Yesterday was day one of the Reading Rush, and I read one book of my tbr! Unfortunately it was the shortest, but I am making progress. I had hoped to have finished my current series before the Rush, but that didn’t happen, so I am still reading those, as well as hopefully finding the time to read my TBR. Luckily I don’t have a lot going on right now, so can devote time to reading. Here’s a graph of my current progress!
As you can see, I read the Saga of Gunnlaug Serpent-tongue, a book that I thought was very interesting in its insights into Viking stories. It is unusual to see poets as the ‘heroes’ of stories in this genre, with them going on great adventures and such. However, this entire thing could have been resolved without a lot of anguish and death if men asked women what they wanted in life! I know it’s a crazy idea, but I think that more people should do it!
