The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant part VI by Stephen R. Donaldson (
So I’ve finished part VI which is somehow an end to the chronicles because (spoiler alert!) at the end of part VI, TC actually dies. Which is unfortunate because it makes me wonder what happends in the parts VII to X… *sigh* – to be continued, I guess

星空を願った狼の by Shiina Takasato (
50 more pages to go….

Desperation by Stephen King

红豚 by a friend of a co-worker

PADI Tec Deep Diver Manual
Not sure if I will ever do this… but it’s interesting to read about it, at least at the moment.

限りなく透明に近いブルー (

Yes, I’m getting spread a little bit but it’ll get better again. And I have a number of other e-books waiting to be read – sci-fi stuff, lots of it.

Update January 23rd: It’s getting worse… I’m also re-reading Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett (couldn’t resist and once in a while I like to read something which makes you laugh) and Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson (from the highly-recommended series Malazan Book of the Fallen)

On the other hand, I finished The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant Part VI which is good but I started with part VII, so yeah….

Overall, one down, three more added which makes a net plus of two.

A slightly cautious “happy 2019”

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Ah, well…. another year… I wonder what will happen this year. Anyway, if we’re really to talk about resolutions, I’ve decided to pursue my goals more vehemently although I’m somewhat afraid of the consequences for the people around me.

Nonetheless, to all of you out there: happy 2019, may your dreams come true!
