Day 03 – Your favorite recent book

*looks despairing* This would be easier if I’d read more than seven books this year, all of which I quite liked. I may have to go with Jack Campbell’s THE LOST FLEET: VICTORIOUS, which is the final book in the Lost Fleet series, which are military SF that do exactly what they say on the box. I have enjoyed them probably beyond their actual literary value because of that, but since there’s not much more you can ask for in books, yeah, I think that might be my favorite recent book.

Close runner-up, though, is Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge’s SHADES OF GRAY (sequel to BLACK AND WHITE), which is a superhero novel and also does exactly what it says on the tin to a very satisfactory level. That, it seems, is what I’m looking for in books right now. :)

New flickr set

I’ve started a new Flickr set, not of great shots or anything, but just snapshots taken around Dublin. I’ll put ‘em behind the cut to spare the friends-list, but bigger versions are available as click-throughs…

And not-a-Dublin-picture, but real darn cute anyway: I was taking pictures of us and gave him a kiss and he turned his head to give me a kiss back just as I took the picture. :)
