I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I have three hours to finish this book if I want to make it to the second cheapest showing of the movie today. Or I can just skip out on the movie this weekend and hope that it's still playing next weekend (this is a smallish town, so there are no guarantees).
Anyway, I'm trying. On the one hand, I'm definitely invested in Watney's survival and am enjoying finding out how he makes it through each thing that goes wrong. On the other hand, I'm finding myself skimming some of the science, because it's either too much work for me to try to follow along, or I just don't care about all the details. So I'm sipping my Shigure (Fruits Basket) fandom tea and I'm trying.
