You know it’s never a good thing when you haven’t posted in so long that your index page is blank because all the entries have fallen off.

It’s been like that, lately. I feel like my personal index page is blank and I don’t have anything really useful to say beyond “Gee I wish my pills worked better” and “Insurance companies really suck” and “Thank God I’m getting a massage tomorrow.”

But I have purchased some really good books recently, so I guess I’ll write about that.

I’m not usually a big fan of novels involving vampires. The genre hasn’t really been my “thing” since I lean more towards light-hearted mysteries and the occasional fantasy novel. Browsing through Powells recently, this series happened to catch my eye: a vampire/mystery series by Charlaine Harris. The books were supposed to have a little less horror and a little more humour, so I bought the first one, Dead Until Dark. True to the reviews, I thought it was really funny, really charming, and quite enjoyable to read. Since there are at least three more in the series already in print, it looks like this will keep me busy for a while.

On the same wall, but back in fantasy/sci-fi, I found a book with another premise that sounded interesting: a novel with a heavy fantasy/magic element set in Regency Englad. One of my guilty pleasures is reading romance novels set in that time period. I figured this one was probably a little less guilty so I picked it up: Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Caroline Stevermer and Patricia C. Wrede. As an aside, I’ve read another of Stevermer’s books, A College of Magics and really enjoyed it.

It’s kind of nice to have some expendable income. I don’t feel guilty for buying paperbacks new, instead of waiting (sometimes for years) for a used copy to turn up.
