Communities and catch-up  
Recovering from my cold, I find myself keen to catch up on things I've been meaning to do--I've been poaching fruit, reorganising my music collection, doing mending ... let's hope this productivity lasts!

LJ-wise, my recent acquisition of 75 or so new books (*gloats*) means I'm finally updating my neglected books filter, so apologies in advance to those of you on it--there may be quite a bit of spam on there from me over the weekend--I'll keep the entries cut-tagged so they don't take up too much space on your f'list. ;-)

Meanwhile, I also have new communities to pimp:
- readingniccolo is my own creation--set up to encourage discussion (and squee!) about Dorothy Dunnett's House of Niccolo series, which I've hooked c_mantix on. Not much there yet, other than us giggling over ostriches and alum in the first book, Niccolo Rising. However, I can't recommend the series highly enough and anyone interested in joining in is welcome any time. I just ask you to be considerate about spoilers because a) it's me! and b) there are so many plot twists over the eight-book series which first-time readers really don't want to know about in advance.
- lana_is_ok should be self-explanatory. That's right--there is now a community that is pro-Lana (don't fall off your chairs in shock!). I'm the first to admit that I'm a latecomer to the Lana fanclub, but she's totally charmed me in season 6 and she damn well deserves more respect from the Smallville fandom than she currently gets.

While I'm pimping unpopular communities, ;-), I should mention a community that I believe is under-utilised (which I take full responsibility for as co-maintainer!): loislane_sv is a community for fans of Smallville's Lois Lane--meta, art, fanfic, news, vids and anything else are welcome.

ETA: Thank you to the kind souls who said lovely things on stir_of_echoes's fandom love meme.

I just joined the Lois comm, because I love Lois SO MUCH NOW. Rewatching season 4 confirmed to me that she is totally fucking awesome in every way. ED has become my favourite Lois (although I'm extremely fond of Margot Kidder's Lois as well).

Wheeeeee!!! This makes me SO HAPPY, Kate! Lois is an extremely fun character once you get into her, and ED's my favourite Lois too though I definitely love and respect her predecessors. She is indeed fucking awesome! :-D

Melissa and I set up the comm and then did nothing with it. I think some hiatus projects are called for... *plots Lois fun*

Glad to hear you're getting some puttering-around-the-house sort of things done while you're sick...take it easy! :) (Oh, and what kind of fruit are you poaching? Mmm. It's almost summertime and cherry and peach season here...)

And yay again for the 75 books! I feel a vicarious flush of victory at the very thought. :D I bought Niccolo Rising and joined your comm too.

Take care, K!

Eee! Your icon is so cute. I love how Lee's totally fixated on Kara despite being in the most awkward position, plus he's totally lounging on the grass seductively waiting for her to come sex him spray him with water. ;-)

I feel a vicarious flush of victory at the very thought. :D I bought Niccolo Rising and joined your comm too.
Wheee! on both counts! \o/ It delights me that you bought Niccolo Rising--hooray! And I don't know where to start with these books! It's causing me much (delightful) angst!

Whee!! Lois comm! We totally need to do more with it. *nods*

SO MANY BOOKS! *dies of book overload*

I haven't fully recovered my powers, but when I do I will make post about my favourite parts of Niccolo Rising. *nods*
