It’s been a while.

Sorry about that.

I started an awesome new job at the tail end of February and I think I’ve only read 3 or 4 books since that time.

Bad librarian, BAD. Go to your corner!!!

The good thing about spring finally showing up is sunlight and warmth. I’ve been telling my husband for years that I’m solar-powered and it’s true, I’m more productive when it’s warm and sunny outside. When it’s cold and damp I can only crawl under a blanket and play Candy Crush. Oh, you don’t know about Candy Crush. It’s a game, a very addictive game. A great and terrible game. Spare yourself the frustration of level 65 and just skip it. Walk away, folks. Unless you NEED a huge time-suck, this is not the game for you. I love it and hate it much the same way as I love/hate Steven Moffat.

 

What am I reading?

I’m working my way through the second book of the Hangman’s Daughter series.. The Dark Monk. I just finished Scent of Magic (well worth the wait, but now I’m impatient for book 3). I started Sharp Objects (Gillian Flynn) quite some time ago, but I seem to have misplaced my copy. Whoops. I’m also getting ready to start Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Sometime in the last 2 months I saw a Google News headline that read “On this day in xxxx, Ian Fleming discovered penicillin.” As a medical librarian, I LOL’d. Ian Fleming? Really?? Was that before or after the James Bond books? Can I expect Chitty to be horrible because he was busy discovering penicillin? Ladies and gentlement of The Guardian (the writers of the offending headline), Ian Fleming did not discover penicillin. You’re thinking of Alexander Fleming. Not quite the same, but I still get the giggles when I think about it.
