Work has gotten completely overwhelming so I haven't been up to much reading for fun the past couple of weeks.
I only got a couple of reviews up last week
I plan to finish Packing for Mars this week. I have to admit that I have been rather stalled on this book - thinking too much about the nitty-gritty of the early space program is rather depressing me, since I used to dream of being an astronaut.
I have also joined 2014 Classic YA/MG Challenge so I am re-reading Anne of Green Gables. I am getting to one of the bits that is really sad, so I have stalled here too - but I need to finish the book for the April 25th discussion.
Finally - I have been reading No Place for a Lady about women explorers/travelers in the 1800's - "those ladies who will travel where they have no business to travel, who will wear costumes which they have no business (in those latitudes) to wear; who will go 'unprotected;' who will choose their dragoman by physiognomy, as romance suggests, and not by advice of friends, as common sense would dictate." pg 7-8.
You can see a bit of the book in A peak into No Place for a Lady and my Wondrous Words Wednesday 11 post last week.
