Why I haven't posted

This summer I had three stress inducing projects with project two depending on project one and project three requiring project two. First I had to move our library system to a new server. Following that, we upgraded to a new version of our library software. Finally, we reloaded our entire bibliographic database and cleared and reloaded the authority records. by we, I mean me and my part-time assistant.

Now I'm off to Florida to visit my mother. Since I'm flying I have skimped on clothing in favor of books. Here is what I'm taking with me:

  • Severance Package by Duane Swierczynski
  • The Four Noble Truths: Foundation of Buddhist Thought, vol. 1 by Geshe Tashi Tsering
  • The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
  • Hoodtown by Christa Faust
  • Die Twice by Simon Kernick
  • Mysterium and Mystery: The Clerical Crime Novel by William D. Spencer
  • Assorted photocopies about mysteries, women authors of mysteries, and clerical mysteries
Yep, that's a lot of books for eight days but I know I can will read three quickly, one is mostly reference for a something I'm trying to write, and the other two are insurance since there is a hurricane approaching Florida and the forecast calls for rain for my entire visit.

I hope to return with at least three reviews.
