I’m just checking in to say thanks for all your messages of luck, I think they’re working!
I did a teeny book haul today, because
why the hell not it’s my birthday tomorrow! I’m having a quiet day, since there’s now under two weeks until my thesis is due. I’m definitely missing reading at my usual pace, as well as being able to blog!
So here are my lovely little bookses. The awesome girl at Dymocks was pretty impressed with my dedication to haulage… and I got a free enviro bag (how did she know I use those things to death?)
Have you guys read any of these?
As for what I’m currently reading, that isn’t thesis related, it’s ‘Z: a novel of Zelda Fitzgerald” by Therese Ann Fowler, which I’m a bit hot and cold on. I normally would have devoured it by now anyway, but just don’t have the time. I’m also reading “Women of the Left Bank” by Shari Benstock, which I meant to just use for a couple of references, but got sucked into reading. I’m still slowly reading “The Virago Book of Ghost Stories”, which is a lot of fun! I haven’t picked it up in a while, since I left it at home (I’ve been at my boyfriend’s for a week) but I fully intend to take a good chunk out of it this weekend.
Here, have a picture of my boything patting the cat with a wooden spoon. This is what the thesis has driven us to. The giant poster of Elvis Costello is not of our doing!
As for the thesis itself, it’s weirdly going well. I’ve always worked well under intense pressure, so now that it’s crunch time I’m whipping it into shape. I’ve had one drama this week, when I realised I’d been working off the wrong draft for a few weeks … cue meltdown… but it’s all fixed and nearly ready to send off to my supervisors (which I should be doing right now… but I’m not. Sorry Matt and Lorraine. I promise to read your books to repay you!)
So I’ll be back in a couple of weeks! In the meantime, I’ll still be having reviews posted; some new and some older. I’m sorry if the older ones aren’t quite right on a time scale/chronology thing, I didn’t get the time to edit them properly before I set them to re-schedule. But they (should) all say Vault at the beginning! Otherwise, they’re new!
Thank you all for your support!
