New Glasses!

I know cheap isn't always better...but I just received my new glasses courtesy firmoo.com and they were $36 all in all. For prescription lenses. And they're comfortable, good-looking...

And best of yet!!! --I can see.

Meaning: I can read.

Which is especially wonderful as my list of "books to be read" has stacked up while the eye-strain headaches worsened.

So I'm looking forward to some quality time with:

The Way of Kings, Brandon Sanderson
Thunderbird Falls, C.E. Murphy (2nd in the series)
Flesh and Fire, Laura Anne Gilman (From World Fantasy Convention, '09)
Shadowrise, Tad Williams (Vol. 3 in the series)
The Popol Vuh (Mayan mythology)
Grant Writing Handbook (LOL: trying to get non-profit started here, so in the intensive knowledge-acquiring phase :P)
And an html textbook (More needed knowledge)

And there's more... but I think these are the highlights! :D
What are you reading right now?


  1. Yay for new glasses. I think my eyes are overworked, but I wouldn't know how to stop it.

    My current books:

    Human Anatomy and Physiology (I love textbooks!)
    Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Shelby, Jr.
    A Good Indian Wife by Anne Cherian (note: NOT a chick lit)
    Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak in Vietnamese so I can practice my reading.

    That's it. I am ashame of my super short and pathetic list. :( While others read anywhere from 50 - 100 books per year, I struggle to read just 30 books per year. :(

  2. I just started Radiance by Alyson Noel.

    Enjoy your books and your glasses.

  3. Wow, what a deal. I'm in need of some new glasses myself, thanks for the link. Congratulations and enjoy those books!

  4. I finished AN HONEST LIE, a short story anthology that includes a story by one of my favorite bloggy friends Eric W. Trant.

    And ELDALA, by Michelle Gregory; another blog friend.

    You have a marvelously varied reading list.


  5. My current books are something like four anthro text books and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, which I desperately want to get back to, but Seneca folklore, Neolithic mortuary practices and blogging are interfering... I like your list!
