I got my own copy of The Tempering of Men, in print. I also got a Mercedes Lackey Valdemar book, Changes. I had thought it wasn't due out until spring, but she puts several books out a year.
Slightly later: I filled up the third storage container box with books, and was then able to put more books onto my bookshelves. I have a number of books on the T and I of LGBTI, and I got them all on a bookshelf. I'd given a few of the books by and about transmen to the GLBT organization at [local university]. There were at least three young transmen who attended meetings last year.
All in all it was a relatively productive day.
Later: I lost track of time, and only saw the second half of Glee. It will be online tomorrow night, and I'll watch the whole thing then. The half I saw had a fair amount of Kurt, and some with Kurt and Blaine. They are cute together.
Changes has the protagonist speaking in a low-class accent, written out, even in his thoughts. It's tough for me to read that much dialect. I keep re-reading parts of The Tempering of Men. I love how the men and wolves of the wolfheall work together. Yes, there are a lot of made-up language words in the Iskryne World books, but they work. It was much easier to remember the names by the second book. Not that many changed, and there were a number of people from the first book in the second one.
