Library Post, 3/13/2012

Hey, tomorrow is Pi Day; be sure to get your pi(e) stuff ready...

Three books yesterday:

Zoran Drvenkar - Sorry

A group of college friends start a business called "Sorry", providing the perfect apology for you when you can't do it yourself. And then they discover that what one of their clients want to apologize for is a messy (and recent) murder. Looks good.

Jo Walton - Among Others

Walton's semi-fictional autobiography (or is that her fictional semi-autobiography?) about growing up reading fantasy and sci-fi. This is a little older, but I was recently reminded of it.

Catharynne Valente - Habitation of the Blessed

Part one of Valente's "Dirge for Prester John", this is also a little bit older, but it was next to the Walton. I am a little ambivalent about Valente - when she's good, she's very very good, but when she's off she's very very off. We shall see.
