So I think I’m putting the thing to good use, with a very heavy leaning to fantasy and science fiction. 18% are “in flight”, which is no horrible, but probably reflects the fact that when something new and exciting comes up, some books are easier to go back and resume than others.

Also, when I find an author I like, I tend to buy more things from the same author, preferably but no always in a series of books. That’s more likely than the other way around – if I find I series I like, I may not get the books that are written by someone other than the ‘starting’ author.

And that’s enough self-learning for today. Time to enjoy a rare sunny Seattle day now.
