Probably going to go over to my folks' again tomorrow. Might see if I can get anybody to go see The Princess and the Frog with me tomorrow. I think dad might owe me one ;)

Reading Nefetiti by Michelle Moran. I noticed its sequel in Target a week or so ago and it looked interesting, but I thought I should read them in chronological order, and found this one at B&N. Not done reading The Element of Fire yet, but it's kind of dragging so I thought I would tale a break from it for a little while.

B&N made me kind of gloomy. They've expanded the romance and magna sections, which leaves only about 1 1/2 aisles (if you count front and back) for SciFi/Fantasy. And a good 1/4 of that is Star Trek/Wars novels, video game novelizations, etc. You have to pick through the rest of it for something worth reading. If I was to run my own genre bookstore, I would divide it up into clearly designated sections to make it easier for people to find what they want. I'm thinking separate shelves for

- Books about women falling in love with vampires
- Books about women with tattoos
- Books about women who have telepathic connections with animals
- Books about women with tattoos who also have telepathic connections with animals
- Books with 'Avalon' in the title
- Books with horrific cover art
- Books by Terry Goodkind

Did I mention that all of these shelves will actually be in the back of the store, where no one will be subjected to their contents? Except for the Terry Goodkind one -- it shall be wheeled out into the parking lot and set on fire.
