spindizzy: (Got it!)
OKAY, WE MADE IT. We're finally at the episode that derailed me and my planned schedule for these reaction shots like TWO WEEKS AGO. I need to write this up, write some fic, watch episodes eleven and twelve, and then I can finally go on twitter again. This is Thursday, by the way, I haven't been on my twitter timeline in over 24 hours and I don't know who I am anymore.

THIS EPISODE: THE FIRE NATION ATTACK.

spindizzy: She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain. (Book turned brain)
Okay, guys, help. I'm trying to pick out my reading goal for next year, and it's proving DIFFICULT.

  • According to GoodReads, I read 178 books this year (actual number may fluctuate because not everything I read is GoodReads), which is a bit higher than my goal of 150?

  • (I hit 150 in August, and then pretty much aggressively slacked off for the rest of the year because I was so behind on Eight Book Minimum. TAKE NOTES AS YOU READ, KIDS, BE BETTER THAN YOUR DISREPUTABLE AUNTIE SUSAN.)

  • If I am committing to Eight Book Minimum again, which was fun when it wasn't a bin fire of me being bad at regular posts and was a good way to cover books that I wasn't going to talk about in depth ever, that translates to... Okay, basic maths says it's about 208? Round it to 210 because I dislike unrounded numbers. That would be a CHALLENGE, but it would probably be doable?
    • Q: Oh my god Susan ARE YOU HIGH
      A: HAVE YOU SEEN HOW MANY COMICS I READ

    • ... I might be high, that still sounds like a lot of books

  • Part of my problem is that I wanted to up my challenge rating by having at least a third of what I read be prose for a change. No restrictions on fiction or non-fiction, just... Definitely has to be prose. That's not a terrible goal, right?

  • (Q: Susan, how do you think you're going to manage this?
    A: I have all of Pluto to read on New Year's Day, and I'm going to reread literally all of the Skip Beat omnibi before I read the one that comes out in January. That's twenty books right there. ... Also I need to read all of my library books that I've been ignoring, oops. That's like forty prose books right there, so.)

  • So, my options: I could keep the same overall goal (150), and count the level-up as having more prose? I could just go for 210 books and let anarchy reign? I could go for 210 and make 70 of them prose? I take one and have the other as a stretch goal? I DON'T KNOW.
