Clearly, there's a new banner on my blog. I designed it using GIMP--you know, the open-source user-unfriendly version of Photoshop? Man, Photoshop is cool.
I don't have much to blog about today, except that I've decided to join a few of my friends in making a promise to read 50 books this year. I'm a little behind since it's almost February, so I decided to count the book I finished in January and the one I'm currently reading. Of course, I'm reading The Fortress of Solitude by Jonathan Lethem right now, and that's a healthy 500 pages. Still, I plan to finish it by Friday and then start a collection of shorts on Saturday. That gives me three in January--almost the four I need to make one a week.
I imagine that in school, I easily read 50 books each year. Taking a lot of fiction courses makes that a pretty simple task. In my contemporary short story class, I think I read a total of thirteen books. Add that to all my other classes and my pleasure reading, and then there's no need for any more maths.
For now, off to work with me.
