The contents of "Mike and Psmith" have been published both as the second half of the novel known as "Mike" and on their own as a standalone novel. I began "Mike" and then remembered that the first half is just a whole bunch of cricketing and I simply cannot care that much about cricket, especially since we have Mike without his Most Important Person.

So I abandoned that and decided to just reread "Mike and Psmith" instead. Much better. Still too much cricketing, and Psmith is not quite as main a character yet as one might hope, but contains some thoroughly enjoyable elements. Mainly seeing Psmith interact with the world, and seeing Mike and Psmith interact with each other. (I love Mike and Psmith a great deal!) But DEAR GOD the cricket is still interminable. If I recall correctly the next two books are a great improvement. We'll see if my brief re-spiked interest in the Psmith books carries me on.

I AM BACKKKK! Well actually I returned late sunday night but then I was exhausted and also I have work and also catching up on the real life things I wasn't doing while on vacation, so. I am still exhausted but I am at least nominally kind of here! AND I COME WITH LOTS OF BOOKS.

Look, my vacation was CANOE TRIPPING, which when you do it right (which obvs I do) leaves you lots of time to hang out in the beautiful wilderness with a book. So. I read NINE BOOKS while on vacation! Plus I had a couple I didn't post about from before the trip. Plus I read a book yesterday. So. Let's go!
