Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary - Pamela Dean - interesting read; all the plot happens in the last 20-50 pages or so. If you don't mind that you might enjoy it.

Beyond Grimm - anthology - BVC - A nice collection of riffs on fairy tales by some of my favorite authors. Good summer reading.

V is for Vendetta - Sue Grafton - a nice murder mystery. I do like this series

Pulchritude - Ana Mardoll - ebook - very interesting take on Beauty and the Beast. Recommend.

Charity Girl - Georgette Heyer - a little less amusing that I usually like from her.

Lady of Quality - Georgette Heyer - much better than the above.

The Wind Done Gone - Alice Randall - oh my. What a brilliant different take on Gone With the Wind. Highly recommend if you've read the original.

So, a few weeks ago, I moved a bunch of bookshelves around, which opened up the room, and gave a sense of space and immediate progress.

I have the hobby books segregated on a bookshelf, and the unread books on others, and I have a whole empty bookshelf to unpack books into! Yay! I can also purge as I unpack, which is very, very exciting. I am also reading a 5 novel set which I probably won't keep; I am trying to read down my unread pile, so as to free up the shelf space.

The computer is set up, and the desk is mostly cleaned, and ready to use!

I've started to purge files, and am making progress there. I think I will end up with significantly less paper. Woot.

I figured out what to use to replace the jewelry box I broke.

I just let go of a bunch of rubber stamps I won't use again. I'm keeping the ones I like. I never use the sealing wax, so ... bye!

The knitted kerchiefs I made a few summers ago? I never wear them. Bye!

I have an entire empty plastic rolley-cart, just waiting for me to figure out what to put in it!

This is so exciting - it feels do-able that I can have a clean, organized room, for the first time in my life. And once I get the room in shape, I have the room to clean out the other places (attic, basement, closet) where stuff collects, and get rid of the things in there, as well.
