liv: Bookshelf labelled: Caution. Hungry bookworm (bookies)
I managed to finish two whole books since last week. A mixture of both being fast to read, and having a bit of extra reading time over the bank holiday weekend.

  1. Ninefox gambit by Yoon Ha Lee ([personal profile] yhlee). (c) 2016 Yoon Ha Lee, Pub Solaris 2016, ISBN 978-1-78108-449-6. I read this because friends were enthusiastic about it, and in hope of voting in the Hugos, and I'm really glad I did because it's great. Disturbing, but great.

  2. Moll Cutpurse Her True History by Ellen Gatford. (c) Ellen Gatford 1984, Pub Stramullion Co-operative Ltd, ISBN 0-907343-03-1.

    This was an afikomen present from my brother, and I picked it up because I was in the mood for something light after NG. Basically it's a book about a cross-dressing criminal and her lesbian lover, based on a historical character from the late sixteenth to early seventeenth century. It's delightfully silly and fun.

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
