I did read a book this week - Mark Charon Newton's Villjamur Nights. It was a solidly good novel - not excellent, for some reasons that I'll elaborate on - and it was dense and took all week to read. But I can't tell you about it right now, because I have to leave to pick up the baby from day care, and I may not be able to tell you about it later because the big kid has a Halloween party to go to. I don't know that I'll be able to tell you about it tomorrow, either, because I'm being dragged off to Ithaca to look at bugs, and then to a pumpkin farm to look at pumpkins (and candy apples! And donuts! Can't forget the donuts!), and then to a different Halloween party. I might be able to write about it on Sunday. We shall see. Meantime, here's a place holder, and some questions for discussion. What plans do you have for All Hallows Eve? Are you dressing up? If so, what as? Are you going out (to a party or to collect candy), or are you staying in to give out candy? Tell me, because I really want to know!
