Reading.

I have just finished reading Small Shen by Kylie Chan, with illustration/graphic portions by Queenie Chan.

It's a ripping tale of mythological characters and their adventures on the celestial and earthly plains, leaping around from era to era. Sex, love, gods and demons. Also: Hong Kong.

I had not expected to enjoy manga style graphics so much.

So, having finished this, I'm now treating myself to Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. (Yes, famous for the Bechdel Test although rather amusingly, she denies having come up with the idea and attributes it to her friend Liz Wallace.)

I've decided that once I've finished reading one more book off my shelves (or possibly Fun Home if it arrives soon enough), I'll treat myself either to another written novel by Kylie Chan or another graphic novel/comic collection by Queenie Chan although knowing me I'll end up buying both because reasons.

I totally agree with the because. And the reading.
