So, this is what it's been like around my house.
I now know why I was so tired last week, and it's spreading through the rest of my family.
I've started listening to audio-books while I'm driving to work and then out to pick up my children from school, which gives me a good hour of "reading" a day. I just finished Roger Zelazny's The Nine Princes of Amber, read by Roger Zelazny. I can see why it's a classic.
When I pitched Finding Meara, even though I'd only read the beginning of the Nine Princes, I'd relate the story as "Roger Zelazny meets Janet Evanovich." I'm happy to say that I wasn't too far off. The mixture of science and fantasy is there, as well as the alternate world, and urban fantasy elements. Also, there's a heavy family theme in Princes, although it's more of an epic fantasy kind of plot. Taking all of that into consideration, I guess it's not surprising I enjoyed the story. Combined with great writing, world building and fun dialogue, I think Roger Zelazny is going to become one of my favorite authors.
Last week's funniest photo is:
This week's post is a little on the long side. I kept finding cute photos and just added them in. I hope no one minds!
|I'm embarrassed to admit, but I'm the clueless dog on the right most of the time.|
|The way of insistent salespeople.|
|This is just too cute a picture.|
|This picture does not make sense.|
The ones made off-planet just aren't as good quality.
A few puns:
|Dandelion - isn't it beautiful!|
|Wouldn't it be helpful if life gave us such obvious signs?|
I have a tie this week between lettuce cat and sarcastic dogs. I really like them both.
Do you like any one photo more than the others?
What have you been reading lately?
