Just thought I'd mention that I'm back into the swing of things, as far as reading goes. I finished the book I was reading last week - Tithe, by Holly Black - on Friday. It was an excellent YA novel for anyone who loves tales of the supernatural, and I highly recommend it. Yesterday, I read another book from cover to cover (yay! back to reading a book a day!): First Test, by Tamora Pierce. Pierce is also a YA author, and a reminder that luck and chance have as much to do with society's selection of bestsellers as story and skill do. I think Pierce's books - fantasy tales of knights, demons, and a medieval world - are comparable to Harry Potter, and I would recommend them to anyone who likes that sort of thing. Of course, the advantage to Pierce's books is that they feature strong female heroes, which many fantasy books do not.
