'THE SUNDAY POST
LAST. NOW. NEXT.
It was a seriously light week in The Library last week with only one post. I was busy! Besides continuing to comment vomit on everyone's blogs, trying to catch up (don't worry, if you haven't seen me you will soon), I cleaned my bedroom. And what is in my bedroom? All of my guitar gear. My cleaning jag had me cleaning, polishing, restringing, and testing everything. I took a series of photos for my Monday Music Musings post. It also spurred me into interacting on the Dean Owners Association and Alvarez Guitar Facebook groups.

I have wanted to change out the trem system on my electric guitar for a fixed bridge, but I had been reluctant to ask for help on the DOA's group because a lot of guys do the talking down thing with girls when it comes to electric guitars, but I am pleased to say they all interacted with me on an even level and I now have detailed instructions, with photos, on how to do it myself and save a load of money.
This is Fred, my Dean 88 Firecrackle. If you want to know why I named him Fred drop by my post tomorrow. Those are Baz Manchild's feet. I was having a problem getting the entire guitar in the photo and he is taller. I was chuckling because he was wearing sleep pants and socks, but he changed into jeans and Cons because he feet were showing. He takes his work seriously, ha ha.

I have wanted to find out more about the history of my Alvarez Fusion, so I left a photo of the label in the Alvarez group and on the company page (supposedly they will get back to you in less than a week). Before they started being factory produced in South Korea they were all handmade in little luthier huts in Japan. I am hoping they will be able to give me the exact cottage "factory" it was made in because the label is signed by a G.Yamada.
This is Grier my Alvarez. We will be taking pics of my Gibson SG, my amp, and pedals for Monday's post, later today.
Another addition to my Hoffman collection. It was still $1.99 at the time of this posting.
Another addition to my Octavia Butler collection. This is a book of short stories. It was $2.99, but now it is full price.
This title is FREE (check price before clicking purchase) and it sounds interesting. It's YA Contemporary, but is it Paranormal Romance, Magical Realism, or Fantasy? It sounds like it is a little bit of each.
This is all five stories, over 500 pages, in a bind-up. PLUS it is a KINDLE IN MOTION ebook, with moving illustrations. It is still only $4.99 at the time of this posting. GOODREADS.
If you want to try it out on the cheap there are some classic titles like The Secret Garden for $1.99. Click the link above for the Amazon list page.
It was so close to pub date for this one (March 7th) that I thought I wasn't getting approved for it. I am thrilled because I rated his first book, The Serpent King, five stars.
It publishes June 13th.
PAGES UNBOUND posted some match-up recommendations for Middle Grade books. You can read about the above titles and see more match-ups: HERE.
Kirsten from MOONLIGHT AND METAPHORS has compiled a master list of Fantasy and SciFi titles with disabled characters. It is fabulous and you should check it out: HERE. She is also taking recommendations for the list, so put on your thinking caps!
