It didn't take long to finish my last read, A Gift for the Kubna: Fire-Rider Book I: (The Cotrite Chronicles I) by Victoria Hay. It was only 54 pages long, after all, and not long pages at that. It's the first instal…

by Victoria Hay This is a review copy I received from the author; I think it may be listed on Amazon as _A Gift for the Kubna: Fire-rider, Book 1_. The Fire-Rider books are being published as a series of short ins…

[[Hmmm. While I've been able to accept the frequent occurrence of women using male pseudonyms to get their works published - this has been an unfortunately-necessary tradition since the days of the Brontes if not before…

Aw, thanks, solittletime and Moem! I'm not a very consistent member these days, drifting in and out as life ebbs and flows, I'm always drawn back and always delighted to see familiar names. (I almost said "faces"...lol) …

Last week, I dropped by, tried to log in, and had to change my password. After I was in, I went to my profile and changed it. Today, again, I tried to log in and couldn't, not with the password I entered, not with the…

I've just started this audiobook, and I think I'm a little over an hour in. So far, I'm enjoying it.

My mom recommended this to me. I've got it on request at the library, but no idea when my name will come up. I'll be interested to know how you like it!

I logged out shortly after I posted that last message. Two days ago, I went to the login page and tried to log in - and couldn't. I thought about doing the password reset routine once more, but decided I'd have to do it …

Thanks, vedranaste! I've checked the email address in my profile each time I've gone in there to change my password, and I'm still getting BookCrossing emails there, but that's a good one to check. I'm not sure what …

Thanks, Moem. I kind of hope the problem is on my end, and not sitewide, and that is the most logical explanation. I'll keep digging on my end, and see what I can discover.

After my last post, I changed my password, logged out and back in again to make sure I had it right, and logged out before I left. Today, I came back and tried to log in using the form at the top of the page. I was ta…

edited by Justine Larbelastier and Holly Black. Anthology of YA unicorn and zombie stories, with verbal (well, printed) sparring between the leaders of Team Zombie and Team Unicorn before each story. Or, at least, I'm…

Gorydetails, thanks! After I changed the password, I was able to log myself out and log back in immediately, but I didn't think to stay logged out and try much later, like the next day. I'll do that (if I remember, *s…

A YA anthology edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier, on audio cartridge. The first story, "High Justice" by Garth Nix was pretty good, though a few times I found the reader's accent tricky to follow and had to…

This is a bit long, but I'll try to hit the high points: A while ago, I returned to BC after a long break. I couldn't log in, so I got a password reset. 1. I logged in using the new password. A few days later, I'd …

_Zombies vs. Unicorns_, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbelastier., in audio format. I listened to the introduction yesterday, and it was a stitch! I'm really looking forward to the first story, which I was going to…

Ha! I discovered when I put it in the reader yesterday that not only is there an audio of it, but it's read by five different individuals, male and female - AND that the company that recorded it allowed the Library of Co…

I actually finished one yesterday, _Victory of Eagles_ (The Temeraire Adventures, book 5) by Naomi Novik. Read by Eric Sandvald (I think; he didn't spell it out), whose narration rubbed me entirely the wrong way at first…

Oh, I enjoyed that one! It read like the start of a series to me, but I don't know whether he did any more of them or not. I really, really liked the characters and their conflicted feelings toward one another.

I don't think I've posted in one of these in about a month, due to some password...issues, but it really hasn't changed all that much, thanks to going out of town for a week and the associated preparations and recovery. …

The Beastmaster - Andre Norton Victory of Eagles (Temeraire, book 5) - Naomi Novik Survival of the Fittest - Jonathan Kellerman I'm enjoying all three, just wish they were a little more portable!

I was on the computer for a while, so I knocked off another chapter of The Beastmaster, by Andre Norton. Things are really heating up! I try to read a full chapter at a time. I only wish I knew how many chapters were lef…
