Read a couple books since I last posted: Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Jane Yolen's Briar Rose. I liked both, though I thought Briar Rose was the better book of the two. Still, I enjoy Neil Gaiman's imagination. Next I'm reading another Patricia McKillip: Od Magic.

I also started proofreading my new project, which is going well. It's a very interesting book and very easy to read. It's a memoir of a 61-year-old college president who goes back to school for a semester as a freshman at a liberal arts college in Maryland. It's quite different from most of the books I've been proofing for UC Press, because it isn't scholarly or academic at all. No footnotes. I wish more of them were like this.
