2 Weeks' reading

Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It - Maile Meloy 
    Excellent domestic drama short stories.  I can see why it made everyone's best of 2009 list.
A Hat Full of Sky - Terry Pratchett 
    Second in the Wee Free Men series.  I'm gonna read these to my girls because the protagonist is exactly the kind of girl I want them to be.
Making Room: Finding Space in Unexpected Places. - Wendy Adler Jordan  
     It's no House of Leaves, but I'm a sucker for keen little nooks and crannies design, lost spaces and found rooms.
Saturday Night Hat: Quick, Easy Hatmaking for the Downtown Girl - Eugenia Kim 
     That pretty much says it all.  I want a cloche hat that actually fits so I think I'm going to have to make mah own.
The Alternative Hero - Tim Thorton
     An actual real live bassist writing a love story to his favorite early 90's Brit Alternative bands.  There is plot, but it is thin, yet I didn't mind a bit.
Feed - M.T. Anderson
     In the future, the internet will be jacked into our heads.  But it's the AOL kind of internet that blasts ads into your head 24-7.  
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow - Jessica Day George 
     Classic fairytale.

Watching: Sopranos season 3. Yes, I'm a little late to the party but it is still amazingly good.  Am walking around talking in an Italian accent all of a sudden and ordering capicola at the meat counter.  LOL Iowans call it "hot ham".
