Bookbits for February 18th, 2010

Can you smell the wind changing, too?  Doesn’t it make you feel a bit like Legolas?  Spring’s coming, my entire garden says so, and it never lies.  🙂

  • Things left behind in books. I suddenly don’t feel so bad about my bookmarks (generally strippenkaarten, the nearest pen at hand, or (unused) tissues).
  • George R. R. Martin has 1200 pages of his next book written. But of course he’s not done yet, so his long-suffering fans will have to wait some more.  I feel like I’m always apologizing on behalf of this author when I have to disappoint another hopeful reader about the next book being pushed back again.
  • QuizDo you speak Chekhov? (I scored 5/10, and considering 8 were total guesses, I count myself lucky)
