Assorted books and blather

I finished re-reading The Woman in White yesterday and am happy to say that my fond memories were justified. I'll review it later, but Wilkie Collins had a mind for details, organization, and tying up loose ends.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - Oh, how many years since I read Pirsig? Reading the article makes me want to revisit this one.

Time for another trip to the library, and one book that I want is Marking Time, the Vol. 2 in the Cazalet Chronicles...before all of those characters begin to fade from my mind.

Finished all but one of the books on my list for the Stacks Challenge. The one book unread is The Haunted Bookshop - which I included in my Stacks list because it was ordered in September, and I counted it as "in my stacks." However, Amazon eventually shipped all of the other books...with this one exception, although I continue to get email updates, I do not have the book.

Watched Disc 2 of Firefly Sunday night. :) Now awaiting Discs 3 & 4, and the movie; love that Netflix que!


  1. Hi JenClair. Thanks for your comment on my blog re Oyeyemi's ICARUS GIRL. I didn't realize you'd left it, so I hope it wasn't too long ago!

    The Firefly series is fab - make sure you watch the whole lot before seeing the movie though (just because it makes for better character development). Now I'm feeling all nostalgic and may have to re-watch the series...!

  2. I guess I'm going to have to add these to my que. I can't believe you still don't have a book you ordered in Sep. That's really bad.
