This year, I’ve accomplished a lot of knitting in lieu of blogging and also in lieu of reading for pleasure. I’m hoping to rectify that last one this month. I went through my husband’s Nook account, and there are a few titles I’ve downloaded onto my reader: The Martian by Andy Weir, Redshirts and Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. These are science fiction, a realm I love to read. The last time I went on a sci-fi binge like this was roughly five years ago when I discovered Joe Haldeman.
