Teaser Tuesday: somewhat less than epic fail

Guys, I've done it again. I've lost my will to read. There's a lot going on around here, admittedly -- May was such a stupidly crazy busy month, and I've been spending more time outside than inside. Which, to me, is a good thing. But it does mean that I've not spent as much time reading as I would like. And I'm having a hard time getting into longer books.

I've really been enjoying Northanger Abbey but I have to admit, it's not going fast. And I want something that grips me enough that I try to read at least a couple chapters every day, not something that can sit in the back seat of the car for four days without me feeling the need to go get it. I don't want anyone to think I'm not enjoying Northanger Abbey, because I am -- but it's not gripping reading, at least not to me in my current mood.

For that purpose, I've picked up Airborn by Kenneth Oppel in the hopes that it will grip me. I've also got some Scott Pilgrim and Ranma on the pile, and a new manga (Claymore) that I'm curious to start. I'm partway through a new comic, in my attempt to broaden my horizons and delve into true superhero comics.

So... no Teaser Tuesday this week. I'm not really reading anything thoroughly enough that it deserves a teaser. Hopefully the situation will be rectified by next Tuesday... or next Saturday, because otherwise I miss my first "book a week" deadline ever.
