Also I have lost my watch, unless the backpack of holding has swallowed it again. I took it off at acupuncture last night and failed, as I often do, to put it back on; and as I put it in the open side pocket, the odds of it slipping out are very good indeed. People nowadays use their phones; I can only say, there's no comparison.
When you read kids' books and YA, you can read fast. Hence:
Anne Ursu, The Real Boy
- probably found this on someone's list of Books With Disabled Protagonists, but so long ago I can't remember who or what. Thus came to it with an open mind. Well, openish: having read another book with the same settei I was able to go Ahah when confronted with protag's world view.
Eric Kimmel, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
- fun from the FL.
Vallista arrived yesterday. Must read ASAP since there are still umpteen holds on it at the library.
Holiday reading from the holds list- The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England- A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century for meat and potatoes, and The Miniaturist for, hopefully, lighter fun.
