Hotter here?? That doesn't seem possible. We should be running through sprinklers, girl!

Or, sitting inside with a cold beer. :)

I'm a seventies gal. I can exist pretty well in the eighties but anything above that puts me in agony. So I'm feelin' for you!

And your icon has changed. Which means you're done with Goliath. How was it?

I'll admit to liking 80s and even low 90s. But this is ridiculous!

I really, really liked Goliath. I liked everything about it; how things were revealed, the story line, the ending, everything. It was a satisfying end to the series.

It's a funny story about how I ended up with the ARC. See, Scott Westerfeld visited my school last year just as Behemoth was coming out, and it was an awesome visit. I've been waiting and waiting for the third book. I went to the ALA conference in New Orleans (fun!) and wanted to score an advance copy of Goliath. My colleague and I kept stopping by the Simon & Schuster booth, asking them if they had any. "No," they would say sadly, shaking their heads. I must have looked bereft, because at one point a lady from the booth followed me, caught up with me, and whispered, "Here, but DON'T LET ANYONE SEE THIS," and slipped me a copy. My friend was mad that I ended up with one, and she did not! HA.

Anyway, it was great.

Oh boy, I agree! I think I'd rather have 104. Maybe.

At least you're South. Yesterday in PA it was 103. Today, 100. With the heat index, 110 yesterday. I dunno today. Plus my personal summer makes it, lemme see, 786 degrees my internal temp. Just sayin'. :P

hahaha, I hear you, sister! Yeah, that's just wrong for your part of the country. At least around here it's not so unexpected.
