I hereby decree this day Tidbit Friday on planetpooks.
Cause that’s all I got.
Tidbit One: I’m thinking of cooking lamb for Easter. My family has never eaten lamb. I’ve never cooked it. This is the recipe. Tell me what you think, and possibly, save me from disaster.
If that means nothing to you, save my family. They’re the innocents in this plot. Well, if you don’t count the lamb.
First sentence of Half a Crown by Jo Walton. As first sentences go, it’s not the strongest, since this book is about much more than a young woman “coming out” as a debutante and being presented to young Queen Elizabeth in an alternate 1960 England. It took me a bit to figure out who she was, and once I did, I was much more vested in the story–though truth to tell I was already very vested since this is the third and final book in the England-negotiates-truce-with-Hitler series I’ve been reading: Farthing, Ha’penny and now Half a Crown. From the Book Beginnings meme. Go join in, live a little.
Tidbit Three: It seems that The _______ Daughter is an extremely popular titling device. Emily St. John Mandel got to 531 before she gave up and stopped counting. However, she also made spreadsheets and pie charts, she did.
Tidbit Five: I’m still pondering the lamb thing. Oh and the chicken thing. The spammers loved that one a lot.
