I missed yesterday, so lucky you, you get two today.

Do you read? What are your favorite books?

I am reading mostly fic these days. I recently read The Captive Prince trilogy, and started The Raven Cycle, though I have yet to finish it.

Favorite books: There's a trilogy I keep re-reading every now and then, by Rosemary Edgehill: Bell, Book, and Murder, plus her Failure of Moonlight, a collection of shorts about the same character. Practically anything by John D. MacDonald, Ray Bradbury, Barbara Kingsolver, Spider Robinson, or Alice Hoffman, though there are later writers, primarily women, whom I enjoy very much as well. I have been trying to dig through my boxes to find my poetry books and memoirs. I refuse to buy additional copies when I already own them. Access is necessary, though.

Three things you want to say to different people.

1. Please learn and use public manners. Don't force unwilling bystanders to share your music, and teach your children that their desire to shriek doesn't trump other people's need to go about their business minus a heart attack. The movie theater is not your living room, nor mine. I can't turn up the volume to mask your running commentary, and I paid to hear the dialog, thanks. (Exception made for the couple behind us during Flash Gordon, whose MSTK-ing enriched the script immeasurably)

2. The hell are you thinking? I didn't raise you that way.

3. If you'd get your head out of your own ass, you'd notice that everybody else is having just as difficult a time as you are--the ones who appear not to be? That's a temporary situation. We've all been there, or will be, or will be again.
