Where'd the Week Go?

What happened? I haven't posted since Sunday? And yet there's been so much going on:



Diana Gabaldon's Czarina of Traffic on the forum is celebrating two years of her blog, here. And Diana herself has posted a few snippets here and there of scenes from Book 8!

I started a thread on the forum regarding expository paragraphs, those grand, sweeping descriptions of events that cover weeks or more, and relate everything as a summary. Rather than skipping time altogether and later relating it through flashback, this sort of description, I think, moves the reader along with the characters in real time, only quicker. One of the other forumites called it a moving sidewalk, which I think is a pretty apt description.

In case you missed it, Kait's got the next installment of Forsaken by Shadow up, here.

You've heard of Gutenberg and Google Books, now India's got a list of other places to get free e-books!

Have I mentioned The Orientalist Gallery before? Some absolutely gorgeous Oriental-themed paintings from the 19th century, such as this one by Oliver Dennett Grover, "Harem Scene":
