What I’m Reading Now. . .

Want ads. Writing jobs, specifically. Yep, like many other hopefuls, I am attempting to make an income via freelance writing. It’s been an illuminating experience so far and I am learning every day.

Other than that, I am reading Shaded Vision by Yasmine Galenorn. I’m addicted to the series. I can’t help it. Set in the Pacific Northwest with Fae, shapeshifters, demons and magic of all sorts (including a kitsune, for crying out loud! :D) it sometimes feels like she is writing these stories just for my benefit.

Krampus, the Yule Lord is also being read, albeit slowly. Some things take precedence. Such as Calculated in Death, which I tore through at an achingly slow pace. It took me an entire week to read it. I tried to make it last so I would get my fill. No such luck. I immediately was craving the next one. I can’t wait until the holiday season!

My reading list is extensive this time, as I knew it would be. After I switched to Portland State, I chose three classes that all seemed to tie together for my first semester of work: Ancient Greece, Ancient Greek Literature, and History of the Ancient Near East and Egypt. I currently have four texts on my desk that I have yet to crack open, four more I will be referencing solely online, and I am currently reading: The Iliad, The Odyssey, Ancient Greece, Ancient Near Eastern History and Culture, and The Ancient Near East. So, with that said, I’m going back to work, I mean, reading. πŸ™‚

As part of the required reading for one of my classes, I read Stone Butch Blues. I was immediately glad that I had purchased this book (half my books I’ve borrowed from the library this term; late fees are cheaper than buying them in many cases). I urge you to read this book. I believe that most people can learn something from it about themselves or about the world at large. 10-4-2-2012

I just finished Ursula K. Le Guin’s Tombs of Atuan. It had been so long since I read the book that I had actually forgotten that I had read it. Then again, I do read a lot, so that could have something to do with it, as well.

I know I have never read the collection β€œThe Birthday of the World” also by Ms. Le Guin, but I am thoroughly enjoying doing so now. It is nothing short of inspiring to me, and I count it as time well spent. I have yet to complete the second story in the collection, but already have been inspired to write about the changes it is helping me make.
