Or, How I Learned to Speed Read. I am not a skipper by nature: I really do read every word. It takes a lot to convince me that in a given book, every word is not worth reading. Sixty-one Nails was such a book. Therefore I am finished it, and a load has fallen from my shoulders.

So I've started one of Seanan McGuire's October Daye books instead. It ought to annoy me as much as McLean's vampires do-- every sprite from the British Isles is currently resident in San Francisco, along with at least one kitsune. It doesn't, possibly because Toby isn't snooty/whiny like Wossname, the writing is brisker, and so far I'm not presented with hawt vampires. I'd like to have started with the first book but I'm at the bottom of the list at the library for that one. So I shall get all my backstory here in no.2. And then maybe start on the Borribles, if I can find where I put them.
