Yesterday I got an electronic reminder to pick up a book I'd requested from the Vancouver Public Library. I'd forgotten I'd ordered it, because it's the second in the millennium trilogy by Stieg Larrsen: The Girl Who Played with Fire. While checking it out, I commented to the woman at the desk that I hadn't yet read the first book, because the waiting list is so long at the library. She advised me to go to the section that has mystery books in paperback, and look under L. I did, and lo and behold there was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. So now I have these two humungous books to read in just a few weeks. Meanwhile, I'm still in the process of printing out that never-to-be-done-with play, and reading juvenile books, and writing articles for Suite 101 and Squidoo and a YA novel for Lorimer before they forget about me. With all this reading and writing to do, when am I ever to get any exercise?!
