Chitchat / Currently Reading (Mar. 17)

Chitchat (25)

Guess what? I got a job! Well, technically it’s the SAME job (data entry) with the same company, but it’s a new season and a few more months of income, so YAY!

This means that I’ll be absent from the internet again until the weekends, but don’t worry: I’ve scheduled posts for the next week and a half, and if I can keep up with my writing schedule I’ll be able to schedule weeks more posts over the next few Sundays. I may not be on Twitter a lot, and I may take even longer to reply to comments/emails than I do currently, but I’ll still be blogging! Yay again!

In other news, I’ve fiddled with the coloring of my blog. It’s the same theme, same general layout, but I’ve tweaked a few things. Let me know if anything’s broken, okay?

I won a copy of A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent by Marie Brennan from Word for Teens a little while ago, and I’m currently about halfway through it. It’s great! I love anything with dragons, and fantasy history is a favorite sub-genre, too. A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world’s preeminent dragon naturalist. She is the remarkable woman who brought the study of dragons out of the misty shadows of myth and misunderstanding into the clear light of modern science. But before she became the illustrious figure we know today, there was a bookish young woman whose passion for learning, natural history, and, yes, dragons defied the stifling conventions of her day.

Here at last, in her own words, is the true story of a pioneering spirit who risked her reputation, her prospects, and her fragile flesh and bone to satisfy her scientific curiosity; of how she sought true love and happiness despite her lamentable eccentricities; and of her thrilling expedition to the perilous mountains of Vystrana, where she made the first of many historic discoveries that would change the world forever.

  1. Congratulations!! That is very exciting. Will you use your dollars to buy thousands of books? Every time I’ve ever gotten a job one of my first thoughts has always been, What books can I buy to celebrate? :p

  2. I came to your blog and I thought I noticed something different but I couldn’t quite figure it out. I like this new look. And yay to more hours of work! That means more money for more books, right? 😀

    Enjoy your read this week 🙂
