I didn’t do much posting this week which is ironic because I’m caught up on my reviews but for some reason I didn’t find the time to post anything much. I finished Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (amazing), Emily and Einstein by Linda Frances Lee (fun), and I’m about half way through Fathom by Cherie Priest (interesting) so while the posting was slow, the reading was good.
Being honest, this will probably be rather short today too because I want to go to the Hirshhorn Museum to see an exhibit by Blinky Palermo. At some point this week I will get some blog karma back and return to normally scheduled things though. Admittedly, I’m a bit overscheduled so once that clears up all will be well.
Some more sharing…
Middle-earth According to Mordor – Salon article about a Russian author who re-tells the Lord of the Rings from the evil perspective.
Chicago Tribune article about the killing of the Dewey Decimal System – it seems my library or at least certain portions of it are going along with the trend.

If you have an e-reader and don’t want people to know you’re reading it, you can make this nifty cover.

I can’t decide what to do about that Lord of the Rings retelling. It looks interesting but I think I’m going to be annoyed by the portrayal of Gandalf.
I’m not sure I’m going to read it either but I will admit to a rather annoying curiosity about it.
I’ve been posting in spurts lately too, so I totally understand.
The e-reader cover thing is interesting, but I have to say that it would break my heart to cut into a book like that. Plus, then it’d look like I was perpetually reading the same book. But it’s a clever idea to save some money on those e-reader covers which can be ridiculously expensive.
