    Last time I blogged, it was snowing; today the sun is shining and the temps are already in the upper-50s. Crazy crazy weather.
    I completely missed Halloween yesterday; sorry about that. Hope you had lots of tasty chocolate and sugary treats.
    Wanted to tell you about a couple of teeny tiny books we just received: the first two volumes of the Tales of the Otori series Grass for His Pillow by Lian Hearn. These were notable books for the New York Times. Historical japanese fantasy fiction.... Take a look.
    Also, during the month of November, I'm going to try to keep a display of anime/manga stocked in the YA area behind the "New Books" display bin. I'll have videos and books and stuff like that; a sampling of what we own and what we're getting. There's always more, and when I get new stuff this month, it will all go there. Enjoy!
    I finished reading another Cece Caruso mystery by Susan Kandel: Not a Girl Detective. In this books Cece is writing a biography about the author(s) of the Nancy Drew books, Carolyn Keene (a pseudonym for the writers, including Mildred Wert Benson) and finds herself caught up in the murder of a Nancy Drew series collector. Combine a Nancy Drew convention, some vintage clothing, an art collector, a couple of undiscovered Dali masterpieces, and bunches of seemingly unrelated clues, and it's a mystery perfect for the grown-up Nancy Drew set! I so wish this series were more fully fleshed out; it's so bothersome to discover a great series at its beginning and have to wait for the new books to come out!
