Yes, there's the old adage "Don't judge a book by it's cover," but when I'm shelving, that's what catches my attention (as well as the title). And I have occasional "I'm such a geek" moments when I'll be shelving things, see a book, and think, "Ooh! The title's in Hannibal Lecter!" (they used this for the PotO movie titles). Anyway, I was shelving in the YA section last month when the spine of Lisa Ann Sandell's Song of the Sparrow caught my eye (the spine has a smaller version of the cover picture). When I read the inside of the jacket, I knew I had to check the book out--it's about Elaine of Ascolat (which, as many of you know, is my favourite Arthurian legend)! I finally read it last week (I was in the middle of several books) and quite enjoyed it. The book is written as verse, but it reads more like prose: sentences with no set rhyme scheme or meter and very lyrical. It's lovely, really.

As for Dalek progress, this is where I've been for more than a week (I've been trying to figure out how to secure the colourwork in the shoulders). I took the pictures to-day and thought I should probably post them as I've been promising a progress post for a while.

Pictures under the cut! )



I had book club last night, which is always an enjoyable time. One of the things we talked about was journaling. No, this had nothing to do with the book--the book is generally talked about for maybe half an hour and then we talk about life in general, &c. Back to the journaling--I need to start doing that again (in a pen-and-paper journal, I mean). I kept a journal (actually, I suppose it was technically a diary) throughout high school and into freshman year at SU; then I stopped. I tried to pick it up again when I went to NCUR and on my England trip, but I haven't done much since then.

And I think that's enough for today.
