My current record (since I started tracking my reading in 2006) was 77 books, in both 2009 and 2010. Unless my eyeballs suddenly drop out of my head, it seems likely that I'll set a new record this year! Hooray for finding great new (and new to me) authors!

(no subject)

Just watched the SHIELD season finale. What do I even say? Every character had something momentous happen, for good or bad. And that ending...

By the way, every time Ward shows his true colors I think about that person, a year or so ago, who unfriended me when I called Ward a psychopath. And I wonder what mental contortions she's going through to tell herself that her shmoopie doesn't really mean it, is still being controlled by others, is just misunderstood, etc. I wondered for a while if they were going to go into a redemption arc for him, but he's only gotten worse. Which I'm fine with, by the way. Every crew of heroes needs a villain.

Oh, and I may be biased, but Ant-Man looks stupid beyond belief.
