For those of you just discovering this feature, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week. Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine articles.
The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.
Once again, this is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.
The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Audiobook. Two separate tales side by side. Reads like something written to be serialized, with alternating cliffhangers. Does anyone know if it was?
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Audiobook. I read this as a print version a while back, because our library didn’t have the audio then. It does now. I love this reader and am seriously considering buying the recorded version rather than or as well as the print.
Last night before bed I read the entire section on versions of the Bible in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. When I got to the “Printer’s Bible,” given what I’d read before, I laughed out loud.
