Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.

There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."

Goodreads reminded me that I could read The Ship of Stolen Words so that is now on my Nook. Yay!

I spent the weekend bingeing on Jenny Colgan novels. Which are not quite cotton candy: the writing is pretty good, and she spends a lot of time on scenery and food. And now I want to go visit the Scottish Highlands.

not your mom's socks.

The b.org party in the chat at the bookstore last night filled me with so much joy. It was wonderful to see you, there's a whole lot of the livestream on my youtube channel, and good gosh I miss you all.

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

I have it on preorder! I can't remember how I came across it, probably Twitter?

I read the line about their being room for cannons to deploy under a window without disturbing the window box full of petunias and was immediately looking around for the clicky "take my money" button.
