jazzfish: a black-haired man with a big sword. blood stains the snow behind (Eddard Stark)

Thirty boxes of games. I mean, technically twenty-seven, but three of those are overlong boxes, and there's some odds and ends that didn't make it into a box yet. Like Gram's Mahjongg set which doesn't easily fit into anything. Speaking of, I'd ought to take the go set as well.

Expect I could cull it down to two bookcases worth of games. Likely worth doing.

Plan is to take four bookcases with me; if two are games, that leaves two for books. Which means I need to figure out which books come with me and which get to live in boxes for the foreseeable.

The last of Martha Wells's Raksura books should be here on Wednesday, and I'll take that north with me for next week. Other than that, probably some comfort reading. The complete Mike Ford certainly, maybe Freedom & Necessity (s'what I read after Kelly dumped me), hell, maybe it's time to carry on with that full Dragaera reread I've been threatening for awhile. If I had early Misty Lackey books (specifically Arrows and Herald-Mage) I'd read those, they're the kind of displaced trauma I'm looking for. Maybe something by eBear. Etc.

Anyway, books are tomorrow's problem.

I picked up the Arrows omnibus edition a few months ago, actually. Just been waiting for a time when I have a free day or three to actually dig into it.

I'll never declare Lackey to be a great, or even good, writer - and, cripes, her conclusion-writing ability is just terrible - but when I'm looking for something that's the literary equivalent of junk food (and you always need some junk food in your life) she's exactly who I go to. Her Elemental Masters books have long been 'vacation' novels for me, haha.

I just read my first Martha Wells on Monday - All Systems Red. I was impressed by both her and her editor not dragging out a novella-sized story with unnecessary filler.

I received Murderbot as a dead-tree edition for my birthday and consumed it as a brain break in one sitting. Yum. I will have to check out her other stuff.

I'm interested to know if it's just me: despite being told that Murderbot was an "it," did you read the Murderbot as a female character?

Yeah, maybe that's it. I thought it was the mental description style added to the social anxiety. I'll have to re-read it and note where the adjective tells are.

Yeah. That sounds about right.
