The ever-increasing TBR pile...

Thanks for all the advice on the previous post, folks. I have resolved to read all of these, and will try to review them all, even if just in Haiku form. But, yesterday, I got my shipment of Harlequins (The tagline for one reads: "Legally wed, but he's never said, 'I love you.'" That one should be a joy.) Then at the library last night, I picked up, A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison. Where to begin? I'm just lucky that I don't get charged overdue fines. (Shhh...don't tell.) I almost finished the Buffy book. It's pretty interesting, actually...if you're a huge geek! Just kidding, it's pretty fascinating, the in-depth analysis of a television show. Very academic and wonky, y'know, all Jungian Shadow Doubles and whatnot. If you're very into Buffy or pop culture scholarship, it may be worth your time. Otherwise, try the Buffy comics, if you need a fix.

Hi to Rene Lyons! I read your interview on Sanctuary Finest, and I was like, hey, one of my people! Italian-American from New York. Although I'm a bit Irish-American as well. I look forward to your book. Although I dislike Medieval romance, I love Medieval history (it was actually my major for awhile, many years ago). And vampires too!

I should start reading now.
