsolicited, so we'll see how long my good intentions last.
First up: Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent -- I just got a pre-release copy from Hachette, not 5 minutes ago! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!
