Updates: Cards, Clothes, Comics & Books
Kel Wednesday, April 29, 2015My business cards for BEA came in yesterday! Small and simple, but I think they'll do. :)
This past Saturday, I attempted one major session of clothes shopping--and survived. ;) The good news: I found a new pair of sneakers and stumbled upon some good suit separates on sale, thus checking off blazers from my list and contributing to my law school collection. (The clothes are from Boscov's in case you wanted to know.)
Also, in case you didn't know, this Saturday, being the first in May, is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). It's usually the one time a year I hit my local comic store for the freebies and to buy other stuff at 40% off. I'm still on my book-buying ban, so I may need to skip this year, but it's a great way to check out comics without spending a ton (or anything). :)
Jackaby felt more like a suspense novel than a mystery because we only had Rook's limited observations and none of Jackaby's knowledge of the supernatural--similar to the dynamic in Sherlock Holmes. But it was still an enjoyable read. I saw several of the twists coming, and I felt like Jackaby was never as fleshed out as I'd have liked, but it was entertaining enough.
I've been in a bit of a slump again. Extra tiring days at work plus Netflix equals limited page counts. But I am determined to start Dragons next, and not just because its archive date is fast approaching. ;)
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Illusionarium by Heather Dixon! In which, like Alice, a boy from an air city gets sucked into another world full of magic drugs. :)
