Check out their blogs for more information about this month-long event. There are lots of activities which take place on participants’ blogs and other places throughout the internet. Check out the Google document which list participants’ activities.
I’ve loved and read science fiction since I was a young teenager. My brother who is five years older read lots of science fiction (still does) and I read some of the authors he read–Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Then I continued on to my own authors: Andre Norton and Anne McCaffrey and countless others. I go through phases in my reading–sometimes reading less science fiction and sometimes more while I read other genres as well. But through the years I’ve always read some each year.
This sounds like lots of fun and I love that it continues for a whole month!
The Martian by Andy Weir
Prequels to the Earth Girl series–“Earth and Fire” (a novella) & Earth 2788 (short stories) by Janet Edwards
A couple more if I can get them read!
I have a couple more ideas I need to refine before they’re ready
I also plan to participate in The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet Read Along
Are you participating in Sci-Fi Month? How are you planning to celebrate science fiction this month?
I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!
Last Week–home and blog
Halloween and standard time
Halloween was on Saturday night. And once again we had no Trick or Treaters. It seems fewer and fewer kids go trick or treating these days. I think more kids go to parties more these days.
I did get my Halloween cards mailed as well as birthday cards and autumn cards.
We go back to standard time early Sunday morning. Means it will be dark that much earlier in the evenings. Oh, well!
What we’re watching
We watched Supergirl this week. I wasn’t too impressed, but may give it another week or two. Glad Elementary begins soon. Also found a detective show on Acorn called The Republic of Doyle. It takes place in Newfoundland and my husband is enjoying it, too. He doesn’t always like the police or detective shows I like and I don’t always like his shows. It’s always nice to find a show we both like. We’ve also watched some of the World Series games.
I made some progress with Blog Ahead. Not as much as I’d hoped, but any extra posts help and I plan to keep adding to them!
November will be a busy month. It’s Sci-Fi Month and the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon is happening in the middle of the month. Regular activity on the blog will keep me busy, too.
My husband and I also have decided to drive to Iowa for Thanksgiving this year so we are leaving November 21 (the weekend before Thanksgiving) for the drive. We are hoping we won’t have snow during the drive. I have lots to do before we make our drive.
