Noted in passing

I am fortunate enough to read many interesting things on my friends list. Here are some of them from the last week to share with you all:

John Scalzi is right (about Catcher in the Rye).

homais in Yemen.

wyvernfriend finds wisdom in MASH.

peake on mild fame, and on online vs printed reviews.

rozk's TLS review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (spoilers).

Speaking of which, mizkit has been fortunate enough to receive the "Best Fanmail Evar".

bellatrys has been reading Norman's Gor books, and finds that they have no redeeming features.

Top tip from slimmeroftheyea: don't leave small children within reach of the handbrake, especially if you have parked on a slope.

sashajwolf on tea.

smhwpf discovers a personal link with Freema Agyeman.

And finally, agirlnamedluna is worried about Belgium.

It's only because I am on holiday that I have the time to acknowledge all these pieces of wisdom (and there are a couple more in unlocked posts which I have really enjoyed reading but won't link to here, including a fascinating piece about the pros and cons of getting married, and a really offensive cartoon from the Daily Mail). Keep it up folks; I enjoy reading you all.

Thanks for the mention. What was scary was that I couldn't find that quote in the new edition when I was flicking through and it took me 15 minutes to find it in the old edition. I will have to carefully peruse the new edition to see if things got left out.

It would be disappointing if things have been left out. While never as big a fan of the books as I am of the TV series (I think I only read the first two, against having seen every episode multiple times), but there was a lot of goodness in the first MASH book.
