jumping ship

I'm jumping ship.  So long, LJ, it's been a fantastic 15 years but I've gotta go.

I'm going to continue the party over at Dreamwidth - my name there is Grayduck.  I'll keep cross-posting over here but I'm going to make DW my home.

Welcome, Dreamwidth people. I am going to keep this account open, but I won't be writing here unless something goes terribly wrong with LJ.

I'm [ profile] anterastilis  over there. If you're also a member of LJ in Exile, just drop me a note in the comments and I'll add you here as well.

Remember these?  It's been a long time since I've done a book review.  I used to do them all the time on this blog and just...stopped one day in 2009.  Not sure why.  I am also not sure why I un-tagged all of the book reviews.  They used to be tagged and linked in my sidebar.  ???  Well, I'll get on re-tagging them once I have a little bit of extra time. [edit: done! They are now all tagged "books".]  And I'm going to keep with the numbering even though I've obviously read a few books since 2009.

For the n00bs: I leave these posts public so keep any conversation clean and don't bring up stuff that belongs in a usual LJ post.  Thankya!

Onto the review...
