TSS: July 12

The Sunday Salon.com Holy CRAP it’s the 12th already. Are you sure? It seems to me that July has gone by very quickly for a month with 31 days.

I’m trying to write an essay that’s due on Tuesday and I only have about half a page (out of at least 8) and so this’ll have to be quick and minus a lot of links that’d normally be in here.

I recently read the first three books of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters, and I think I’m in love. The first book is quite good, the second book not so much, but the THIRD! It was wonderful. I’ve got teh forth book checked out from the library already but I’m not entirely sure if we have the fifth and so I may have to go through interlibrary loans or something.

I’m also about a third into the third Detective Inspector Chen book by Liz Williams, and it’s wonderful, too. Also I have to read about three library books because they’re due this week (on Wednesday) but I honestly don’t think I’ll have time.

Also I got a netbook! I’m quick excited, although it’s weird to switch from Mac OSX (my laptop) to Windows (the netbook). I’ve got everything synced up pretty well, however, so I’m very excited for the fall semester to start (though I don’t want the summer to end) so I can carry my netbook around instead of my monstrous laptop again. Huzzah!

  1. I love the Amelia Peabody series. I’ve read most of them over the years but all out of order. So I’m actually going to start again with #1 and read one every few months or so. I’m collecting them via book mooch (slowly as not many folks will post to Australia – but I’ll get there).

  2. I think the Amelia Peabody books just get better as they go along. Some of the last ones in the series are some of my favorite books. I’ve been thinking about reading them again since it’s been a really long time since I went through the series. I read them out of order originally, so it might be fun to get them in order this time around.
