TSS: Making decisions

Hello everybody, How was your week? My was busy, busy. The weather is gorgeous outside, and yet I spent 4 hours Saturday and Sunday in the lab, working...I'm grateful my experiments are going well, but why can't I make my cells take the week-end off?

Anyway, I'm reading Cain, from Jose Saramago, and I think I will be done soon, but as the end of the book approached and I was looking at my To read list of 2012 I realized I have a bunch of books in my library that should make it into that list too. And then I panicked, I thought about my reading challenge this year, and which books should I choose from the bunch to accomplish this challenge, and how I also wanted to read others, and....long story short, I realize I can't keep a steady "to read" list in a short term. I decided then to just have a "Reading Soon" list, of the books I'm most eager to read. I think I will still make it into my challenge, but I will feel less guilty (guilty with myself, but that's the worst kind) if I read outside of the list.

So that's it for the week (I know, not much, but I'm afraid right now my thesis is taking all priorities)

Have a great week,



  1. My goal
    Is 25 books this year maybe bump it up to 40 next year!

    1. WOW, that's a big jump! I usually add 2 or 3 books to my next year's challenge, depending on how it went the year before.
      Good luck with your challenge!

  2. This is exactly why I don't participate in challenges. They sound fun, but at the same time, I'm such a random reader that I don't want to impose that guilt on myself. Because I would.

    (Sorry you had to work this weekend.)

    1. I don't participate in other people challenges, but I alway have my own challenge of books to read during a year, independent on what I read. That's why I decided to stop having the "to-read" list :).
