I have the most wonderful to-read pile at the moment, and perfect
timing too, as I've just (last week) finished my B.Arts/Education
I've just finished reading Anansi Boys (as always, fiendishly observant
and well written), am about to read The Eyre Affair. Recently I've read
McKinley: Beauty (difficult to empathise, great content), Sunshine (my
first vampire novel, well written, enjoyed but with reservations), and
Rose Daughter (better written than Beauty, though I like Beauty's
content better...). I have Spindle's End awaiting the end of Jasper
Fforde, and 1632 or whatever-it-is after that. I have also read 'Where
Is My Cow," by Pratchett and wanted children immediately so I could
read it to them.
After so long holding off reading, I'm making up for time!
To read (possibly in the bookshop):
Isobelle Carmody's new 'Alizon Whitestarr' which looks great but has to
wait till I can afford it.
Ptolemy's Gate (same deal).
Thud! by Terry Pratchett
And yes, due to old and persistent loyalty: the *penultimate* WOT,
Knife of Dreams, by Robert Lazy Jordan. One more to go, people.
I have also recently seen a production of Pratchett's Interesting
Times, performed by the Brisbane Arts Theatre, with some really spot-on
characterisation for the Silver Horde (Cohen is fabulous) and
Rincewind. If you're here, go see it if you can. I've seen Howl's
Moving Castle again, and then I saw Pride and Prejudice, which was the
most stunningly gorgeous thing I've seen in a long while, my aversion
to Keira Knightly and loyalty solely to the BBC production completely
Anybody in Australia, or more specifically Brisbane, know how I can get
my eyes on the American version though? Apparently there's something
different to the UK/Aust version and I really want to see it.
Going off now to do some more art, or applying for jobs, or something.
Anyone else here doing Nanowrimo?
This is the *life*.
