Reading inbox-outbox: Week of 3 August

I may be slipping into a bit of a reading slump… I’ve tried reading several books this week, but just can’t get into any of them.

Inbox (books acquired)

  • No new books… two weeks in a row! That must be some sort of record for me…

Outbox (books finished)

  • Promethea Book 1 by Alan Moore, J. H. Williams III, Mick Gray, Charles Vess — My brother-in-law let me borrow this from his treasured comic book collection. It’s one of his favorites and he thought that I might also enjoy it. He was right. I think this may be one of the most creative origin stories I’ve seen for a super hero. I really like it.

Queue (what I’m reading next)

  • Last week, when I put together my August TBR, I was totally excited to read all those books… and now, this week, nothing on that list is sounding all that interesting to me…
  • I’m going to give Mistborn one more try — it was a little too “high fantasy” for me when I tried to start it earlier this week…
  • If that doesn’t work, I’ll try The Harvest… and if that doesn’t work, I’ll try Reamde
  • And if all those fail, I’ll throw away my August TBR and just grab the first book that looks good to me right now.

Not a terribly productive or interesting reading week for me… Here’s hoping that next week is better…
