I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.
Over the last 3 months. I think I have one more week to get some fun reading done. Then I have finals coming up in a few weeks.
After that, I am descending into Math Hell. I have not taken a math class in 30 years. No, closer to 35. My plan is to teach the glass to myself, possibly with the help of a tutor, over the 16 weeks from the beginning of May to the end of August. If I feel comfortable enough, I will then actually take the class in the fall. If not, I will drop it and take something else and do another round of teaching myself with a tutor.
I only have 35 hours left to take, but I feel like I won't do it if I don't get math out of the way.
