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!
