Pulled up my quick-n-dirty "portal" page this morning to find that the nearest city traffic cam is celebrating New Years' Eve pretty colorfully.
Really enjoyed this L.A.Rev. of Books piece on Ray Bradbury at 100, the UC Riverside anecdote in particular.
(And the idea that "little boys read novels back then.” I read novels at 11. I also wasted hundreds of hours playing Kangaroo on a 5200. 😆)
I feel like I didn't read anything this year; couldn't concentrate on anything longer than a cereal box. What I did read, I barely remember. The latest Stephenson and Gibson, Bayern Agenda, Jemisin and Chambers’s short stories? Yeah, sorta recall all of those.
The Murderbot novel, yes, good stuff.
The three pop-sci books I got for free from NetGalley, they were all okay.
