I'm getting down to crunch time here. Only a week till the move! Busy with packing and doing all the annoying tasks associated with moving all your belongings a couple hundred miles. And trying to fit in all the "New York" things I want to do one last time.
I don't have much to blog about because I haven't been doing much reading except for Harry Potter. But the fact that I don't have time to read hasn't stopped me from buying lots of books lately. I've been around to my favorite UBSs here and bought:
That's Anya Seton's Katherine (never read her before); The Masqueraders by Heyer (I'm always on the lookout for pretty hardcover Heyers); The Disorderly Knights by Dorothy Dunnett (Lymond Chronicles #3---I read the first two a few years ago and want to finish the series at some point); Bride of the MacHugh by Jan Cox Speas (this is a bit of a classic, isn't it?); Haunted Ground and Lake of Sorrows by Erin Hart (fabulous archaeological mysteries); Second Chances by Sharon Sala (never read her either and someone was saying she was good---Nath, was it you?); Karen Rose's Count to Ten (because I've heard such good things about it); and The Templar's Seduction by Mary Reed McCall (I'm hesitant about this one because the Templars, they bore me, but people are saying it is good).
And then there have been a lot of new books on sale lately that I've had to buy:
Unfortunate Miss Fortunes by Crusie/Dreyer/Stuart, Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Quinn, The Roman's Virgin Mistress by Michelle Styles (oh that title hurts, but I liked her last book and it's ROMAN, so I can't pass it up), Bujold's Legacy (woot!), and Kelley Armstrong's Exit Strategy. I've got some good reading ahead of me.
Um, I think that's it. Because the poor movers really are not going to be happy when they see the huge pile of book boxes.
Oh, and these are the new Tevas I bought yesterday. I was trying to describe them to Twin on the phone last night and she was not understanding what they were like. So here they are. Are they ugly? I like them and they are soooo comfortable. They stay on much better than most flip-flops.
And now I am going to bike to Coney Island and see all of its tacky glory for the last time. ;)
