New books, new fuzzies

1900 words. Just enough to push it over 30K. :) I figure I must be around halfway done now, though it's always hard to tell how long scenes will end up being before you write them.

I found out that Meredith Ann Pierce's Firebringer trilogy has finally been re-released. I've loved the first book for years, but the other two were out of print and cost like $200 US to get a copy, so I've never read them. Of course, I had to run off (in a virtual sort of way) and purchase them, and I couldn't help picking up some others along the way. Most YA, mostly urban fantasy (and let me tell you, it's hard finding well-written YA urban fantasy), keeping in mind my current project:

Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones
Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block
Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood by Meredith Ann Pierce
Dark Moon by Meredith Ann Pierce
The Son of Summer Stars by Meredith Ann Pierce
Edward Eager's Tales of Magic Boxed Set
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut
The China Garden by Liz Berry
The Catalogue of the Universe by Margaret Mahy (I wanted to get her The Changeover, which I remember reading and liking when I was a teen, but it seems to be out of print)
The Ivory and the Horn by Charles de Lint

Dammit, there needs to be a Bookaholics Anonymous. I've got enough to last me until at least the end of the year, and I will undoubtedly buy a ton more before the year is out. But at least I won't get bored. ;)

The new fuzzy (ferret), Skip, is home and fitting in quite nicely. I will take and post pics tomorrow when I can get some decent lighting. He's a big softie.

And I'm sleepy. 'Night.
