mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday personal)


Not that Gutenberg.

Today is National Rationalization Day, and the anniversary of the publication of the Gutenberg Bible (1455). And so, despite having a metric assload of work to do, I sat down and read a book, because I both need and deserve a little breathing room.

The book in question was Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I liked it, but my well o' words is a little too empty for a proper review at the moment.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
