Look what went up over night! It's a bit long this month, even with me trying not to ramble.

I decided a bit last minute to join the coming week's Booktubeathon. I'm aiming to read 7 books in 7 days. Which is why I picked very short books. *winks*

I'm back from my holiday, and in fact back to work this morning *moans*.

Continuum 13 was a great convention. All the panels were fascinating and the audience only irritated me in a couple of them. And every single one I went to had no more than one token man. I've heard there were some that had more, but not many. Funnily enough, the discussions were still intelligent, insightful and entertaining. I was vastly amused and suspect a certain programmer did it on purpose. *winks*

I steampunked up on the Sunday as the Ditmar Awards were that evening and survived the whole day in a corset without getting sore until late evening. Hurrah! I was also incredibly restrained book wise.

May Wrap Up

I had a really good reading month, even if the video is a bit later than I wanted.

This particular readathon did not quite go as I hoped.

This week I am going to attempt Bout of Books for the first time. And this is my sign up post which is bordering on being late. My TBR is in the video below. Not sure how much I will get done between work and the studying I really need to get to, but I'm gonna try.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 19 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

This is the first video I've filmed using my new lighting attachment for my phone. Hmmm...

I have an essay due on Sunday. *sighs* Why did I think this uni thing was a good idea again? Oh right, intellectual stimulation and study what I like. Unfortunately most of this year will be the couple of required subjects I have to do which is why I currently have a 10% written essay on the assumptions underpinning the arguments regarding emergency contraception.

Yeah, I totally picked the topic so I could give the negative arguments a feminist slanted shredding.

I have officially gone further in my running program than I managed on my first attempt in January/February. Go me! Not sure how long I will last this time, but as long as each attempt improves I guess I'm doing well.

I've pretty much decided to my first Bout of Books readathon next week, though I haven't actually signed up yet. That will be one of my procrastination tasks this weekend. ;) I've already filmed a combined April Wrap Up & Haul this evening which will be set to upload over night.

In the meantime I am spending my evening having random dance parties and probably reading a bit. And possibly watching some new-to-me Time Team because one of the packages I picked up this morning was a new DVD.

My reading this weekend will probably be focused on the Starlit Wood anthology, my Emma re-read and Ms Marvel because volume 6 is due back at the library on Tuesday along with the Saga volumes I've already read.

And you know, anything extra I need for my essay *shifty eyes*

So I participated in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon again this past weekend and had a great time. I read about 1,272 pages overall. I also filmed a vlog throughout the 24 hours.

I hoping I might finish The Left Hand of Darkness today at least. I don't have far to go and I have the day off work as a recovery (and also laundry) day.
