An Awful Lot of Walking

Lately I've been doing a lot of walking (I also considered calling this post "You Can Walk On for a Long Time," after a Johnny Cash song - one of the few I've actually heard). I usually carry a few [dozen] books in a cloth bag, as I did this time, seeing as my trips are generally book-related. Today it was slightly wet out, but not unpleasantly so. I like the way yellow-green leaves on trees look in the rain, if you know what I mean. Nature is fun to look at during or shortly after showers. Anyhow, I went to the Cary Library and hung out for a while. I stayed for a bit in the "silent" room, where a lady in the back had her computer sound on for over five minutes with no attempts whatsoever to turn it off. I've been reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which is brilliantly, randomly hilarious. In the end I checked out two audiobooks: Rowan Hood and The Amber Spyglass, along with Holly Black's story collection The Poison Eaters. I talked to Holly on Facebook once, but now I want (NEED) to meet her in person, after I heard that Hannah and Printz did. They're starting up pretty soon, Printz (a book club). I just hope they do that again. They better.

I have a story that needs heavy editing, and I need to watch more Doctor Who. Still on Episode 3.... Also, my father is telling me to take a shower. So, I'll post later. Maybe.

Happy reading,


  1. Unfortunately, I heard that Printz won't be going to ALA this summer, and probably not for a year or two after that either.

    Rowan Hood sounds cool, though. I'll check it out once I'm through with this monstrous pile of library books sitting on my bed...

  2. Yes, I heard. Very suckish. I'll find a way.

    Yes, a friend told me about it last summer. I have the same problem!
