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 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!!!
