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:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone this last week. Here are a few of the better things I read about it:


...and some non-Potter reads

  • Reed Farrel Coleman -- on the Hear Me This Book podcast. I really wasn't impressed with teh host (he derailed Coleman's answers so many times), but I really enjoyed what Coleman had to say.

  • The Right Side by Spencer Quinn -- an injured soldier comes back from Afghanistan and as some trouble adjusting (to put it mildly). This is what I thought about it.
  • The Furthest Station by Ben Aaronovitch -- A Peter Grant/Rivers of London novella, Ghosts and the London Underground -- 'nuff said. If you care to glance at it, here's what I had to say.
  • SAUL by Bradley Horner -- SF tale about a father trying to save his daughter. Horner writes some of the best reviews around, can't wait to see what he produces on the other side of the fence.

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