About meI'd spend some time coming up with something clever to say here, but I'd much rather be reading.

About my libraryTo see what I've been reading, use my style, select all collections, and click "stopped." More details will follow whenever I'm done procrastinating.

P.S. Pay no mind to my "Currently Reading" section. I use it to help me make decisions I would otherwise be too weak to make on my own.

Thanks. Behemoth is one of my all time favorite literary characters.

Thank you for signing up for the giveaway of my new kids' book, The Exotics Book 1: The Floating Menagerie (under pseudonym De Kenyon). I just sent an email asking for your format preference--let me know if didn't get it! Thanks, DeAnna
Seeing the Robert Frost Poem was such a flashback for me. I had to memorize it when I was in elementary school. Just now, I realized how much it influenced a poem I wrote later in life. Nice memory.


"Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
"
— Robert Frost
Noticed you liked Girl Interrupted, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's mental illness and also a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thank you very much allthesepieces, it’s kind of a work in progress at the moment, mainly down to Library Thing! :)
Because of all the great recommendations / authors I’ve never heard of before piles of books are growing around us, so we’ve decided to buy more bookcases and paint them to match the walls too … hopefully this’ll mean I can get some more books off the floor and onto my TBR category on LT! I’m hoping to get some new pictures of it soon when it’s finally finished.

I see on your reviews you liked Night Watch, I’ve just finished the audio book of it (I’ve read / heard a few of Pratchett’s books but mainly on audio book, his writing seems really well suited to being read out), and it has to be my favourite of his ‘vimes / guards’ stories, really funny and a great storyline. I love his little social commentaries such as vimes ‘boot theory of socioeconomic unfairness’ :)
(Edited: Tinkering with formatting. Is there a tag that can be used to indent blocks of text?)

Yes, it's
