After dilly-dallying on it for over a year, I polished off the last of Quicksilver today. I had read the first 300 pages back around the time when it came out, but between moving back to NJ and all kinds of other stuff I got distracted. A few months ago I made it through another 200 pages before being distracted again… I started reading it on my first flight down to Texas two weeks ago and read the remaining 400ish pages since then. Now I am charged to move on to book two in the series, The Confusion. Baby steps into the Baroque Cycle.
This weekend was lots of fun,
Work… Before my trip last week a ton of work was dumped on us, all due Nov. 1. We were told the deadline was being pushed back, and the fact that Garrett, Steve, and I were all being sent out of the office for a week wouldn’t matter. Now, when we return today, we find out that the deadline is still Nov. 1. Scrambling ensues.
