Booklovers

I just (skim)read 12 days' worth of your LJ entries. Hugs to, oh, what seems like about 75% of you. On the other hand, YAYCONGRATS to startron on finishing uni! (Also, I can remember when I'd hit the skip -980 limit after about four days of missing LJ. Nostalgia...but I can't complain, for I am part of the problem, not part of the solution.)

Things I have done: seen Neil Hannon's solo Divine Comedy show in Edinburgh and Derren Brown's Enigma show in Glasgow. In the hottest theatre ever. But they were both amazing, I have to say. Looking forward to the new Divine Comedy album - out next Monday! You'd think I'd have done other things, but...not that I remember, apart from roleplaying.

Things I have read: Loads, obviously. I didn't order anything from Amazon for the whole of my March-April paypacket month, which was very restrained of me, but unfortunately meant I ended up with this at the end of April:

(If you can't see what they all are, there are flickr tags if you click through - I don't think there's a way to pull the tags through here, is there?)

I haven't read all of them, obviously. I read seven of them, but then got sidetracked by new Doctor Who books and the new Trudi Canavan and...yeah, I have a problem. I've read 59 hardcopy books so far this year - I've been keeping track of them using a set on Flickr, which is the laziest way I've found yet. Take a photo with my phone when I've finished, upload it, and then spend five minutes a month sticking them into the set - and it seems to be working so far, I've never still been keeping track in May before. And I've joined Worldcon as a supporting member and downloaded my Hugos packet, which gets me a metric shit-ton of great writing and the ability to vote in the Hugos, for about £40, so I'll have to get on that. (Too much time on my hands, yes, but I do read fast, honest...)

And finally 1: Weird Clouds Look Better From Space (via dakegra, I think).

And finally 2: An advanced course in bookselling, courtesy of Waterstones, Sauchiehall St:

Thanks for the heads up on the new album. I will send my trusty Music Acquisition Specialist (AKA dibsy) after it.

I actually pre-ordered a physical CD! I expect it'll pop up on Spotify too, though.

He opened with The Complete Banker, but he did Tonight We Fly second, which was weird! I'm so used to it being the finale. He finished up with A Drinking Song, heh.

SO GOOD. (So good I'm wondering why I don't have a Derren Brown icon, actually.)
