Reading, Listening, Watching  
A day late, but I felt more like this than throwback Thursday.

Reading: I have just belatedly finished Thick as Thieves the latest in The Queen's Thief series of novels. It was fine, but very like The Thief in some ways (it was mostly a travelogue) and the "twist" was pretty obvious if you've read the other books in the series - also I was frankly far less interested in the two main characters than I am in Attolia and Eugenides.

Listening: With the banishment of Doctor Who from our screens my podcasting list has shrunk back to a normal size (there are several podcasts I can't really be bothered with if they're not talking about actual new Doctor Who). I've put David Tennant's new podcast in which he talks to various celebrities on my list, though I've not listened to any yet. In general I'm not terribly engaged by celebrity interview podcasts so I'm a little dubious about this, but will give it a go and see.

Watching: Mostly we are watching A Series of Unfortunate Events and I'm torn between admiring it's presentation and production values and finding it rather repetitive. We've ground to a bit of a halt with Grimm because it seemed to be about to descend into tedious relationship drama - I suspect said drama will only last an episode or two, but I don't think either of us particularly want to watch through it.
