Adventures in Bookcrossing

A few recent (and not really all that recent) book releases;

A knitting book on an orange sheep. Obviously.

A rather trippy elephant 

Brussels in with the sprouts

and some buried treasure

Chuck Norris' patronus is Neville Longbottom

I read somewhere that, before Philosopher's Stone was published, an editor insisted that JK make Neville a more prominent character and include him more in the plot.
I don't know if that's true, but if it is, we should find that editor and give them an award for services to fangirls.

Maybe My Fifty

Now, it has to be admitted that I am not by nature a patient woman.
Yet, it is a skill I am honing - with the help of library reserve lists and Steven Moffat. Even Mr. Fforde is pitching in the help me practice, by continually postponing the release date for the new Shades of Grey novel.
Some of you may know that I am rather on a cliffhanger chapter-ending in my personal life as well at the moment; following a recent explosion, I am waiting for the dust to settle, so that I can take stock of what remains.
I remind myself that the story will be so much better if the writers are given time to refine their work.
