What Happened to the Platypus' Summer 2015 Reading?
A typical summer here at the Platypus of Truth features literary reviews or live blogs of series such as Terry Brooks' Shannara or my projected plan to work through Garth Nix's Abhorsen series. This year, while some books are being read (Moby Dick and The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings) most of my time is being sucked away by a change of apartment complex and a slew of medical tests trouble shooting my perennial stomach problems. In the meantime, pencils and pastels have become a favorite distraction and hence their proliferation on this site. We'll see if enough reading gets done to still post the "Seven Heavens of Summer Reading" awards at the end of August, but that may not happen. In any case, literary criticism will resume as soon as possible and the trip through Nix has not been forgotten. Until then, whatever's going on with me, the Platypus speaks Truth.
