*picks book back up after several weeks of reading other stuff* Five pages on the proper way of eating Captain Crunch cereal. *puts book back down* Are you fucking kidding me. Stephenson? Captain Crunch needs this amount of verbiage in your 1100 page spy/mystery novel?

LenaLena is 61% done with Lending Light (Gives Light #5)
I thought it would be kind of lame to read the same story as Gives Light from another POV. But I was the wrongest person to ever be wrong. WRONG I tell you.

This has a fragile beauty that has sucked me in completely. I already know I will be rereading Gives Light after this.

It wasn't, he swore, that he picked up so many women. Compared to Ivan, he was practically celibate. It was just that he never put any down.

Our exchange student from Denmark had his first day of school today. His junior English class is going start reading The Scarlet Letter. Way to kill a teen's desire to read, local High School! We feel sorry for the kid and recommended the Cliff notes.

On the other hand, we had a lively dinner table discussion on misogyny in literature and if this was the worst book ever written.

I have weak spot for Gregor, he's probably my second favorite character in these books.

It's fun to see the bits that Stephenson has obviously gotten from Hodges' Turing biography used in a completely different way.

Cryptonomicon

LenaLena
LenaLena is on page 391 of 608 of Alan Turing: The Enigma
Seems to me that Turing had a form of Aspergers, by the way he typically bumbles through social interactions. This book, written in 1983, is not going clear that up for me, I am afraid.

It's been a year since Daron talked to Ziggy. For him, but for me too. It's been a year since the post went live where Ziggy dove off a stack of amps and was shipped off to rehab. Tomorrow, they will be in the same room and talk... O.O



There you have it, the torture and the delight of following a long running web serial.

Last chance to support the Daron's Guitar Chronicles second paperback omnibus kickstarter. We're only $589 away from some very nice stretch goals, like paperback editions of all the ebooks. Go Daron!

The finances of Daron's Guitar Chronicles. Is it weird that I love the series even more now?

I haven't read a single book in the month of February. In fact the only book I have read this whole YEAR was a drunken buddy read of Frog with Kate. I have started a bunch of books, but finished none. All I seem to be able to handle is fanfic. What happened to me?

Damn paper books and their need for me to wear reading glasses. I look like my mother when I wear glasses....

Since when did you talk to the law?" demanded Leonora in Shanghainese. "Since his nobility's been fucking it. You want the shortarse on your side."

Oh Merrick, you have such a way with words. You should write poetry.

LenaLena is 69% done with Easy Ryder
I know.... So you said... yeah, you mentioned that.... Yeah, I got that the first few times you told us.... This book could be a solid little novella if the author had just trusted the reader to remember what Ryder tells us the first time he mentions it. I tell myself I can't start Bone Rider until I finish this, so I'll keep going.
