forgot to post this yesterday! oh well, it's still technically the weekend here because today's the new canadian holiday. it's kind of a weird thing having a new holiday, like i can recall how i've spent every viola desmond day/family day/nova scotian heritage day because there's only been 3 of them so far and they've all been in my adult life.
anyway, I'm still working on Dune, but there was a power outage during the daytime last weekend so I got pretty deep into it. i'm actually pretty close to being done. i haven't read a long scifi/fantasy novel like this in a LONG time (probably since deathly hallows, which was when i was in high schooll) so i forgot how easy it is to get really into a novel that's paced like this. stuff is constantly happening! it rules. I love the setting, too. i never would have imagined that a desert planet could be so compelling.
ok, so I think i'm going to start asking a weekly question for people who aren't reading anything at the moment or who, like me, are reading the same thing they were reading a week ago: what was your favourite thing you read in 2016? i'll answer in the comments
