Halfway through The Count of Monte Cristo and it’s dragging. I don’t want to give up on it, but I don’t want it to prevent me from getting reading done. It’s been a while since I’ve gone on a s.f. kick, and so this evening, I went to Amazon and bought 4 new books to take me through the rest of the summer:
- City at the Edge of Time by Greg Bear
- The Last Theorem by Arthur C. Clarke and Frederik Pohl
- Marsbound by Joe Haldeman (part of which I read in ANALOG)
- Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
This, plus the reading for the writer’s group should get me through the rest of the summer, up the wedding.
