I'm moving to a new apartment a week from now. As the move was planned two months in advance, I've been making a concerted effort to demolish my TBR pile so that I can send as many books as possible back to the States with Japan's bulk printed material shipping option. I was averaging a book a day, despite the depredations to my free time caused by Doom Thesis. Of course, there are still fucktons of books that I want, so the deal was going to be that I could buy one book for every ten I read, then one more after finishing another ten plus the purchased book, and so on.

Midway through last month, the OM bought two books for me, which set me back two days, but hey! I'm the sort who would rather be treated to books over food, even when on the brink of starvation. And I'd never heard of either of the two series, and as it turns out, they were waaay good. Which was also good, as it provided motivation to read faster so I could buy the next volumes in the two series.

I should probably mention here that I had told No One, including the OM about my read-down scheme. But it's as if the universe knows. )

In other news, my oral defense was held to day. I anticipate being the proud owner of a Master's Degree come March.

That will be all.
