Also recently read was Terry Pratchett's _Thud!_. I so like Vimes.
I have gone back to comfort reading -- I started to reread Georgette Heyer's _Cotillion_, but my mother picked it up and I have to find where she left it. In the meantime, I am on my sixth reading of Ryk Spoor and Eric Flint's _Boundary_, which is coming out in March.
It's been more than two weeks since we got an update in the PBEM game. Whimper. Whine. Offers of chocolate.
I am very glad to have a warm cloak. The temperature at my desk today hasn't broken 70. They will probably switch over to heat soon -- but that takes at least a couple of days. In the meantime, I have my cloak.
