Sure and worse. But I am not a germaphobe. To quote hubby: bacteria have rights too.

I love libraries but I would rather not known where the books have been. :P

I may have gotten a Kindle as an early birthday present :shuffle: Have so far taken advantage of freebies at "Kindle on the cheap" on facebook....but first thing being read is a collection of Sherlock Holmes (some of which I have read years ago)

... So I ordered ... The Night Circus for myself.

I'm about 80 pages into that one now. Loving it so far! Weird and wonderful and unique. I've tried to describe it to a few people but just can't -- it's easier to give them a link to read the blurb for themselves.

And I just spotted that Elizabeth George's latest, Believing the Lie, is due out on Jan 13. There were 7 people already ahead of me in the library queue, but they should order multiple copies so I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long. I also hope Ms. George gets back to her former high standard -- she was getting close with the last one (The Body of Death), but still not quite there.

High standard? You are joking, right? She's one of the worst hack mystery writers out there.

I like Barbara Havers. But Deb and Simon annoy me, and I practically laughed when Helen was murdered.

Barbara is pretty much the only reason I read these books -- and my favourites in the series are the ones that feature her most prominently. Thankfully Deb and Simon haven't had a lot of emphasis for a while (I was really ticked off that the one set in the Channel Islands was all about them, since I love that setting, and particularly anything to do with the occupation).

2/3 through The Night Circus now. Really enjoying the magical aspect, can't wait to finish!

I, for some reason, decided to read the third book in the Forest of Hands and Teeth series. While I love the PREMISE of the books, the execution and storytelling get me so :mad:
It's not a trilogy per se, more like different stories with some of the same people. The problem with this is that the first two books ended with a lot of questions, very few of which are answered. (especially from the first to the second book, which had a 20 or so year gap between events)

And the third book is a complete idiot plot: if the characters weren't idiots, there would be no plot.

And yet. I continue to muddle and gnash my teeth. I wish the main character would get eaten by a zombie already.

My Night Circus is now with a coworker. I expect it to reappear quickly since she's a fast reader. I have another coworker who's the slowest reader in the universe - she's got my Game of Thrones books. I'll see them probably about the time Martin finishes the series. :P

I used to love the library when I was a kid, but after cleaning one too many children's books when my son got his library card, I gave up on it. Too many strange things in the middle of books at my local library (and that includes 'grown up' books too)... :shuffle:
