“Libraries really are wonderful. They’re better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit on selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books quietly out of the goodness of their hearts.”

~Among Others, Jo Walton

Which, by the way, is an excellent book.  I very much enjoyed it.  A beautiful homage to all the truly great scifi and fantasy out there.

Reading Gone Girl at the moment.  I called part of it.  We’ll see how it ends.  I don’t know.  None of these people are likable.  I’m never sure how I feel about books like that.  Vaguely angry at the author, I suppose.

The bigger dilemma, book-wise, is where to put all these books in the new compound.  I need to weed.  I need to prune.  I need to part with most of them.  Because honestly, when will I ever re-read most of them?  Keep the special ones, of course, but the rest …

Ah, I’ll start mailing them to people, randomly.  You get what you get.  It may be perfectly nonsensical.  It may be perfectly perfect.  It should definitely be interesting.  Anyone want in?
