Books that I read in August

Books that I read in August:

40. Conley, Erin Elizabeth, Karen Macklin, & Jake Miller. Crap (95 p.)

41. Asprin, Robert & Jody Lynn Nie. Myth-gotten Gains (Myth Adventures) (278 p.)

August total: 373 pages
YTD total: 8,604 pages



Busy few months here. Not much time for reading, less time for writing.

Crap is mostly aimed at teenagers & perhaps younger college students, but most of the advice for dealing with and overcoming various kinds of crap in one's life is applicable to anyone.

Myth-gotten Gains has a kernel of a good idea, but the execution is uneven. I mostly liked it, and if you've already read all of the Myth books that Asprin wrote himself, it's good enough for what it is, but if you haven't read the originals, go read those instead.
