National Library Week

Called the insurance company, reported the accident, gave them the number of the police report. So now we'll just wait and see. I know there can be delayed consequences from being slammed into like that, but I don't feel hurt or sore anywhere this morning. I work out regularly, so my back and shoulders are in pretty good shape, so maybe that helps. It's just my hands and feet where I have all the problems; fortunately I didn't squeeze the steering wheel or ram my hand into anything, so I can still type and everything.


hellblazer pointed out that it's National Library Week, so here are a couple of book recs.

After yesterday, I decided to treat myself and started reading Soulless by Gail Carriger, and am really enjoying it. It's set in an alternate Victorian London, with steampunk overtones, and where supernatural creatures like werewolves, vampires, etc are members of society. The female main character is awesome, and I think it'll definitely appeal to fans of Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody books.

Also, I just noticed today that there's another Ghost Hunters book out: Seeking Spirits: The Lost Cases of the Atlantic Paranormal Society by Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, and Michael Jan Friedman. Since the descriptions of the cases that hadn't been shown on TV were the best part of the previous book, I'm really looking forward to this one.
