Reading Update
The Furthest Station (Peter Grant #5.7) by Ben Aaronovitch. Pretty good continuation of the series, but not great. Not sure if it was me or the book, but I kept getting tangled up and having to go back and reread bits.
The Question of the Missing Head (An Asperger’s Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Samuel is an Aspie (of the very male type, familiar to many) who has recently started a business answering questions. He is not a private investigator, which he has to explain to people quite frequently.
The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband (An Asperger’s Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Pretty good continuation of the series – enough so that I’m on the wait list for books 3 and 4 at my library.
Written Off (Mysterious Detective Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman. Pretty good mystery about a mystery author who’s contacted by a man who bears an uncanny similarity to the main character in the mystery series she writes…
Edited Out (Mysterious Detective Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman. I didn’t find the second book quite as enjoyable as the first, but now I’m curious how long the author can sustain this amusingly ridiculous premise.
Asperger’s on the Inside by Michelle Vines. Ok autobiographical account of growing up in Australia with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome. I still can’t complete figure out why this one didn’t work for me. The spectacular overuse of exclamation points was a tiny part of it, I’m sure – it’s hard to read a book that exuberant.

Linkity returns! Well, kind of. Linkity starts to slog through the backlog isn’t as catchy, tho.

Tinker; Wolf Who Rules; Elfhome; Wood Sprites (Elfhome 1-4) by Wen Spencer. A delightful reread!
Kaleidoscope: Ideas & Projects to Spark Your Creativity by Suzanne Simanaitis. It was ok. More focused on making zines than I expected.

Spindle’s End by Robin McKinley. Very good variant of Rumpelstiltskin, in which a fairy accidentally absconds with the princess after she’s cursed. The princess is raised with no idea who she really is. I stayed up too late reading this one. ๐Ÿ™‚
The Illustrated History of Hockey: The NHL Years by Jason Kay & Craig Campbell. Interesting book that spends a page or two on each year of the NHL’s history. I was most interested in the more recent years, so I read this back to front.

Lean linkity times ahead!

I am taking a couple of Thursday evening classes from now until November 16 at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, so expect Linkity to be spotty or nonexistent…

Reading Update
NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman. Excellent (and epic) book that spans the history of autism and autism research up through the present. Highly recommended if you’re autistic, know someone with autism (you do, even if you don’t know you do), or wonder how the hell that antivaccine nonsense got started. That said, at times this book felt a bit unfocused as the author got caught up in backstories – a couple of times I wished I’d jotted down a list of names as I read so I could keep everyone sorted out. Perhaps that was just me and my notoriously bad memory. The book still gets five stars because of being both groundbreaking and sensible. ๐Ÿ™‚

Linkity has had better weeks.

Still waiting to hear whether it’s totaled or not (the rear axle is bent and the frame is not longer in its original shape). I am fine! Which is great! (I was stopped at a red light and was hit at speed by someone who apparently didn’t notice all the stopped cars, only swerving into the ditch at the last moment.) But dammit, I really like(d) this car.

The Delirium Brief (Laundry Files #8) by Charles Stross. Holy crap. O.O This one was a rollercoaster ride. Very intense. And now I have to go see when book #9 is going to come out…
