Starting to Read

Well, probably no one except other librarians would find it exciting that I’ve spent the last couple of days figuring out how to make Excel sit up and beg and tell me how well my language learning materials are doing in percentage checked out and circs per year. Sexy, right? Also, we had issues with the drains, which reminded me of old-school British children’s lit.

Anyway, since the review I started Saturday still isn’t done, I thought I’d tell you that I finally have The Dream Thieves to listen to (I’m loving it so far, but that might not be surprising.) And Song of the Quarkbeast came in on hold (as well as a book on performing early music that may be exciting only to me). I found the latest Merrie Haskell on the shelf, too, and I can’t even remember all other the lovely books I have waiting for me at home.

What are you reading, or looking forward to reading?

    I just finished “The Rithmatist”. It was as good as you said it was. A couple things:
    1) I was impressed that a book that could be summed up as “teenage boy who doesn’t quite fit in at a private school for wizards solves a mystery” only made me think of Harry Potter once – Prof. Nalizar gave me a Snape vibe for a page or two.
    2) The illustrations really added to the book – possibly unsurprising given that the magic system is based on drafting.
    I’m glad Brandon Sanderson seems to be a faster writer than… some other authors. I’m looking forward to more books in this world.

    Hello! I don’t comment enough to tell you how much I love your reviews. My son is already clamoring for a sequel to “The Secret Science Alliance and the Copycat Crook”, and I just finished “Friends with Boys” and am enjoying “Water”.

    I also have to say, I find Excel mastery very exciting, as I have to wrestle with it sometimes as part of my job. Bravo! 🙂
