Continuing education and Gabriel’s Ghost

I signed up for a class that starts on Monday. I’ve been feeling kind of stagnant lately, so I’m trying something new. We’ll see how it goes. I really wanted to take a brush up class in Spanish or Russian, but didn’t register in time to be tested and placed before classes begin, so I’ll have to wait until the winter or spring session for that. So instead I’m taking a different language entirely 🙂 It would make sense to specialize in one wouldn’t it? rather than have a smattering of several, none of which I am truly proficient in. But I never claimed to be the most practical of people.

Finished Gabriel’s Ghost by Linnea Sinclair, which was a RITA winner for science fiction/fantasy, I believe. Liked it, although there were a couple of things that irritated me, as I mentioned when I posted to a chat group. It reminded me of Firefly, but I’m not entirely sure why. May have to go back and reread and reconsider to figure that out.

ETA: I skimmed Janet Aylmer’s Darcy’s Story. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, but it didn’t really grab me. And I saw an ad banner over at AAR for Mr. Knightly’s Diary, a retelling of Emma from Mr. Knightly’s perspective. Eh, another JA spin off? Enough, I say!
