And welcome to the middle of May. Thank goodness the temperature has dropped back to Seattle normal, in the mid-60’s
This is our first Spring/Summer in Seattle. Apartments (and houses) do NOT have air conditioning here. Everyone says we don’t need it. Except last week, when Seattle and Phoenix were the two hottest cities in the continental US. And we DID.
In book news, the Sookie Stackhouse series is over. I read Dead Ever After this week. I wasn’t planning to buy a copy, because the last few books weren’t all that fantastic, but then I read the screaming fits that people were having, and I decided not to wait.
The book is fair game. It’s entertainment, and it’s out there to be reviewed. (My review will be posted on Monday at Book Lovers Inc.) Some of the comments about egging Charlaine Harris’ house, and worse, seem one stake too far. (And no, we are not related.)

Review: The World’s Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne (author tour)

What are you looking forward to this week?
