For a split-second, while looking at the publishing schedule, I thought to myself, "shit, I guess I skipped the 30th! It's already the 1st now." Then I remembered that February just ended. πŸ˜†

The book I was singing paens to yesterday, I'm irritated with today. The author seems to have taken the second chapter into a completely different direction which is just sooooo boring to me. I do not give a rats arse about the commune living of the 1960s or 70s or whatever and why they failed.

But, I bet there'll be a good reason for why this is such an important topic to cover. I'm very hopeful that what will come out of this is not just American navel-gazing but something of substance. So, we wait.

Meanwhile, I've ordered a hardcover copy of this book from Half-Price Books. I'm loathe to buy a new book when there are so many awesome pre-loved ones to adopt. Whenever possible, I buy second hand. That said, when I'm in a book store, I can't stop my itch and I always come out with a few brand new books. I recently bought a book that's been on my TBR for a very long time - Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I got book 1 of the 2 book series and I'm looking forward to diving into the Iranian Cultural Revolution and its aftermath from the eyes of a 9 year old. I also got a bit of speculative fiction, which is always a hit or miss, so I'm not going to mention it till I read it.
