October 2008 log

Probably not complete; I think the reading is accurate, but know I must have watched more than I listed, but have no idea what it might have been. I’m still failing to post here as often as I want to, and still have seventeen drafts here plus one as a draft email, for some reason (if I could get there, I could get here) that may or may not make it into full posts. On the other hand, I had a best days ever (+ two more that would have been if that one hadn’t) and a best month ever in October, which is nice.

Read

The Bone Key, Sarah Monette (own) — not quite what I expected, but enjoyable (read pretty much in one sitting); not something to read right before bed
Lud-in-the-Mist, (own) — started, but got distracted by the library, will hopefully return to it
Foundation, Mercedes Lackey (library) — the first of a new Valdemar series (the Collegium Chronicles?); bland, but there was enough to make me want to read the next
Smoke and Shadows, Smoke and Mirrors, Smoke and Ashes, Tanya Huff (own) — reread because they fit my mood
The Case of the Deadly Toy, Erle Stanley Gardner (library) — reread, I think; had a bad case of “don’t trust them” at the perpatrators
The Magicians and Mrs. Quent, Galen Beckett (library) — liked, with reservations; want the hypothetical sequel
Anathem, Neal Stephenson (library) — started, wasn’t in the mood, will try again later
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (own) — started, decided to read it instead of Anathem, am around where I stalled out before (recognized the Mr Norrell goes to London parts, but didn’t remember the parts before that)
Silver Diamond, Shiho Sugiura, v1-2 (own) — reread v1 and read v2
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, v18 (own) — probably ought to have reread the previous few volumes to make the first part make sense

Watched

Aurora Madturn, LOSALIOS (own) — in the background, mostly
Tsubasa DVD 3 (netflix) — part of, anyway; the dialog was severely rewritten, sometimes changing the meaning of the actions; I’ve seen people complaining about Funimation and bad encoding, but this was the first time I’d noticed anything (and I have a 15-year-old TV and don’t want to think about what it might have looked like on a decent screen)

Acquired

The Book of Lost Things, John Connolly (new) — off the clearance at Borders; I had this from the library at one point; didn’t finish it, but wanted to try again later
Foundation, Mercedes Lackey (library)
Silver Diamond v2, Shiho Sugiura (new)
Anathem, Neal Stephenson (library)
The Case of the Deadly Toy, Erle Stanley Gardner (library)
The Magicians and Mrs. Quent, Galen Beckett (library)

xxxHOLiC, DVD 6 (new)

Tsubasa DVD 3 (netflix) — inexplicably; I wish they had email support.
Agatha Christie’s Marple: Series 3: At Bertram’s Hotel (netflix) — and I really ought to contact them soon
