It was a busy week, so I was remiss in posting this exciting news: Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead has been chosen as one of three nominees for the Spring “Read This!” pick at the LitBlog Co-op. The other two books on the list seem really intriguing, and I reeeeaaally want to pick up Wizard of the Crow.

There will be textual/audio content about Skinny Dipping at LBC in upcoming months; will keep you posted.

Oh, and it’s 36 degrees outside, as opposed to minus 36 windchill, so it actually, kinda, feels like “spring”!

    I was just thinking to myself when I walked outside this morning, “wow, it’s so warm.” High today: 34

    Insane, isn’t it? When it gets to the high 40s, people will start wearing shorts here.

    I’m excited to see “Skinny Dipping” talked about at the LBC! Yay!

    I think it got up to around 41 degrees here today. Or maybe I read that wrong and it’s what tomorrow is supposed to be. Maybe it only got to 36 today. But man, I was already shucking off my winter jacket.
