Summer Reads 5 & 6

I happen to be coming along with Zita at the time when the story's all wrapped up. Makes me sad there's only one left and that it's on the way to the house. Any day now. 

Legends of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
But while I wait for the last Zita to arrive, I've got other books by Catholics (Hatke is a Chestertonian) to be reading:

Letters to a Diminished Church by Dorothy Sayers

Interesting stuff. Poorly edited stuff, too--get a better edition than I did, if at all possible. Sometimes I like Catholic thinking to round out my Orthodox thinking, so this should be good. 

Keep reading, loves.

Summer Reads 4

So I finished a book, but not the one I set out to read.

Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Yeah, I read a children's graphic novel instead of This is Your Brain on Music. I'm still slogging through it, but it's tough reading. You just have to have something lighthearted to mix in with the physics of music. Plus, technically This is Your Brain on Music is for work and not pleasure.

Now it's going to be a day of Despicable Me, "Sailor Moon Crystal", "Knights of Sidonia", and "Attack on Titan". And pizza. Reading is taking a backseat.

Finally, Someone Besides Me Talks About Childlessness

Totally agree with the fear of passing on genetic diseases.

Anyway, I'm up watching "Attack on Titan" and generally dorking about. Now I'm watching videos by someone who I wasn't aware of before today who has a bunch of psychological disorders. I'm naturally drawn to those people.
