The Laughing Librarian, by Jeannette C. Smith (complimentary copy)
Chockful of examples of library humor from the 19th and 20th century, with a smattering of 21st century stuff too. Fun for those of us what like that sort of thing, and some interesting library history in there, too.
The Wall Around Eden, by Joan Slonczewski
This was great! I love Joan Slonczewski's characters, stories, world-building, and focus on biology so so much, and yet I still have not read more than 2 or 3 of her books. *makes a mental note to change that*
Accelerando, by Charles Stross (nook)
This was intellectually gripping, but messy. Took me a long time to care.
Killer Smile, by Lisa Scottoline
Too by-the-numbers for me, but it did make me laugh a few times. Decent airplane reading.
Judging a Book by Its Lover, by Lauren Leto
This was a delightful surprise. Both funny and full of love. I gobbled it.
Mission Child, by Maureen McHugh
I've been *deliberately* stretching out my consumption of Maureen McHugh's books, because she is one of those rare writers I fear catching up to. Heaven forfend I ever run out of her books! Anyway, this one was marvelously good. It's a book about civilisation and acculturation and identity and a whole bunch of other things, all at once and all seamlessly fitting together into a compelling story.
