Time for reading, much less writing reviews, is in short supply for me right now. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, my company was not only deemed essential, we also had to ramp production, as several of the parts we make go into medical equipment like respirators and ventilators. I’m working from home as much as I can, but with a slow internet connection thanks to my rural location, it takes so much longer to maintain, much less exceed, my previous productivity. Which means longer hours spent working. Add a not-so-fun water leak in the house that required tearing walls open, and it’s very frustrating. Still, I can’t imagine how much worse it must be for those who have lost jobs or loved ones…to those who have, I’m truly sorry for your loss.
Today I finally completed reading For the Killing of Kings by Howard Andrew Jones. The Pages Read total for the year is 3883 (32% of goal). Next up is the last book in The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy, Assassin’s Fate by Robin Hobb. I’ve fallen a bit behind goal, but if I can complete Assassin’s Fate by the end of May, I’ll be back on track.
I’ll start working on a post for the 2019 Hippogriff Awards soon. I’ve been working sporadically on a review for The Gutter Prayer, so hopefully I can wrap that up by next weekend.
