The main website for the show lets you go back to the beginning when it was stupid and had episodes like "How the Berlin Wall Worked" and one of the hosts says the only news resource she reads is "the Times of New York."
Unlike now, when they do episodes about Queen Nzinga and Beryl Markham and George Arents. All fascinating people! None of whom I knew about! I have some basic details on Belle Starr now and Bessie Coleman and Evliya Çelebi and damnit, I am not ready to let Deblina and Sarah go. They are the best.
But I haven't really been reading, which might be slightly integral to a book blog. But whatever, I've written about Reign on here (which CONTINUES to be fantastic, btdubs). Mmm. Reign.
Anyway, December seems to make me not want to read, which is probably because of frantic running about looking for presents/trying to find wrapping paper at Target to cover said presents, but then Target basically has NO wrapping paper and what! Why! Is it in some secret section? Wouldn't you have tons and tons of wrapping paper if your main purpose was to sell things people can wrap? I'm not saying that places like Pottery Barn should have wrapping paper, but Target? Yes. Although I am not averse to the idea that the entire downtown Chicago population bought the wrapping paper before I got there. There are a lot of us. And Christmas is eight days away.

I'm hoping to finish Feast for Crows before the new year, along with Gilead, Queen Lucia, and Bad Feminist. I have Things to Say about Bad Feminist, but I'm not even halfway through and it was due at the library on Monday, so I am currently illegally hoarding it to the tune of TWENTY CENTS A DAY. There is an actual price to my laziness. And it is shockingly cheap.
