I'm back!

After my month-long hiatus to focus on life, it's good to get back into my reading schedule.  While I was away I re-listened to the Harry Potter books during my commute to work so be prepared for some official reviews on those coming up!  I was rereading the series in advance of the release of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" - have you read it yet??  What were your thoughts?  See my spoiler-free review here.  Once the play has been out a little longer, I am planning on doing a deep dive on my thoughts.

What else have I been up to?

  • Studying!  I am thinking about going back to school and have been studying like a fiend for the standardized entrance exam.  
  • Watching the Olympics of course!  I haven't been able to watch as  much as I'd like with my study schedule, but I've certainly been hitting up the highlights whenever I can.  I think this year there has been more coverage of some of the smaller sports, but perhaps that's just selective memory.
  • Re-reading the archive slice of life webcomic "The Devil's Panties", which is a great couple minute escape when I can't committ to getting into a book.  It's a comic about everyday life, frustrations of moving and lots of great nerd content.  No, it's not what the title sounds like.

Of course since I have been too busy to keep up with reading, I've been spending too much time adding books to the "To Be Read" pile.  My most recent additions are:

What are the books you've been digging into?

Happy Reading!
