Recently read: Game of Cages by Harry Connolly; City of Fire by Lawrence Yep; Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews. Am now laughing my head off at Harry's original title for Game of Cages, Everybody Loves Blue Dog, as I get it now and it's hysterical. Completely not good as the final title, but very very funny.

New Plan! I have a lot of very cool books in the house which I am not reading because I buy them and then get distracted by the latest hold to arrive at the library for me, and so on. My New Plan is to read one book I've already bought and have sitting on my bookshelves for every book that I bring home (including from the bookstore and the library). I'm experiencing Total Fail in this department so far, but I have hopes that it might catch on.

I have, because I Love My Husband, and he is experiencing general lifesuck, given him first crack at I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett. He was reading it in the bath, earlier in the evening. The book did not hit water, nor did water hit it. My husband still lives. Did I say that I Love him? I must.

I've been working in the bookstore (one day a week) for about three months now, and it is a Good Thing. I'd forgotten how much I like recommending books to people, talking away about this or that with that boingboingboing...read this! feeling of fun. I'm starting to get my book-selling feet under me again...it's been a long time since I worked in the bookstore and I was feeling that I had missed out on all the trends of the last seven to ten years, but it's getting better. Now I can tell myself that my reading at home is work-related, which it is, really, because how else can I recommend books but by reading as many as possible? I love having a justification beyond simple greedy book lust.

And how are you?
