Two quarterly consumption issues in the can, two more left for the year.
Syndicate Consumption 18.2 was published in a timelier manner than the previous installment. I’ve started writing notes and reviews as I finish books, movies, etc., so all I need to do at the end of the quarter is put in some serious editing work (I killed a lot of my darlings), design the cover, and lay out the issue. Still quite a bit of work, but at least I don’t have to try to remember details about books I finished months ago. I am going to try to maintain this habit for the remainder of the year.
This issue is longer than the 1st Quarter publication, due to some wordier reviews of items that particularly inspired or irritated me in the past three months. I also haven’t quit buying books, evidenced by the list of library sale spoils that ends this collection.
