#bookreport and #weeklyforecast can both be summed up with: more Nebula reading!

I finished the novelettes and one novella, Mammoth at the Gates, and I'm about 40% into both another novella and one of the novels. This week I want to finish the novellas and the novel I've started, and at least start another, ideally finish it too. But we'll see.

It's here! I'm loving my new kobo! (elipsa 2e) My other one was old enough that this has a much better screen and lighting. Being able to adjust the temperature of the light is so cool.
I haven't tested out all the features yet, but so far it's great. The stylus works fine with my left-handedness, except for highlighting (it only seems to work left to right, and I highlight right to left) which isn't a big deal as I rarely highlight things anyway.

#bookreport A good week! Finished The Phoenix Crown on audio, which I quite enjoyed. Finished The Mimicking of Known Successes a few hours before the Nebula finalists were announced, handy as it's on the list!
So now I'm in Nebula reading mode for the next few weeks. So far I've finished the short stories and 2 novelettes. #weeklyforecast hope to finish the novelettes (4 left) and ideally the novellas (3 left) but we'll see.

TheSpineView Great job! 1mo

Whomp whomp. This is how my kobo has looked since Thursday. It is not, in fact, connected or charging, as you might be able to tell by, y'know, the lack of plug... Right when I downloaded a bunch of new things cause the Nebula finalists were announced, too. On the bright side, a shiny new toy (kobo elipsa 2e) is on its way to me and I'm excited to test it out!

llwheeler I should add, I've had this ereader for many years, and no complaints 1mo
julesG Manual reset didn't work? I only have kindle, but if it shows something like this pressing down the On button for about 30 seconds normally triggers a restart. Maybe this works with kobo too. 1mo
Crazeedi Funny my k8ndle doesn't seem to be charging either, oh my I may have to break down and get a new one... 1mo

llwheeler @julesG that is how to manually reset for kobo too, and I've done it before, but it's not working in this case 🤷‍♀️ 1mo

Fault Lines | Emily Itami

#bookreport
Aside from The Good Soldier, which I'm just glad I'm done, I had a fab reading week! Loved Jeeves on audio; Wild Seed was excellent; and Fault Lines was exactly the book I was in the mood for, and excellent. Loved it.
As for current reads, so far both are good, if not *quite* living up to the (very high) expectations I had.

#weeklyforecast I'll finish those two and then Nebula nominations should be announced this week!

#bookreport
Loved Sabriel on audio. Tim Curry narrating!

#weeklyforecast
The Good Soldier is on #serialreader so I know I'll finish it (can't say I'm enjoying, but yay for another #1001books down)
I'm loving Fault Lines so far, so I'm sure I'll finish it, then probably go back to Wild Seed, which I'm also enjoying
For audio, I'll finish Jeeves and start The Phoenix Crown - highly anticipated so 🤞 it lives up to my hopes

emz711 Wait. Sabriel narrated by Tim Curry? Like the fantasy book? 1mo
llwheeler @emz711 yep! He was great, and I'm glad I finally got around to reading (listening to) it! 1mo

Yay #BookSpin day! I went with my Libby wishlist filtered to available now, and got The Inimitable Jeeves and Fault Lines. Great timing for the audiobook cause I just finished my previous one yesterday. And I was really looking forward to Fault Lines. I'm already 25% and 10% into them respectively since taking the screenshot this morning, and really enjoying both!

Thanks @TheAromaofBooks 🙂

Two weeks of #bookreport but not much to show. I'm making steady progress on audio, but reading with my eyes has been slow going. That's ok.

#bookreport another scattered week. On audio I finished Treasure Island (#1001books enjoyed more than I expected) and started Ace (enjoying as expected!)
But for ebooks... I finished a #roll100, read a bit more of my #BookSpin, started a new #1001books, and then my hold on the tagged came in so I started that.

For #weeklyforecast who knows... I have my next audio lined up, that's all.

Apologies for the terrible lighting...

#bookreport a good week, not what I forecast though! I finished Girl Waits with Gun, and started back on Wharton when my hold on A Power Unbound came through, like 8 weeks earlier than expected. So of course, I dropped everything for that--really enjoyed that trilogy.

#weeklyforecast back to Wharton, and maybe a #BookSpin or #roll100 pick

#bookreport A good week, finished 4! Picked Girl Waits with Gun back up as I'm trying to work through the way too many books I have hibernating. And started My Man Jeeves on audio which is a bit disappointing so far, two of the stories at least were also in Carry On Jeeves.

#weeklyforecast finish Jeeves and continue with Wharton's Old New York, hopefully finish both the 60s and 70s. I doubt I'll finish Girl but you never know.

Finished Persephone in Bloom and loved it! Had a blast spotting all the myth references. I'm currently reading and loving A Restless Truth and Carry On, Jeeves and should finish both soon. Next ebook will be a sci-fi novella, An Unnatural Life. Next audio... Not sure!

I'm all set for another round of #BookSpin and #roll100! My #roll100 list is my entire ebook tbr (sitting at slightly over 100 now) and for Jan my #BookSpin list is just 1-20 of my #roll100.

I've been looking forward to it for ages!

I feel like this one landed oddly for me. I think I'd have preferred it either pared right back to a short story, or else fleshed out and all the themes and threads elaborated into a novel. But still an interesting read.

So I finished the tagged short story collection a few days ago (July #BookSpin!) and really enjoyed it, best ss collection I've read in a while. Literary but genre-blurring. But I guess I *really* liked it cause last night I dreamt I found a Kim Fu book that I hadn't read yet and was so happy. Haha thanks, subconscious. Now I have her only backlist that I haven't read on my Libby wishlist.

#roll100 2022 wrap up! I read at least one pick 10 months, and all picks 5 months. I'm calling that pretty good!
My 2023 list is still my ebook tbr, but thanks mostly to #roll100 it now only goes to 92! And of course one of Jan's numbers was higher... So I decided 92-100 are freebies (unless/until I acquire more books) and I can fill it with any ebook tbr read. First up for this year, some sci-fi. Looking forward to it!

#fourfoursin22 canonical - a classic @Lauredhel
#roll100 - April and May

My #roll100 list is my kobo ebook tbr, but when I started the copy of this I had, I realized pretty quickly it was abridged. So, deleted that one and got a copy from the library instead. Either way, another one off the tbr! Can't say it's one of my favourite classics, but parts were interesting.

Graywacke Cool and kudos. Not a classic i see people actually reading all that often. 2y
llwheeler @Graywacke I can see that. I found it got a bit repetitive, each new place he discovered sort of followed the same formula. And I also felt a lot of satire was probably going over my head cause I lacked his social context (I didn't bother to do any supplementary reading or research) 2y
