On A Lighter Note

Trying to break free of my "anything more than a comic book is too much" mode of late, I actually tried to read a book or two. Started reading Pullman's His Dark Materials series thanks to a generous reader. About 1/3 way through the second one. Pretty good so far.

Since being put on the publicity lists for various publishers I've felt oppressed by the giant number of unread nonfiction books which sit on my shelves. I appreciate receiving the ones I do as they occasionally are useful and timely references, but the fact is I'd be much more likely to actually read and review fiction. I read too much nonfiction, or at least purported nonfiction, as it is.
