Hi! I'm a native New Yorker working in higher education.
Congratulations on your promotion.
Thank you asking about my dog, Frodo. He's doing okay, but still has diarrhea. I have to feed him boiled chicken and white rice. He's on some pills that the vet gave me. He's had this many times, because he picks up garbage on the street. He'll be alright in a few days.
Hey Karece, On the hosting list - which David is it that follows Raj?
Hi Karece, Welcome to the group, see you next month at Sleeping Beauty, thanks for suggesting it :)
The KGB Bar has monthly readings by science fiction, fantasy, and horror writers on the 3rd wednesday of each month. You can go to kgbfantasticfiction.org to see upcoming readings. This month has John Kessell and S. G. Browne on 10/17/12 at 7pm
The following synopses is from AmazonThe first installment in Jasper Fforde’s New York Times bestselling series of Thursday Next novels introduces literary detective Thursday Next.
Fans of Douglas Adams and P. G. Wodehouse will love visiting Jasper Fforde's Great Britain, circa 1985, when time travel is routine, cloning is ordinary, and dodo's are pets. Thursday Next is a library detective. She is called to investigate when Jane Eyre is kidnapped.
Hi Karece, I've noticed a curious trend in fantasy lately. It's books starring Ltbrarians as heroes. The books titles are as follows: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, World Soul by Liz Williams, and the most recent, Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines. As a suggestion for a future discussion, I would like to read The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. This is the forst book in the Thursday Next series. This is the book that started the trend.
I was thinking the Diamond Age, by Neil Stephenson. Do you think 500 pages is too long?
Hi, maybe we can discuss the November meeting, tomorrow?
So, I was thinking I could take November, if the other possible host didn't want it. Cohosting would be fine by me, but if the other person has a book they want us to read, no worries. I'll just join the rotation for next time.
