Reading Update
What It Is by Lynda Barry. Very good book about how to get started writing, presented in Lynda Barry’s inimitable style of illustration. This older book covers some of the same ground as Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor, but with less drawing involved. If I had to pick just one, I would definitely go for Syllabus. (Even though Syllabus doesn’t have the helpful Magic and Creative Cephalopod.)

May’s mind is apparently blown from whatever she’s absorbing from The Master and His Emissary there…

Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor by Lynda Barry. Excellent book about creativity and writing and drawing, presented in Barry’s signature style of illustration. I’ve tried some of the exercises and am continuing to work on the 4-minute daily diary. Definitely one I’ll be referring to in the future!
Spouse on Haunted Hill (Haunted Guesthouse #8) by EJ Copperman. After skipping the seventh book, I quite enjoyed this one. It’s possible this was the last book in the series – it sure felt like things were being tidied up that way at the end. (Ok, apparently there are more books on the way – so now I’m wondering if the series was in limbo for a bit and the tidying was just in case.)

Hot mess o’ linkity, take two

I am not even sure where my linkity time went this evening. If you find it, would you send it back, please?!?!

Reading Update
Nerdy, Shy, and Socially Inappropriate: A User Guide to an Asperger Life by Cynthia Kim. reread. This is probably one I’ll reread every few years.
Night of the Living Deed (Haunted Guesthouse #1) by EJ Copperman. Good mystery in which Alison discovers, while converting her Victorian mansion into a guesthouse, that she she can see ghosts – ghosts who want her to help them figure out who killed them.
An Uninvited Guest (Haunted Guesthouse #2) by EJ Copperman. Good continuation of the series – Alison now has her PI license, but she didn’t really intend to actually use it…
Old Haunts (Haunted Guesthouse #3) by EJ Copperman. Alison’s ex husband shows up unexpectedly, and the two resident ghosts turn out to have unfinished business of their own.
A Wild Ghost Chase (Haunted Guesthouse #3.5) by EJ Copperman. Ok short – told from PI ghost Paul’s perspective for a change.
Chance of a Ghost (Haunted Guesthouse #4) by EJ Copperman. Alison’s (living) mother asks her to help a dramatic ghost of her acquaintance figure out who killed him.

Hot mess o’ linkity

Erm, yes, I perhaps dawdled away most of my linkity time, so this is going to be a hot mess. 😀

Reading Update
The Case of the Felonious Friend (Asperger’s Mystery #3) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Pretty good addition to the series – although, as with most amateur sleuth mysteries I read, the interaction of said sleuth and the police seem extremely improbable to me.
The Case of the Absentee Father (Asperger’s Mystery #4) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. This one didn’t quite gel for me. And speaking of improbably interactions between amateur sleuth and police… I just can’t picture the police of Los Angeles reacting as they did in this book.
