I've actually decided that I need to do more to catch up my unfinished series than just a ten day stint in September. I'm thinking about setting aside ten days every month to catch up on series as I have so many to attend to. Getting through one big series a year is not enough when I have so many to read. Last year it took the whole year to get the Morganville Vampires read and I'm going into August with another 7 still to read in the Kitty Norville series. Some series I have a book or two to get up to date like Kevin Hearne and Patricia Briggs but others have up to 16 books to catch up with and I need to be getting through them much quicker. I might also try and fit in two nights per ten days catching up with films and tv series connected to my chosen theme but that's not definite yet.
For those who were interested in Neo-Jurassic by Carolyn McCray which I recently reviewed, you might remember that I was unsure about downloading the boxsets of her work as people on Amazon claimed the set they received a couple of years ago was incomplete. Well I took the plunge and bought the Neo Jurassic set which is called 'Our Future Our Fault' and her 'Apex Predator' series which features her shark books and am pleased to report that all the books are there and any glitches must have been ironed out. I'm pleased because I loved Salechii, the first shark novel which I just read a few days ago and look forward to the others.
The furniture in my bedroom is fully sorted! My new bookcase is filling nicely with a fantasy top shelf, a SF and adventure second shelf and an Indiehorror shelf. I'm pleased with how everything looks and my final task is to rearrange 3 more bookcases, putting everything on them into genre and filling a bag of unwanted for the charity shop. I'll have shelves for non fiction, non fiction political, Tudor fiction, mass market paperbacks, non fiction mountain expeditions, urban fantasy and so on. I already have one bookcase sorted for zombies and apocalypses! The work in progress will be done soon and my reading nook will be ready for autumn and those rainy and cold nights to come!
