Before we get to new books, let's talk about 2021!
We have a lot of books at this house. And I am literally in the middle of reading at least thirty-five of them. This is ridiculous. So much like when I decided to only read books I was already reading---or the same thing for an entire year--- but this year it's just a matter of ownership. With a couple preplanned exceptions (mostly library books I already have on hold), I'm only starting books I already own. And hopefully finishing even more that I already own.
Wish me luck!
001) The Sun Has Burned My Skin: a modest paraphrase of solomon's song of songs by Adam S. Miller, finished January 3
I bought this a long long time ago, but there are no words on its spine and so it disappeared. I happened across it recently and pulled it down. I thought about giving it to my beloved for Christmas but I wasn't sure she'd go for it. So I read it instead.
I liked it!
I mean---it's a bit slight, but it's not pretending to be anything other than what it is. And what it is is quite lovely. Add it to your lds eros collection.
002) You're a Pal, Snoopy by Charles M. Schulz, finished January 4
Another fine set.
maybe a week
003) Served edited by Theric Jepson, finished January 9
This became the new comic after we finished Snoopy there. The little girl loved it and wants to start again last night. Usually I won't reread comics, but I'll make an exception for this one. If she still wants to. I did leave it with her to look at with her flashlight so she may be over the desire by tomorrow. Time will tell!
Editing fail I noticed: I placed four (four!) stories that end with characters laughing right next to each other. Sheesh, Jepson.
a few days
004) Served edited by Theric Jepson, finished January17
The baby wanted right back into this one, as soon as we'd finished. Which was fine but I didn't expect her to stick with it all the way through! But she did!
It did take us longer this time, but that was largely because she had to keep interrupting to how me her favorite pictures. Nice job, everyone..
a few more days
005) Shem in Zarahemla by Stephen Carter and Jett Atwood, finished January 19
Anyway! It's a brief thing, introducing a couple non-scriptural characters in service of introducing the brief proselyting efforts of one Samuel. But that story will have to wait for another book. And since the shorter books are unnumbered and often are named after invented characters, getting the order right can be tricky.
