I must say, I'm a little concerned that I'll get on her nerves. I don't know how many breaks is too much, how long they're supposed to be (I'm guessing 5-10, once an hour? I just don't know). I've been known to talk up a storm sometimes (we can be quite guilty of it together, actually). Also, I had said I was going to create an itinerary of things to do, but I just don't know what I'm doing. I should go for Lean training, so I'll be better prepared on handling social situations, such as this.
I've set aside some books for Saturday:
|I'm sorry, you may have to turn your head.|
I've got my kobo on the left hand side (top of the pic, with this justification), which is full of goodies. I'm not a huge fan of my kobo, but I'll probably have it out for some duration of the event. Then there's:
- Charlie McDowell's "Dear Girls Above Me" (humour, and... I think it might actually be a novel)
- Katherine Dunn's "Geek Love" (fiction, recommended by a friend a long time ago, finally picked up)
- Caitlin Moran's "Moranthology" (in progress)
- Preston & Childs' "Cemetary Dance" (a Pendergast novel)
- Joseph Conrad's "Tales of Hearsay" (published posthumously, I believe)
- One of Jeff Smith's graphic novels, from the "Bone" series (I wanna be as laid back as Smiley Bone)
- Canadian finance guru Gail Vaz Oxlade's "It's Your Money" (website)
- Harlan Ellison's "Over the Edge" (short stories)
- Roland Barthes' "Mythologies" (essays)
I know that may seem like a very ambitious pile, and I don't actually intend to read all of them. I felt the need to narrow things down a fair amount, so I didn't spend 20 minute hemming and hawing on Saturday morning. I tried to include a lot of very light stuff as well.
At any rate, I still have a lot to get done before Saturday! Happy reading!
