Excuse me while I make excuses

June has unexpectedly come to an end (already!), and I find myself at the beginning of my busiest time of year on the work-front, and already abandoning my comfy reading corners on a regular basis for the woods and wilds – which leads to less reading, less blogging, etc. This is the same tale I tell every year along about this time, so etc. etc. etc. etc. For the moment I just want to report that I did in fact finish all of my self-imposed reading assignments for the month of June. My sidebar here at WWHHIAFTC is more than just decoration after all!
June Reading
Yes, the reading was accomplished but the blogging is trailing a few paces behind. Although I missed properly participating in Ubu Week, and am late to The Wolves’ The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao party, and can pretty much expect that I won’t get a review of Your Face Tomorrow: Fever and Spear written for Richard’s readalong for a few more days…I do have every intention of scribbling a few bits about each of these books in the next week or so. You have that to look forward to. Just saying.

Happy July and happy summer and happy reading!


  1. What a tease! No hint on how you felt about any of these books prior to your upcoming posts? Happy July!

    • Haha. Well, I loved one, was bemused by another, and was annoyed by the third. Guess which is which? 🙂

      • I loved, was bemused by, and was annoyed by The Ubu Plays.

        That’s the cover Grove Press has on Ubu now?

      • Marías, Jarry, Díaz? Obviously, I’m keeping my fingers crossed about that first guess. 😀

      • Yup. That cover is trying WAY too hard to look like “a mock Macbeth”. Horribly inaccurate.

        And I can certainly attest to the disconcertingly various reactions to Ubu.

        Richard, good guesses! 🙂

  2. No worries, woman! I am also behind but getting there. 30 pages left of Fever and Spear and have not written for Wolves because I was seriously uninspired but will put something up.

    • That makes two of us feeling uninspired – but the others were good sports so we too must contribute…!
