The next two weeks are shaping up to be super busy. Not a bad thing considering I have school visits, a trip to Disney to get ready for, and revisions to work on. Did I mention I'm loving my revisions?
Anyway, for the deeper blogging subjects:
- I have a post over on The Spectacle about what should go into the formula for character worksheets for speculative fiction.
- I have a post over on The Enchanted Inkpot about Greek Mythology in Fantasy.
In light of the fact that I have blogged all my deeper matter over on the group blogs, I figured I'd highlight some of the books I've bought as presents recently and books I've bought for myself.
Presents (Eight-year-old girl)
(and here I want to point out the importance of getting to know your bookseller. I went to BookPeople to buy these. I knew I'd get The Lightning Thief, but since my daughter is only 4, I'm not up on 8-year-old girl. So I asked one of the booksellers, Emily, at BookPeople what I should get, and she immediately pointed to Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning by Danette Haworth):
Present (17-year-old boy)
(I know there are lots of good guy novels out there, but he's not a big reader.):
Presents (8-year-old boy)
(He's kind of at that in-between reading stage. I'm working to get him reading longer books):
Books for me (I've been meaning to read these Fablehaven books for a while, and it's like every day I hear more and more about them):
So what have you been buying for presents recently? How about for yourself?
And happy Monday! Hope you have a great week!
