Currently Reading
This is what’s currently haunting my bedside cabinet, the little table in the bathroom, my bag, or my Kindle.

As I can’t get any of the widgets from GoodReads to work, just go straight to my Currently Reading shelf instead.

Currently Drafting
Those pesky posts that are lurking in my Blogger Dashboard just waiting for me to finish them once and for all so they can be posted and not just sit there and lurk.

  • Forest for the Trees, the: An Editor’s Advice to Writers by Betsy Lerner
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling (book) (R) (Might save it until I’ve re-read the whole series from the start and do them in order instead)
  • Watchmen (graphic novel)

Waiting for me to get around to reviewing them
A reminder of things I should write something about, in case I ever run out of ideas. Although, generally, I tend to have ideas enough so that these get sort of put on the back-burner a lot. Until I either decide I won’t write about them, or I decide I want to and then realise I don’t remember anything and have to then wait until I’ve seen/read them again.
