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:

  • The Operator by Kim Harrison -- if there's a version of Earth in the Multiverse where this blog is a force in publishing, Harrison's Peri Reed Chronicles is a best-selling juggernaut (hopefully, it's neither the one that Walter-nate or Dr. Zoom is from). Anyway, book 2 is out now, and you should read it.
  • The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher -- I'm not sure I need another memoir from Fisher after Wishful Drinking, but then again -- why not? I've also read most of her novels -- Fisher's a far better writer than an actress, and is one of the funniest authors around. I have no idea what she'll say in this one beyond the Harrison Ford stuff, but it'll provoke more than a few laughs.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to annmariemcqueen1.
