Just finished The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter. Strange little book.

And ChefJune, I'm reading Nora Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck. She has some remarks about Craig Claiborne, among lots of great, funny stuff re living in NYC. Also does purses, hair, husbands, apartments -- her neck. She's too much.

Just got done reading "Eternal" by Cynthia Leitich Smith. It's a good paranormal/romance novel.

I got the first book from my latest order today. It's the first book of a trilogy that I haven't read by one of my very favorite authors, Alan Dean Foster. I'm thrilled, I haven't seen a new ADF in many, many years, so I'll be ordering the other two books in the next day or so. The title of this one is "Phylogenesis".

Just finished The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It was wonderful. I devoured it. Don't have anything in the wings at the moment, but I'm going to the library tomorrow and will probably come home with an armload of goodies.

I'm reading Prodigal Summer by Kingsolver. Not enjoying it near as much as the other books I've read by her, not sure why.

"Light In Watercolor" and "A Photographer's Guide To Portraits"

I'm on an art kick, and trying to cram as much as possible into this tiny brain!

Just starting a mystery by Sister Carol Anne O'Marie. I love her books about an older nun, Sister Mary Helen, who always get involved in some kind of murder case.
