Bad Blogger Take Eight - Part Two
Books picked up at the library today:
Mister Monday by Garth Nix - Marg really likes this series, so I figured I would give it a go.
Pay the Piper by Jane Yolen - Rhinoa. Although, someone else mentioned it more recently and reminded me of it, I just can't remember where I saw it! Really must start making notes...
The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine by April Lurie - Chris mentioned this in an email and now has read and reviewed it! Considers it one of his top reads so far this year.
Quiet week at the library. Might actually get a bit caught up this weekend!
You know. I was talking to the charming comedian on the phone as I was headed to the library (it was nice out, so I decided to walk) and he called me a nerd because, well, I was walking to the library! Anyway, it struck me as funny. He calls me a nerd all the time and it just sort of dawned on me that it doesn't really bother me... Now, if this was about ten years ago he could have wound up in the intensive care unit for a comment like that. I HATE being labeled, so it is still not the best thing he could call me in the world, but I guess I have loosened up a bit over the years!
Which reminds me of the other day when he noticed I was reading the Conan books by Robert Howard. He was all excited because he has seen the movies (we watched them together last year, actually). So, I was showing him the books on Amazon and I came to, I think, the second one in the series and he said 'I want to see that!'. Well, I, of course, pointed out to him that it was a book not a movie. His response was that he meant they should make it into a movie. We sort of have things in common...
