Just a few things worth mentioning:
The latest issue of Estella's Revenge is all ready and very spiffy-looking. You can read my review of The Secret Lives of People in Love by Simon Van Booy, here. Congrats to Andi and Heather on another terrific issue!
I can't remember if I've mentioned Daily Lit, a site where you can sign up to receive daily excerpts of various works by email. Last night, I got so caught up in the reading of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself that I kept sending for excerpts until I'd read 15 of them. And, then the 16th didn't show up because of an email snafu, so I took a bath. While it's a little uncomfortable reading off a computer screen for long, it's a nice option.
Here's a recap of what I read in April:
The Moon on a Stick - Valerie-Anne Baglietto
In the Cut - Susannah Moore (not recommended)
20th-Century Ghosts - Joe Hill
The Sex Lives of Cannibals - J. Maarten Troost
Start Late, Finish Rich - David Bach (not recommended, although certain portions are useful)
Don't Kiss Them Goodbye - Allison DuBois
Earthly Joys - Philippa Gregory
The Secret Lives of People in Love - Simon Van Booy
The Ladies of Grace Adieu - Susanna Clarke
Most were very enjoyable reads. I have recently added a link to my 2007 reads in my sidebar and plan to eventually update the page to include books read in 2005 and 2006 and, hopefully, add a bit more information. At this point, it's just a list that includes title, author and number of pages.
The animal life avoided me, today, apart from a lizard. Darn. It was a really cute lizard, though. Here's a closeup of his cute little reptile face:
I love that shade of green. There is another lizard hanging out with this fellow in or around our herb garden (a light brown one) and I'm guessing they're a couple. Awwww, how sweet.
