As expected, I didn‘t get a lot of reading done today. I slept for about seven hours. And spent about eight more hours at a birthday party. One and a half hours at a friend‘s place before the party, some time spent looking after my tomatoes and baking bread…
In the end I only managed to read for 3 hours and 30 minutes.
- Paper: Tietjen auf Tour: Warum Camping mich glücklich macht by Bettina Tietjen — This is a pretty amusing book written by a German TV show host, doing a pretty successful night time talk show. It‘s about her life as a camper.
- Audio: Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch #1) by Ann Leckie — this is a re-read. And so far I am not taking in much of the audio. I think I actually have to look up a good plot summary somewhere. I might have to get a print version of this. Maybe a nice box set of the trilogy? The first time around listening to this I was definitely more focussed.
- eBook #2: Widdershins (Whyborne & Griffin #1) by Jordan L. Hawk — I only read about 40 pages so far and and the story hasn‘t quite sparked yet. Pretty slow burn for such a short book (224 pages).
- Graphic novel: Gideon Falls, Vol. 1: The Black Barn (Kindle Edition) by Jeff Lemire — this is developing very nicely. Vaguely creepy, in a very Stephen King sort of way…
And now… good night! I am going to sleep in tomorrow morning and hopefully I will make some more serious progress with my current reads.

I have no idea what reverse readathon is, but Gideon Falls looks super interesting.
And for Ancillary Justice, there are 2 audiobook versions, one from Adjoa Andoh (which Leckie prefers) and one from Celeste Ciulla (which I personally like more). Don’t know which version you’re listening to, but might try switching? Still, nothing beats a beautiful box set with those amazing covers.

I am listening to the version with Andoh. Not on purpose, it’s just what was available to me.
