I'm still waiting for The Amber Spyglass (I want to review the whole series as a set). So while I'm waiting, I'm also, you guessed it, reading another book.
Flora Segunda by Y. S. Wilce.
It's very amusing so far, but what really did the trick was the author's website: http://yswilce.com/. Even if you haven't read the book yet, it's still pretty hilarious. Especially the Alta Califa, which is a newspaper of utter nonsense. I especially like the quote at the beginning: "Truth is a virtue; lying, an art" (although that may be a quote by some literary genious like Longfellow, I have yet to know).
Anyway, this is my last week before school. So I'm also busy reading the required books :Death of a Salesman, The Great Gatsby, and Wuthering Heights.
And, of course, I'm still waiting for that fickle copy of The Amber Spyglass (it seems whenever I don't want it--it's out there on display at the library, but whenever I do--it's rented out by a slow reader or someone who doesn't like returning library books...)
