This is not the week to get sick. It’s not the week to get blisters or bruises or terribly sore muscles. It’s definitely not the week to get any sort of running-related injury. It’s also not the week to lose sleep or be overtired. To that end, I promised myself that I would be in bed reading by 8:30 tonight. It sounds utterly ridiculous, but I have to get up super early to get downtown tomorrow, and I’m tired just thinking about it.
And so I leave you with the most awesomest thing ever: a flowchart that walks you through the top 100 science fiction and fantasy books, as listed by NPR a few weeks ago. Apparently, since the list is just that, with very little detail to guide readers new to the genre(s), the helpful people over at SF Signal created this flowchart (which is the most awesomely wonderful thing and I want a big poster of it). And now there’s an interactive version! I was directed here by this post of John Scalzi’s, and in the interest of full disclosure, I’ll tell you that my list of books to buy grew three sizes based on NPR’s list and the comments from John Scalzi’s readers in this post on his site. You know, in case you’re interested.
