I did actually finish reading Homo Ludens - hooray!

But that was 10 days ago and I haven't tooted about the fact till now - boo, bad scholar, no biscuit for you!

Took me longer than expected - multiplexing and too many brain tabs open.

It was a worthwhile read, and required reading for certain disciplines. And I can see why it was recommended. But I shall hold off on follow-on reading for now.

Several other projects are pressing, and I have a lot of creative writing to do.
