Reasonable news.

According to the higi station down the road, my BMI has gone down by half a kg/m2 over the year. Wiki says units are usually omitted informally, but I don't care. (I'm closer to the edge of underweight, but still OK.)

Higi means origins in a language based in Chad, according to the website.

According to Goodreads, I am two books ahead of schedule, but I don't want to increase my anticipated yield of 300 completed books this year unless I reach ten books ahead, to account for possible laziness in August when I tend to be writing. This year might be the one I finally write a whole novel short story in Russian. I trust I can compose in that language more than in Chinese, which I'm more comfortable using to speak.
It's probably also bad that my trivia recall record is so low, but I honestly haven't been trying too hard.

Goncharov's Oblomov has been fun, the little I've read of it thus far! I seriously delved into it today.
(And I entered a giveaway for M.V. Freeman's Incandescent. It might be more worth my while to enter the one for Ezekiel Watch, too. I'll enter them both! I enter those book giveaways all the time, but have never won them. I received a complimentary copy of Bald New World, though, since the author felt inspired by my review. It's now on my bookshelf right next to Chris Baty's "No Plot? No Problem!")

I think the last big book I might be well-advised to polish off for tomorrow is Dinaw Mengestu's All Our Names. But then again, I have yet to renew it. I'll probably renew it tomorrow, watch Women in Love with my mother then, then drop it off on Sunday along with everything else I've finished.
