Week of April 23-29

One rejection. Slow week. Still waiting on some hold requests and revision requests. Part of the business, I guess.

Breakfast went well -- everything was ready in time -- and now I have to cook up some chocolate frosting and make a batch of cornbread, and that's about it for the "have to" category yet today. I would like to get a few things put in the frames we already have for them and hung before the in-laws get here, but I feel confident that they will survive if I don't. It's not that there's nothing to do, it's that there's nothing else I have to do.

Enthusiasm from people at Minicon tipped me over into buying Garth Nix's Mister Monday, and I'm glad I did. It followed Throne of Jade better than most books could: I was able to enjoy Mister Monday for itself and not fuss about it not being Black Powder War (which, for the two of you not following the entirely deserved uproar about naominovik's books, is not available yet). I don't remember who was enthusiastic about Mister Monday and its sequels, except that it was people in the crowd near the door on Sunday -- zwol, madmanatw, howl_at_the_sun, eileenlufkin? I'm almost sure it was neither pameladean nor mgs, but it may well have been one of the people who remain ljless. Anyway, I've gone and added Grim Tuesday to my wishlist, so that can be considered a successful book nudge.

I'm just about to start another book by someone on the friendslist, but I haven't even read the first page, so I can't say how it'll go yet. I'm optimistic, though, or I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.
