Read about a third of Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden this morning.

Note to Self: Library Time. It's intriguing, if sad.

I found Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (Charles Mackay) at that little used-book store in Pennsylvania that I love so much!!!! (EEEEEEeee!) All I had in my pocket was five dollars, and I looked at the sticker, and SERENDIPITY STRUCK LIKE THE HOOVES OF A GALLOPING WILDEBEAST! ...So I took it home with me!Andwelivedhappilyeverafter!

I've already read almost all of it (I borrowed it from my english teacher the week before Finals and it's a wonder I passed any of my classes, but NOW I GET TO SAVOR IT!

HENCE THE CAPITALS!!!

Have finished Moo by Jane Smiley!

I liked it- it was really funny and well done. I didn't quite appreciate the intentionally ackward chapter entitled "Who's in Bed With Whom," but that's mainly because anyone who happened to look over my shoulder when I was reading it at the airport now thinks I'm a rampaging pervert who gets off on scientific terms and old ladies. (*shudder.*)

Overall definitely glad I read it.


(Have also read Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb. I liked it enough. No Seregil/Skif/Silk/especially-sexycaptivating-character, but definitely innovative aspects. And trite aspects too, name-wise.)

I wonder if my little brother would like The Chronicles of Prydain (The Book of Three, The Black Cauldron, The Castle of Llyr, Taran Wanderer, and The High King?)

Note to Self: Investigate used bookstores for these and Rudyard Kipling's Just-So Stories!
