"Every time I see someone on the bus reading the bible, I want to lean over and tell them ..."

That's not real.

My literary drought came to an end at about 5:14 tonight, when I pulled out the copy of Through a Brazen Mirror by Delia Sherman that I'd received as a Christmas gift. I read it on the bus, I read it walking down the ramp from the stop, I read it in the car as shadowdaddy drove to the theater (so I could have the car while he stayed there and worked). Then I read it at red lights on the drive back. When I got home, I had an urge for Ethiopian food, so I called moriae and invited her to meet me at Mesob, then took the book with me to the restaurant and read it while I waited. (Dinner and the company were both very pleasant, by the way.)

In fact, the book was so good that I almost called it a night so I could keep reading it. Instead, I went to Twice Sold Tales and picked up four books (three Victorian classics and one naughty Japanese picture book), then strolled over to Stitch Central for some sewing. As ever, the company was delightful, and I'm feeling highly energized from my evening. Now all I have to do is NOT pick that book back up and just go to bed, NOW. Must ... resist ...
