Breaking news:  good books on sale on Kindle for a limited time!  We both loved Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal, and #1 also loves A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent, written by Marie Brennan. Each under $3 if you act now. Mmmmmm, fantasy books!

Rez ball.

Look at this awesome thing called “quiltmation“.  What’s your state #1 in?
