It is quite wintry here. We had our March in January, and now we are getting January weather in March. The sidewalks are still icy in places, and I've been paranoid about slipping. I hold Lorna's hand while walking, on the theory that four legs are better than two (and also because I like holding her hand).
We went to the library yesterday. Lorna picked out a book on frogs while I browsed through the classical CDs and got another John Crowley book, Ægypt. I'm enjoying this one, too, and while he is not a very prolific author, it's nice to know that there are four or five more of his books waiting to be read.
Sony is coming out with an e-book reader, and the most interesting thing about it is that it uses E Ink, an "electronic paper" display that can be read in bright sunlight and from any angle, much like printed paper. The reader itself is kind of expensive and limited in features, but I could see myself eventually buying a 2nd or 3rd generation version.
