Nancy Pearl - Super Librarian

You can't argue with a book list  starting with Magic for Beginners by Kelly Link.  I love Nancy Pearl's columns about what to read, she's definitely bookish, with a capital BOOK.

Best.Similes.Ever

mood: enthralledenthralled

So to reward myself for successfully finishing this college semester, while working fulltime, while caring for two teenagers ( who don't need your meddling, MOTHER) and their Dad, who admittedly does need meddling...anyway, as my reward I'm reading a very non-educational  and entertaining  fantasy novel,  "Mort" by Terry Pratchett.  From the pen of Mr. Pratchett I give you the BEST SIMILES EVER:

(in describing the fantastical city of Ankh-Morpork)

"So let's just say that Ankh-Morpork is as full of life as an old cheese on a hot day, as loud as a curse in a cathedral, as bright as an oil slick, as colorful as a bruise and as full of activity, industry, bustle, and sheer exuberant busyness as a dead dog on a termite mound."

Pretty Damn Cool

Jan. 29th, 2007 | 06:41 pm

I dutifully gave to the Strange Horizons fundraising drive last fall and got an email in December informing me that I'd won the fundraising sweepstakes. Given my choice of freebies, I gleefully asked for my very own copy of Jade Tiger by Jenn Reese. It came in today's mail! Posted to me from Jenn Reese, her ownself! Autographed, of course. So that is pretty damn cool and has definitely brightened up my otherwise rather glum January.
