An Answer, A Game, and a (Semi) Hiatus is Announced

I stopped by the library on my way home today, to return Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (among others). I had wondered whether something of that size would fit into the return slot, and it did - with barely half a centimetre to spare. I made a mental note to think twice should the urge ever strike to borrow one of those really large-size non-fiction books.

One thing I have been amusing myself with lately is the Blogroll Game over at The Hidden Side of a Leaf. So many blogs to explore, and free books up for grabs! It’s a good excuse for blog-surfing, and kudos to Dewey - and her inspiration Michele - for creating it.

The Game will have to be put on hold for a while, as will most everything else around here. It’s one of my two least-favourite times of year: end-of-semester exams. (One down, three to go...) I will keep reading ... some ... but reviews could be another matter. There’ll be a rush in the next few days while I clear the backlog of reading and writing; but after that, to quote Queensland Rail, some delays can be expected. Things won’t return to normal until after the 23rd. Yes, that’s right: my last exam is on a Saturday. At 8.30am!. And it’s the third semester in a row that’s happened to me.

Wish me luck, everyone!

I can understand the bookdrop issue. I'm sure I shouldn't have to tell you though that you would be wasting your breath speaking to the person at the desk!

I was perusing your Banned Book Challenge list and I have to say...if you read any of your E.C. books - go for "Dracula." It's excellent and surprisingly modern. Good luck on your exams!

Which just goes to show that my devious plan to conquer the blogosphere by luring visitors under false pretences is working :-)
