Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    We're apparently exposing my Inner Child with This Week's New Releases I'm Excited About and/or You'll Probably See Here Soon:
  • Arf by Spencer Quinn -- The sequel to last year's Woof by the author of the Chet and Bernie Mysteries. Woof was loads of fun, I bet this will be, too.
  • The Worst Night Ever by Dave Barry -- the sequel to last year's The Worst Class Trip Ever should be a hoot if it's 2/3 as good as the first.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Vijayalakshmi Harish and allysonyj for following the blog this week.
