Off early today

We get to leave early from the dayjob today, and tomorrow we are closed. So excited! I have been craving time off, time to myself, even though I don't seem to be using most of that time for writing. I seem to be using it for doing very little. Reading, looking at things, desultory chores. I guess my brain needs a rest.

I've been reading a mixture of galleys for previews, fanfiction, and samples of YA as I look for the jewels that I want to read in their entirety. I read a romance novel, in paperback rather than on my Kindle, over the weekend. My nonfiction reading has mostly been before I go to sleep at night - I have several books in progress, Black Victorians, Black Victoriana and After the Ice: A Global Human History 20,000-5000 BC. I'm also craving re-reads.

I still haven't decided which days I will take off from the dayjob for a reading vacation, but that would likely be aimed at reading hardcovers that are piled up in my TBR. Soon, I think. Maybe after Readercon.
