Wow, it's been a long time since I did a 50 book challenge - or 24, as is much more reasonable for me. Well, I'm going to try again, because I miss reading, much as I enjoy everything I do online - and evidently I do a lot - it eats up a _whole_ lot of time, and my attention span is markedly shorter than it used to be, so this year I'm going to try to unplug more and find other ways to spend my time and engage my brain.

So, I picked up Star Trek, the novelization of the first reboot!verse movie, toward the end of last year, to help me write my Star Trek AU fic for the Rumbelle Secret Santa exchange on tumblr, and finished reading it last night.

It was... okay. Usually what I enjoy about movie novelizations are the extra bits of exposition in the narration that are either edited from the finished movie for time, or too subtle to notice onscreen. This novel didn't have many of those, so it was eh. I didn't get anything from reading it that I didn't already have from the movie, which at times made it hard to keep reading, especially after I was done writing my fic and no longer "needed" it.

Eeee, book challenge! Reading = good. :D

(I totes understand needing more personal brain time away. 'm selfishly hoping over here that you don't unplug too far, though... 'Cause I've grown kinda attached to my friend. *HUGS*)

Well, at the moment I'm on the computer pretty much all my waking hours (oops), so there's a good deal of unplugging I can do and still be "here" plenty, have no fear. :D
