Current Distractions, April 2012 Edition

I should begin by saying, in case I haven't yet, that The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie isn't at the library in my city, but I just now remembered that the library system is now province-wide, so I've requested it as of a few minutes ago. As soon as it comes in, I promise I'll read it as fast as I can and get the review posted. Fortunately it looks like it's really short. In the meantime, I'm building up "R book" reviews, although I have a clever plan for the R25 book review that I hopefully won't flake out on, but I won't tell you about it yet, just in case.

In case you're curious about what might be coming up as far as the random book reviews go, in a fit of me being myself the other day, I decided to add all the books I have on my bookshelf that I haven't read yet to my "to-read" pile on Goodreads. I'm really picky about ISBNs over there, but the fact is that a lot of my inherited books are so old that there are no ISBNs printed on them, so I had to be lazy with a few. I also have a bunch of French books that I'm pretty sure don't exist anywhere in Goodreads at all, and that I'm not interested in adding. Anyway, there are over thirty books on that last, which at my current reading rate will take me about two years to read. Argh!

Basically April consisted of preparations for the con of choice, which, now that it's over, I can tell you was the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which I'll definitely be posting about as soon as I can throw something together over my upcoming lunch hours at work and/or next weekend at a coffee shop. I also finally finished watching The X-Files, got through season 3 of Being Human U.K., and watched the first season of Misfits (which I'm happy to recommend on the strength of Iwan Rheon's performance alone).

Also, I did my taxes, watched The Incredible Hulk as the last missing piece of the preparation puzzle for The Avengers, and I'm not even sure exactly what else. As I mentioned in my previous post, I won't have any internet next month, so presumably I'll have a lot more to write about when the end of it rolls around.
