For those of you looking to earn some good karma: author friend S.W. Lothian is building a little library for the oncology ward at the Princess Margeret Children's Hospital in Perth, so kids fighting cancer (and their families) can find a little refuge in a book. Donating is easy, and doesn't even have to cost you in postage (Perth being in Australia and all). Here's the post on S.W. Lothian's blog; contact him to help out!
I'm reading the Edgar Award nominees for Best Novel this month; so far, they're all really good...
I'm in the middle of Alafair Burke's The Ex, which is having me stay up well past my bedtime. I fear I'll have no thoughts on who will win... What great reading--go check out the nominees here.
Any good TV shows you have to recommend?
Oh, and in recommended music, here's Barns Courtney's Fire. Has a cool, old-school vibe to it.
