Featuring quarterly goals, funny tv, and leaning out
I also recently finished "Several People Are Typing" and loved it! If you're looking for atypical narrative structures, I recommend "Interior Chinatown" by Charles Yu. It's a novel written like a screenplay, and although it tackles serious topics like racial discrimination in the entertainment industry, it's also darkly funny.
That reading journal is such a great idea! I just ordered it for my bookworm daughter. Congrats again on the lists!
"For example, if your goal is to bake 24 different pies this year then you should try to knock 6 out in the first quarter. Also, if you need someone to take one of the pies off your hands, let me know." That's a lot of pie!
I look forward to those posts!
I loved the humor challenge. Thx for hosting and sharing the various tools for a good joke.
Quarterly! I’m doing the exact same thing this year. By end of the year, when I often review, it’s too late.
Congrats on the top 10 lists!
I remember South Park doing a skit at one point where the recurring punch line was Cartman saying, "Women are funny, too, bro!" as a dig at Hitchens. Also, to paraphrase, I once read a devastating critique about Hitchens that went something like: "Nobody has ever written more beautifully while also being wrong about absolutely everything." Hopefully it was written by a woman. :-)
Hi Julie! Thanks for all the great recs! I'm excited to read Talia's book and that Bingo card really hits home : ) Congratulations on the lists! So well deserved!
