Since I have a paid premium account on here now, I should use Dreamwidth more. Maybe I'll make a community or two tomorrow.

Unrelatedly, I have 155 books to read, and I can't choose a single one to read right now. I'm partway through Naomi Novik's Empire of Ivory, but I'll finish that tomorrow. Oh, dilemma.

Here's an idea: line up a bunch of them and get someone here to pick a number between 1 and {number of books}. Then read the book they pick!

(Also, eee, Temeraire.)

Oh, I read that a while ago and enjoyed it! I hope you do. It's the only book of McKinley's that I've read so far, but it convinced me I wanted to read more.

Oh, Deerskin, I remember that I read that too. An incredibly hard subject and fairytale to deal with, but she did it well.

Even though I don't read books half as much any more (the internet has swallowed up much of my time), wherever I go, books still congregate. Wardrobe, bookshelves, weird cabinet thing, boxes, bags, all full up. I suspect there are many I'm forgetting to read, and some quiet day will be a very joyous one as I drag out good new book after good new book.

*grins at you* Sometimes when people perk up at interests I have, they're old or not especially things that matter to me any more. But each of those sure do and are current, too. I love that you respond that way to them, and I think we may get along. I've sub/acced you. :)
