sleepy, awww


Things go, if not well, at least swimmingly.

Went to (great) aunt and uncle's fiftieth wedding anniversary tonight. (Great added to stop others from having inflection's confusion on the matter when I mentioned it.) It was very nice. We're going to have to have a nice shindig like that for my grandparents, when they reach fifty in 2010. (The uncle in question is my grandmother's brother.)

I think I have all the baseball card commons in the box which is designated for holding such items. A lot of my cards were in good shape when I put them in storage ten years ago, but alas many are now teh suck since they were stored improperly. However, I found a couple nice gems, like Randy Johnson's rookie card. I won't complain too much.

Still much to do and no time, and I find myself conflicted about several issues, but there is nothing new under the sun.

G'night world.

the great book recommendation thread.

Okay. I threw this question on IRC, but I'll throw it here too. There's got to be somebody out there who's got an answer or two or six.

We'll leave alone any question of genre at the moment (although I like my fiction more in the science fiction/fantasy department) and simply throw the table wide open.

What books would you recommend? Books that are your favourites, books that are timely, books that mean the world to you fifteen years later...any book at all. Just toss me a few recommendations. 'Cause I'm looking for good books to read, and the best way to find new books is to ask friends what they like. Anything goes here, if it's readable, it'll count as 'book' in my mind. :) [yes, comic books and graphic novels count in 'books'.]

So help me out here and recommend a book or twenty. ;)

[still need a good bibliophile icon, yes.]
