Surprise! I'm Back!

I've got a few minutes of Internet access at a motel in Ithaca, New York. Only a few minutes because I just lost the entire post I'd written using the rest of my time.

We listened to an entire book on CD on the way here, plus I finished a book I was reading and read a bit of Metropolitan Life by Fran Leibowitz.

The audio book was Rowan Hood by Nancy Springer. Not bad. More to follow.

I finished Beige by Cecil Castellucci. (Sorry if her name is spelled wrong. I can't figure out how to reduce this screen and search.) I respect what I think the author was trying to do, but I found the book a little, well, beige. More to follow.

And, finally, Metropolitan Life--appears to be just a lot of humorous bits strung together.

Until I can get to another computer and do some more reading, a la prochaine. (Can you guess where I'm going?)

I really liked Rowan Hood. I'll be looking for those further comments. But I think the several sequels were pretty uneven and a little too precious in spots. (I didn't find the first precious at all, but the addition of a couple of characters changes things in the sequels.)
