Since I discovered Blood Ties was being turned into a TV series I thought I'd re-read the series that inspired it. I've just finished the last short stories. Which Tanya Huff has said will be the last in the Vicky Nelson series. I hope that she gives in to the lure of future short tales.

Yesterday two books arrived from Amazon.
This evening I visited Forbidden Planet (as usual) and bought two books, didn't buy anything at Murder One and when I got home there was another Amazon package with another 2 books.

Check LibraryThing for details. I've now entered over 1500 books and nearly all the books in my new book cases. Once I've done them it's going to be a little harder getting access to the remaining books.

So last night I grabbed the last broadcast Blood Ties episode, "Stone Cold" for which Tanya Huff is credited as writer (go Tanya) and I started watching it this evening. Oh the pathos, and one or two lines really cracked me up.

Then I watched a "Mythbusters" revisit which was interesting, while simultaneously continued to add books to LibraryThing.

And finally on UKTV Docs "Inventions That Changed the World" presented by Jeremy Clarkson who told the story the the Computer from pencil pushers in Babbage's England to the current indispensable and ubiquitous silicon processor.

I didn't learn much that was NEW but the Clarkson spin, did make you think a bit.

Oh yes my LT total is now 606, (including 2 books that arrived from amazon today).

At my juggling class last night I finally hit that zen moment and started passing clubs, without immediately messing up. Twice we managed 7 passes (timing was self self pass) which was really excellent. I hope that I can do as well in two weeks time when we return. Next week is a bank holiday so we miss out.

When I got home I started watching the first episode of Blood Ties that I'd downloaded at the weekend and then I went on to the second one and then it was a two part story and I had to get to the end! Really excellent series, they have taken the heart of the books and have run with it. I've nearly caught up to those in the US at this point.

So on Friday night, with 3 new books from Forbidden Planet, I continued to add to my LibraryThing catalogue. I stopped at 450 which I thought was a fairly impressive number, before retiring to bed.

Saturday was bright and sunny, so a spent most of the day reading, apart from when I went shopping, which was a pleasant walk.

On my return I saw the next episode of Doctor Who, which was an excellent conclusion to the Dalek 2 parter

I was able to borrow my sisters scanner and scanned 27 covers and uploaded them to LibraryThing. These were books where the cover art on MY books didn't match any of the artwork held at LT.
It was fun doing the scanning, cropping and uploading and I've now got it down pat.

I then backed up the folder My Documents on my laptop to network storage and managed to delete 14 GB of data prior to a bittorent download of the next 3 episodes of Blood Ties. And so to bed.

Today I added another 14 covers to LT and currently have catalogued 530 books, which is a little below my earlier average, but I think 41 book covers has to balance that out.

Bittorrent is your friend. While I will be watching Blood Ties when it arrives on Living TV later this year, I just couldn't wait and downloaded the first few episodes earlier this week. The pilot (episodes 1+2 based on the first book by [livejournal.com profile] andpuff) set the tone and I could hardly wait till the next part downloaded.

Finally watched episodes 3 and 4 tonight which aren't based of any stories by Tanya Huff, but still fitted into the world she designed. At this rate I'll catch up with those watching in the US!!
