Uni Updates

In the past few weeks I’ve had to change my class timetable several times, so the post I previously wrote about classes is now pretty much null and void. One of the changes I had expected; Creative Writing Dissertation is for 4th years or 3rd years doing a general humanities degree. Since I am neither it means that I don’t need to take it this year.

I had some after waking up from a nap feeling really yucky and while I do still feel sleepy, the coffee and food helped a lot.

A-Z of Books

Found this thanks to Li, the original survey creator is Jamie @ the Perpetual Page-Turner 🙂   Author you’ve read the most books from: I’m going to guess that it is Laurell K Hamilton as there are currently 23 books in her Anita Blake series, 8 Merry Gentry novels and various other books of hers that I have read and then there are the marvel comics as well.
