March Books

March pretty much disappeared as a reading and blogging month, thanks to the Hugos and also the election in Northern Ireland. I think it will be a little easier now that those two votes are over. I don’t need to be as discreet about what I am buying or reading (though Hugo finalist write-ups will have to wait until the second half of August). The one book I’m working through from my standard reading lists is Very Long Indeed, which also didn’t help my tally.
