Anya Christina Emmanuella Jenkins. Twenty years old. Born on the fourth of July — and don't think there weren't jokes about that my whole life, mister, 'cause there were. 'Who's our little patriot?' they'd say, when I was younger and therefore smaller and shorter than I am now.

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."

Well, not where I'm from. But maybe I'm not there anymore

Mm, I like The Hands of the Emperor so much. Pops into my head as something to contemplate pretty often

ETA: ooh, novella prequel I haven’t read! Petty Treasons

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

Hands of the Emperor looks so good--I wish they had it in trade paper.

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

Bev, can you see if your library has an electronic copy? That's how I'm reading it.

I've started working at the library bookstore again. So, if there is anything people are looking for leave me a message here or at my profile address, and I'll look next time I'm there.

I scored a hardcover edition of Charlotte's Web for ltc today, as well as a bunch of things for myself.

The first book I ever bought (excluding the Scholastic ordering at school) was from a Friends of the Library sale I ran into at Dadeland Mall. I must've read that book a dozen times.

Now tagless for your comfort.

Aurelia, I suggest The Busses are a Comin. Bonus, it's written by one of my high school history teachers!

My favorite stand alone KJC book is Wanted: A Gentleman. I actually found it in our library system! Having read all of her books, I can say she's got such incredible range within her historical contexts.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

Cashmere, that's a good one! Although I think my favorites may still be the Magpie Lord series.

Now tagless for your comfort.

I picked up Charm Offensive last week. It’s a quirky, queer romance with lines like this:

He’s not entirely sure what you’re supposed to do when you discover your sort-of friend who you also like to kiss might have clinical depression, but he figures he could start by talking to Dev.

It’s, dare I say, charming?
