What I’m reading – Stellarnet Rebel by J. L. Hilton, and I just finished Toll-Gate by Georgette Heyer. Meh.

I received the final copy of The Magic Mirror and the Seventh Dwarf, so I promptly posted an excerpt! The book page is here, and has all the info that I know so far about it. It has a link to the excerpt as well. Feel free to leave a comment.

The last time I did this, I was still running Debuts & Reviews, so now when I make my new bookmarks, I will order a new batch of business cards as well, and finally replace those old D&R cards. Please send me your addresses so I can mail you some (tia at tianevitt dot com). I always send enough so you can pass them out. I also have some postcards with a coupon code that is good at Carina Press.

I have a book here that is highly recommended by my sister. It is by Jim Butcher and is called Furies of Calderon. She loves the series so much she has read it multiple times. The only reason I have not started it yet is because it features a 15 year old boy. Sigh. Years ago, I reflected that I was tired of coming-of-age fantasies, and I guess that has not changed. Has any of you read it?

I fired up my Nook today after not touching it for months. It was still almost fully charged! I want to give it to my daughter. But a while back I hacked it, and so before I give it to her I want to hack it back. NookDevs–the place where I got the instructions to hack it–had been offline for a while, but now it’s back.

Drawback–I purchased the Millennium Trilogy in Nook format and I never finished reading the last two books. I got them from Diesel Ebooks, so I might be able to download it in a different format. If not, I guess it will be time to experiment with converting one format to another. Which might require me to hack the DRM…

Speaking of DRM, did you know that many publishers are now selling DRM-free books? Tor has removed DRM, and Carina has never encumbered their books with DRM. It is a growing trend.

Up this week is Not Much. My employer is hosting a convention, and I’ll be there for the next three days. Thankfully, it is in town, but those days are still likely to be exhilarating but exhausting. Time to load up on the vitamins!

What’s up with you?
