KoyoCon 2019 – The One Where I Went Ginger and Sold a Lot of Books

Since I'm finally semi-recovered after getting home from KoyoCon yesterday, I suppose it's time for a Post-Convention Post! Honestly, this ...

One-Legged Owl

The Tale of Artemis, the One-Legged Owl

As I have mentioned in previous posts - and talked about at length on Twitter - my owl Artemis has been sick lately. After a couple of weeks filled with worry on my part, and fury from Artemis at having to take medication, this has now resulted in Artemis getting ...

Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

Here we go with Maskerade by Terry Pratchett. Artemis is home at the moment, but still quite unwell. But don't worry, I'm still working through my backlog of owl photos, so he's not being forced to do any posing. You'll get the whole story as soon as I'm able to ...

Get Books, Not Corona

If there was ever a time to barricade yourself in your house with enough book to fill a library... it is now. I think most of us had a "Oh shit, this is actually real, isn't it?" moment last week with regards to the Corona pandemic. Until then, I hadn't ...

The Bookish Owl – Alanna by Tamora Pierce

Here's Alanna by Tamora Pierce. Artemis is currently hospitalized with an infected talon, but I got a backlog of these book owl photos and writing blog posts helps distract me from worrying about possibly becoming the owner of a one-legged owl tomorrow (for once I'm not exaggerating - it might ...

Broken Melody – Excerpt (Chapter 17)

Selissa had found a lot of bodies in her life; often butchered in grotesque ways, giving evidence of the monster or maniac who had taken their life. As she kneeled down next to Lieutenant Jathae, she was struck by how rarely she saw someone killed by a single clean cut ...

Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett

Next up is Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. This Discworld book is about asshole elves and a royal wedding, but I reread it for Granny Weatherwax and Archchancellor Ridcully reminiscing about their past romance (I ship those two so hard), Nanny Ogg being Nanny Ogg, and Magrat suddenly becoming ...

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban owl

The Bookish Owl – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling

Enjoy Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling! This is another Harry Potter book, which means Artemis the owl is not happy. It might have something to do with me once considering naming him 'Pigwidgeon'... Once again, rereading these books as an adult has turned out ...

Don’t Listen to Terry Pratchett Audiobooks at the Gym

I don't normally listen to audiobooks. I have nothing against audiobooks – hell, I wish I had the attention span to listen to audiobooks, but I'm simply too ADD to pay attention if I don't actively have to participate in what's going on. I will listen attentively for about two minutes ...

Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett

Here we go with Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett. This was another Discworld reread (surprise, surprise). This one is about witches, wizards, gender roles, and of course, horrible monsters from another dimension. It also has Granny Weatherwax, who, in the eyes of the wizards of Unseen University, might very well ...
