Prima April Build a page - Say It in vintage
I am re-reading the Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman (love the His Dark Materials trilogy!) and I got an audio cd from the library of Lyra's Oxford. I think it's about Lyra's life after the trilogy is over. So looking forward to listening to it as I knit.
Based on a recommendation by someone's blog (sorry I can't remember whose), I read the first book in Guy Gavriel Kay's Fionavar trilogy and loved it. I got it from the library and then I tried to get the 2nd book but apparently it is misfiled or stolen, and they don't have the 3rd book at all. I requested it via interlibrary loan but now I find out that due to budget cuts, there will be no interlibrary loans any more SO I have been haunting ebay and half.com looking for the cheapest option - finally today I was able to order the trilogy for less than $10 and that includes shipping. I'm excited!!! If you like fantasy and/or time travel, these are for you - I really enjoyed the first one but I warn you - there are lots of characters so when I receive the books, I am going to re-read it before I start the second one.
AND I am also excited - I just got an email that I can pick up the dvd of Black Swan at the library tomorrow - Yay! I have been waiting ever since it came out - I am now on the reserve lists for The King's Speech and The Tourist - 28 and 25 respectively!
Hope you are having a great week! It is very very hot and windy here - prime forest fire season! We are praying for rain! thanks for reading,
