Unexpected Magic

I just bought DWJ's new collection "Unexpected Magic" and am enjoying 
it. The only other collection of shorts I have of hers is "Stopping for 
a Spell" which I haven't read yet.

I'm disappointed that there aren't any Chrestomanci stories in it, but 
I know I can just get "Mixed Magic" and have them. I've read "Stealer 
of Souls".

I think once I get through these I'll start a full re-read of all her 
books. That should take me a while. Since I've not read all of her 
books yet, it'll force me to catch up as well. This way I can reread 
the first three Dalemark books before I try "Crown of Dalemark" again, 
which, for some reason, I haven't been able to get into yet.

It also means I get to reread "Dogsbody" - my first DWJ, read 10 years 
ago now!
