2018: The Second Quarter Summary

Word Cloud

I’m pretty far behind getting this posted, as it’s now late August. I finished it in July but just sort of forgot about it, apparently. It’s going on the blog on August 19th. I’ll try to do better at the end of the third quarter…

It was another quarter in which I didn’t finish very many books. There’s no great mystery where my reading time went, though. I have done quite a bit of writing this quarter, and completed a podcast episode almost every week. It seems like we’ve raised the difficulty level on our everyday life, too.

Books Completed

That’s nine books, which is still under my book-a-week target. I almost finished Butcher Bird by Richard Kadrey (I finished it on July 4th, so it’s technically a 3rd-quarter book).

Books in Progress

I’ve been reading these books to the kids at bedtime:

The kids haven’t really been enjoying Order of the Phoenix as it is extremely long and wordy, so we will likely abandon that book. They also didn’t love Peter Pan, so we may give up on that one as well. They do enjoy Norse Myths but we are making slow progress, as we only read one of the chapters occasionally.

Films Watched

TV Shows Watched

We watched the following Doctor Who serials:

We watched the following episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation:

We watched the following episodes of Babylon 5:

We also watched:

On to the third quarter! If all goes well, I will keep up with the weekly posting, and at the end of 2018 I’ll have a post for each week, and a wordy, strange, and wildly uneven journal of the year. I have no idea yet whether I’ll want to try to continue the weekly journal into 2019. It seems like good practice or a good source of raw material for something, even if I don’t know what that thing will be.
