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.

    FINALLY!!! Have vid idea for expressing what I feel I need to about Game of Thrones! But will it translate at all to others? And do I care?
