Seasons of Reading: Sci-Fi Summer Read-a-Thon

Michelle, of Seasons of Reading, is hosting the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon this week. I had planned to read The Martian during the read-a-thon but it's Mini-him's and he took it with him when he moved. Rotten kid. Instead I'm reading Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead. I'm not sure that it rightly qualifies as sci-fi because I'm not sure there's any actual science involved. Although there is a pandemic. So, science, right?

There's not a lot of time to read this week so my read-a-thon may be nothing more than the usual amount of reading, just a book out of my usual comfort zone. Which is a good thing.

What book(s) would you read if you were joining us?


  1. I have heard such good things about Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead. I read a short story collection of his years ago and loved it. I wish I could join in, but my reading this weekend is devoted to something else already. I am in a science fiction mood though so I imagine I will be reading something along those lines before too long.

  2. So glad to have you joining us. I'm disgustingly behind on my hosting duties. :( So, how's the book so far? I love the cover...very intriguing. Hope you're able to get it finished. I'm hoping to finish Sagan's Contact. Happy reading!
