I just received this book in the library and it's SPECTACULAR!!  (I especially enjoyed the chapter describing how he wrote his Dr. Who episodes!)
Hayley Campbell (who, at age seven, worked side-by-side with her father Eddie Campbell on the graphic novel classic "From Hell") has recently published a gorgeous, authoritative book on the myriad artworks created to accompany Neil Gaiman's many works. We proudly present several extracts from her book here.

My review simply cannot do this book justice, but I wrote it anyway! Wow, you really should read this!
I really can't write a better description of this book than the author herself, who sums it up on her website like this: "My second novel asks the big questions, like: What if Glee and Heathers had a baby and sent it to band ...

Yes, there was a meeting scheduled for next Thursday, but we moved it up since we feel that the day of the LAN party is a little late to plan. We mentioned it at the last meeting, but you may not have heard - it was a causal comment. Anyway, we do want to meet and make sure everything is covered.

Nice. The only fitness tracker for cycling, I think. (Garmin GPS watch is still my go-to for this, but it's nice to see the trackers trying to catch up.)
 
Fitbit adds cycling support to the Surge, introduces multi-device tracking http://tnw.me/Y967e2R

Loved, loved, loved this book! The characters, the setting, the murder-suicides, for real - it's witty and delicious! Here is the description the author has on her website, and it pretty much sums it up perfectly: 
"What if Glee and Heathers had a baby and sent it to band camp at the Overlook Hotel?"

So, if you want to have your laptop plugged in, you have to have this dongle hanging there?? No. Not cool. What's wrong with a few different ports, anyway? I think they've fixed a problem that was not a problem. 

Maybe it's me, but I'm not sure the MacBook fills a need. (Except that now I wish my MacBook air was gold, darn it.)

Is this for real? Do we need to start installing AVG Free fridge edition?
