“There's more to life than just books, you know. But not much more...” - The Smiths

As some of you know from Facebook, I'm preparing to go back to school soon. Hence, not much time for blogging. But right now it's full-on winter, and I think it's about time to dip into the massive stack of fiction I've been hoarding for blizzardy days. Yesterday I snagged the second-to-newest House of Night book and A Lion Among Men at a secondhand bookstore. I also have the Gormenghast trilogy, a pile of Peter Straub novels, Mockingjay, and the new reprint of John Crowley's Little, Big.
On the nonfiction front, there's Errol Morris's book about the MacDonald murder case, and two books about the Meredith Kircher case.
"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom." - Albert Einstein
