First things first - was on Reddit, in r/books earlier today, when I came across this handy guide to the most interesting books that have been published this year.  As a frugal person above all else(at least, when it comes to books), it's good to know what the important pieces are, so that when I see them heavily discounted I won't brush past them as I look through the slush.   Above you should be able to see a selection of just some of the stuff in the first half of this year's list that I've found interesting enough to keep an eye out for, myself.


Besides that, I feel as though I've been neglecting my reading and reviewing, due to heavy, end-of-the-year school work, but although I will not be leaving school (yet!) things are about to get much easier shortly, due to the fact that for the first time - since I entered the school system proper back in grade school - I will no longer be a full-time student, but rather a part time student.  By the best of my estimations, I should be graduated by the end of summer.  No big fan fare, I just want out - desperately - at this point in time.


I don't know how to feel - maybe exhilarated? - but I can't help being frightened.  Money problems, mostly, which pisses me off, because I feel as though all of my money problems are due to the fact that I attended school to start with.  I really feel as though all of my personal problems are due to my having gone to college to begin with.


Anyway - I did a "head-count" of the books that I currently own, and I have estimated that I currently own *921 books* at this moment in time!   My best instincts tell me that I should give up buying books for now - what with the future being as tumultuous and uncertain as it seems to be, at the moment, but I think that it's impossible for me to pass up a book I want when it's at a price I cannot pass up.


Winter break is coming up - and with it, the freedom to do a little game playing, a lot of movie watching and even more reading and reviewing!
