I haven't been writing, but I have been reading. After seeing HP 7.5 I felt the urge to finish re-reading the series. And so...I did! Lords and Ladies is another Discworld adventure. For some reason that one took me a while to get into, but once I did I really enjoyed it. Flash and Bones is another Temperance Brennan novel and follows the usual formula. But you know what? Sometimes it's fun to read a formulaic book. As for Lies, I picked it up at Goodwill not long after Franken was elected senator figuring that if the guy is going to be in the government I should see a little of what he's like. I never saw him on SNL or any of his other shows. The book didn't quite strike the right funny bone for me, but it was interesting nonetheless. And now, I move on to more Discworld.
