Not too much else going on at this point. I may go to Best Buy tonight and look at electronics -- just to look. I still want to figure out more about how Kindles and Nooks work.
I re-read Hearts Afire: April last night. One of the stories in it was set in Philadelphia. It was a little disconcerting for me.
Later: I looked at the e-readers at Best Buy -- and only looked. Mostly they had Kindles and Nooks. I got the salesboy to show me a little about how to work the Nook Color. That's another one that I'd really like to see more about how it works, as in experimenting with it for a while. I asked about accessories for Kobos, since they had a Kobo Wireless there, but they only had accessories for the Kindles and Nooks. The salesboy said they should be getting the new Sony. That's another I really want to see.
I stopped at Barnes & Noble, but only got an orange-mango-banana smoothie. It had more banana flavor than I thought it would, but it was all right when I got used to that. The flavorings tasted like fresh fruit.
The layout of the store has been changed around, so you have to search a bit for romance now, where before it was right at the top of the escalator. I looked at romances, but I spent enough money there when I got The Tempering of Men and Changes the other day.
I got some stories from Torquere, one that Elisa Rolle had recommended and a couple by B.A. Tortuga. When I'm in the mood for a comfort read, B.A. is one of the authors I like for that.
I got Half Pass by Astrid Amara and the Samhain versions of Lessons in Love, Lessons in Desire and Lessons in Discovery. I had the Linden Bay versions, and wanted them in epub. There are certain books I want in every possible format, and the Cambridge Fellows Mysteries are among them.
I got Rougaroux Social Club 2: Bayou's End from Loose Id. In this one, both protagonists are gay to start with, unlike in Bayou Dreams. I had remembered that TeddyPig had reviewed Bayou Dreams, and read his review again after I read the book. Some of the things that he criticized didn't really bother me, and I knew going in that it was an "I'm not gay, but my inner werewolf is" book. I agree that it would have been better with more deliberate use of humor, but it wasn't bad. I'll post when I read Bayou's End.
I tried to watch last night's episode of Glee online, but the episode now doesn't unlock until the next Wednesday. A pity I didn't set it to tape last night. I guess I'll just have to wait that week. At least I could read the AE review. I think the reviewer is very good.
Again there's a stir from an author about a historical same-sex romance getting a bad review. If you get the history wrong, it's wrong. People study these things. I was a history major.
Apparently there were a lot of other things wrong with the book as well. Although I've kind of learned to read between the lines for certain reviewers who only say nice things about books, I appreciate reading an honest review of a book. Then I get a much better idea for if I'd like it. Sometimes blurbs are much better written than the books themselves, but if the blurb is awkwardly written, that's a clue. Excerpts can also be of better parts of the book, but they can be revealing. I go by Loose Id's warnings, too, to tell me if I might like a book from there.
