Reading Update
Swan: Poems and Prose Poems by Mary Oliver. This one had a couple of things I quite liked, but overall it didn’t resonate that much with me.
Journal Sparks: Fire Up Your Creativity with Spontaneous Art, Wild Writing, and Inventive Thinking by Emily K Neuburger. Very good collection of creative journaling ideas for those times when you need some inspiration. It also includes a section on making your own simple journals, plus has some stickers and artsy paper to use in your own creative journal.
Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go by Felix Scheinberger. Ok overview of drawing basics with particular tips for urban sketchers. Definitely feels like a variation of other things I’ve read before.
Footnotes from the World’s Greatest Bookstores: True Tales and Lost Moments from Book Buyers, Booksellers, and Book Lovers by Bob Eckstein. A lovely little book highlighting 75 bookstores from around the world, with a watercolor painting and anecdote for each. This is one I’m perfectly fine with reading from the library and not owning.

Reading Update
Evidence: Poems by Mary Oliver. Lovely. Thanks to Margene for reminding me that the 2nd was Silent Poetry Reading Day!
Horoscopes for the Dead: Poems by Billy Collins. How the heck do you rate and review poetry anyhow?!
Noted: A Journal to Explore How We Shape, Create, and Develop Ideas by Adam Turnball. Great title and look, but – boring. Didn’t find it inspiring, alas. In fact, it’s probably going to get cut up for collage, which I would not do if I’d found it useful.

Reading Update
The Merchant’s War (Merchant Princes #4) by Charles Stross. I think I’m going to use my status update from finishing this book as my review: “OMG, another cliffhanger. I have the next two ebooks on hand (bless you, library), but I have to sleep. And these are not short books. But the suspense! At least I know things have to be tied up by the end of the next two books, since that ends the series…
The Revolution Business (Merchant Princes #5) by Charles Stross. How can the intensity just continue to build like this?! Anyway, yeah, another cliffhanger, so make sure you have the next book on hand.
The Trade of Queens (Merchant Princes #6) by Charles Stross. This was a white-knuckle read right until the very end! Whew. It feels like this series was heavily influenced by the way the world turned after 9/11… Also, willful ignorance and refusing to change/adapt can be extraordinarily dangerous to those around you…

Linkity was not emotionally prepared for a foot of snow

Also, very dawdly during my linkity time, so you get a hot mess o’ linkity again. 😀

Reading Update
Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book by Lynda Barry. Another good illustrated book from Lynda Barry – this one focuses mostly on drawing.
The Bloodline Feud (The Merchant Princes #1-#2) by Charles Stross. I kept tripping over the language a bit at the beginning (it seemed overly descriptive), but I got completely sucked into the story anyway and stayed up too late to finish it. So!
The Clan Corporate (The Merchant Princes #3) by Charles Stross. Make sure you have the next book on hand, because this ends on a really evil cliffhanger!

In which linkity got paged during linkity time…

So you get a whole mess o’ linkity! 🙂

Reading Update
CreativeGIRL: Mixed Media Techniques for an Artful Life by Danielle Donaldson. Ok book with some techniques for using watercolor and sewn paper in your mixed media projects. Definitely one I’m glad I borrowed from the library – not close to a keeper.
Dot Journaling – A Practical Guide: How to Start and Keep the Planner, To-Do List, and Diary That’ll Actually Help You Get Your Life Together by Rachel Wilkerson Miller. Yes, you can get all of this content hither and thither online, but – I just really like having it all in a single place. The book is fairly bristling with sticky tape flags marking things I want to remember or reference.
