I want to read more books this year so I thought I would make a list of things to read during the rest of this year.

Under the Dome by Stephen King (currently reading)
Anasi Boys by Neil Gaiman
Desperation by Stephen King
The Shinging by Stephen King
Cell by Stephen King
Misery by Stephen King
Pyramid by Terry Pratchett
Soul Music by Terry Pratchett
The Graveyard Book by Terry Pratchett
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling (coming out later this year)

I figure for the rest of this year, that's enough books on the list. Especially since the fall semester will be starting for me and MacKenzi in about a month or so.

Got my teeth cleaned today. I don't like the process, but I do like the feeling of my teeth afterward.

Anyway, with the end of the semester, I've been thinking about some things. I'm going to fail my math class. There's nothing I can do about that. I should have done more, but I didn't. Anything I do now will be too little too late. I need to change something if I'm going to do well next semester, and I have to do better next semester otherwise I won't get into LSUA which means it will be even longer until MacKenzi and I are together.

Wow. I honestly hadn't expected that to happen, although if I feel that if I had been paying more attention I might have pieced together more than I did. It will be interesting one day to read this book again and pick up on all sorts of things that I missed before or that didn't make sense before.

I think I'm still processing everything. I may do a better write up eventually. For now, though, I'm moving on to Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness. I've read good things about it so I'm hoping it will live up to the reviews.

I love this man. I'm still reading American Gods and I encountered a casual mention of bisexuality. I actually had to do a double take it was that nonchalant. An older sister is talking to her younger sister who mentions meeting a cute boy while hitching hiking and she says half-jokingly, "After the bitch-from-hell maybe I'm ready to give boys another shot." The sisters continue bickering over the younger sister's habit of hitch hiking as if that line (revealing she's bisexual or at least bi-curious) never happened.

Also, is it sad that I thought "wow, there's a lot of GLBT characters in this", despite the fact there have only been two? It's kind of sad when two (minor) GLBT characters counts as "a lot."

However, back to my original point: I love you, Neil Gaiman.

I'm loving this book. It's now one of my favorites. I'll post something more coherent later covering more of my reasoning for placing this book in my top favorites. Because there's a lot of reasons, and not all of them are things I can explain. Maybe I'll write it up after I finish the book.
