Do I wish I was somebody else right now. Somebody not... married, not madly in love with a beautiful woman who can kill me with her pinkie!

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, I'm now 99th on 6 copies of "The Thursday Murder Club" at my public library. Apparently other people have heard that it is good also.

If dreams were thunder // And lightning was desire // This old house would've burned down // A long time ago -- John Prine

I've had it downloaded for ages because I love Richard Osman. Sounds like I should get to it soon.

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

I hadn't heard of it before, and I was only vaguely aware of Richard Osman. I guess the second one set some kind of record for sales? Something.

Anyway, haven't seen Only Murders in the Building yet but from the ads I can see where there might be kinship

Things to know about Richard Osman:

He is very smart.

He is very tall.

I had no idea of the tallness. Okay!

There's a 45 minute conversation included at the end of The Thursday Murder Club between him and another author whose name I didn't catch but she wrote The Grown-ups, I think? It's also a good listen. So at this point that is mostly how I know him, I suppose.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

My hold came in at the library so I just started Thursday Murder Club last night. I'm quite enjoying it so far.

We are Buffistas. This isn't our first apocalypse. -- Pix

I like the Paladin books but I really want more Swordheart as well!

Agreed, Consuela. Beartongue meantioned "swords" in Paladin's Grace, so now I want to know what happened.

I have faith we will get more swords. I’m being very patient about it.

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

Well, there are two more swords out there ... they deserve their own books.
