I'm technically supposed to be head & shoulders into my practice report for my credentials, but a girl's got to change the mental scenery sometime! So, in addition to the dry-as-dust course material, I'm reading James Morrow's The Philosopher's Apprentice . So far, it is appallingly un-put-downable....

Information Overload: The Prequel

I was scrolling through the doings on my Facebook account, and found a link to this article: http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ideas/articles/2010/11/28/information_overload_the_early_years/?page=full On Facebook - Who'd'a'thunk? But it was an intriguing article, and made sense of something I had re...

I really enjoy the Shardlake series, and this was a great article to read on the author. I have to say, I'm very much looking forward to books taking place in the reigns of the Tudor children, most especially Elizabeth. It delighted me that he's thinking that far in advance! One of my favourite thin...

Just finished Russian Winter , by Daphne Kalotay. Her first, from the promotional copy on the cover. A "now-vs-then" novel, "now" being the preparation for the auction of a famous ballerina's fabulous-sounding jewelry collection (I actually wished it was a picture-book at times), and "then" being th...

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it today (a month late ;) ) The best thing today was getting kicked out of the office to go home early by the most elegantly curmudgeonly man I have ever known, who insisted that my 45-minute commute wasn't going to improve with age.

I finished it this weekend, and I have a suggestion for the title of the next book: Lord John and the American Tangle; Or, A Novel of Loose Ends . I am finding myself heartily distracted by the myriad loose ends at the finale. The ONLY storyline in this book I found to have a reasonable summary (but...
