Tamora Pierce was speaking at our local library a few weeks ago, so I thought it would be a good time to refresh my memory on her work. The first Alanna book was checked out, so I picked these at random.
Both were enjoyable–the Circle of Magic book felt much younger, so I enjoyed the Trickster book more. It’s books like this that make me wish my brother had had at least one girl for me to share books with.
If you’re a fan and you ever get a chance to hear her speak, go. She was entertaining, and only spoke for about 5 minutes–the rest of the time was Q&A, and she’ll answer just about anything.
And I would kind of like to talk to some crows now.
* I’m trying to step up my reading of business books, so I searched out the Personal MBA group on Goodreads. We’ll be reading The Personal MBA:Master the Art of Business by Josh Kauffman. for a July 24 discussion. Seemed like an appropriate place to start, since the group is based on Kauffman’s concept of a do-it-yourself MBA education. If you’re interested, come join us.
