(no subject)

abyss_goat, sho_sunaga, your 100 Demons book and the shitajiki arrived! Thank you so much- I'm so happy with it. The book was something I'd seen at bk1 and said No can't have, too expensive and you don't need pretty pictures you already own. Henh. I do *not* have those pretty pictures because they were Nemuki and bunko covers, so nnah. And am pleased that I needn't buy the later bunko vols to get the covers of, say, Uncle Kai and his bald horned youkai.

Also finished rereading Hexwood last night. Diane Wynne Jones has this black hole aspect to her books, or some of them: I don't quite get them when I read them and I can't remember afterwards what happened in them. Granted, Hexwood is deliberately structured as a 'go back and reread' book, or reread while reading book, and I did both the first time. This time... things make a bit more sense, I suppose. I'm still not sure what happens in it. Next up in the 'I don't remember a thing' queue is Conrad's Fate, which is not supposed to be a problem book, and about whose action I remember literally not a thing.
