Got up early and mailed my state and federal tax returns, as well as books to GA, IA, and MI.

Mind you, I came home and found I have to mail another book, but since they waited so long to conform, they can wait until Monday to get mailed, since I ain't getting up early again tomorrow to head back up to the PO.

A search on paperbackswap.com has revealed a complete set of a D&D series I used to swear only one complete set of existed. so, I'm saving credits to get order the full set now, assuming more of my wishlist doesn't pop up.

Been having fun reading Butcher's Captain's Fury, Book 4 of his Codex Alera. Only probelm being it's taken me a while to remember who the hell all these people are; it's been a while since I read the last 3. Still easier to keep track of than Greorge R. R. Martin or Robert Jordan's casts of thousands.

I find it odd eye candy is out in summer clothes when it's 45 degrees today.

Any rate, I need to poop, so I'm outta here.

When you're done with Captain's Fury, can you post it to my wishlist? I have the 3rd book and need to read it, so obviously I need the 4th, too :)

I would, but I got it from the library:(They'd probably frown on my sending it out of state.

Do you read the Dresden books as well?

Yeah, don't have the new one yet though. Waiting for the paperback or the hardcover to come in at the library

If you like Dresden try Rob Thurman's work. Her webpage is http://www.robthurman.net and you can find her in my friends on here as robgodfella.

Hmm, library doesn't have them, so I'm checking used book sites now:)

Looks interesting though.

Have you done Kim Harrison's Hollows series?

Oh yes! I absoloutely love those since I'm originally from Ohio and know the areas she's talking about :). My other favorites include J.D. Robb, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Patricia Cornwall. I've rarely met a book I won't read once, but there are some I read again and again :).

Haven't read Robb or Cornwall, but Hamilton's Anita Blake series seems to be coming out of the slump it was in. (I don't mind erotic fiction, but it was beginning to be all erotic, no fiction. This is why I avoid the Merry Gentry series, since I know the metaplot is going to involve more fairie sex than I really want to know about.)

And yeah, the cincy setting is cool, although I wonder if The Hollows aren't on the Kentucky side of the river;)

I agree with the LKH complaint. When I'm starting to skip through large parts of the book to get to the next plot point....
