I Wish I Could Find Time For This

You can listen to a live discussion with Kazuo Ishiguro thanks to the English publication The Guardian. Ishiguro's marvelous book Never Let Me Go was one of this year's Alex Award winners. The Alex Awards are given each year to ten adult books that appeal to teen readers.

Unfortunately, the conversation is thirty-nine minutes long, and that's a long time to sit next to my computer staring into space. Unless, of course, I were to take up knitting or rocking small children while sitting here in the office. No! Wait! I just had a brilliant idea! I'll listen to it tomorrow morning while I'm doing weight work!

Ha! Now you know what I'll be writing about tomorrow.

I Missed This The First Time Around

Tiff at BSC Headquarters is rereading The Baby-sitters Club series, which she says she loved growing up. No info on how old she is now.

I'm wondering if, after I read The Gossip Clique or The Gossip List or The A-Clique or whatever those books are I have waiting for me upstairs, I should read a volume from Baby-sitters Club? Maybe one series led to another? Maybe there's some connection beyond the fact that they are girl-oriented books that Gail has never read?

Thanks to Blog of a Bookslut for that link, too.
