I finally got my hands on a copy of Neil Gaiman’s latest, The Graveyard Book (surprisingly, the hold list wasn’t too long at the library). I have thoroughly enjoyed what I’ve read thus far! I know I will want to go back and listen to Gaiman reading the book, which anyone can do for free by going here.
Yesterday was quite productive. I did errands, worked a few hours at Avers, cleaned, made some phone calls and then did a mini-Outlaw Star marathon with Tim (and Sara, when she could duck in). I almost made it through the series but I was seriously tired at about five episodes until the end and had to whimp out. Another time, I suppose.
For those of you using feed readers, I am playing with my sidebar (you can see items recently added to my LibraryThing account once again). More aesthetic changes to come.
One reply on “Ah, the Weekend”
…And the other comment I meant to leave. Yikes! Somehow the news that *The Graveyard Book* is out went in one ear and out the other. (I mean, I had to have heard it was out; I read the author’s blog. But somehow that didn’t register.) Must go put in a request at the library. (The hold line was 16 deep when I did so, but they’ve got four copies and I’ve got plenty to read in the meantime.) Thanks for the reminder.
I don’t know if you’ve listened to Gaiman read his own work aloud before, btw, but he’s one of those authors who is really great at it and has a wonderful voice for it.
