1. Just started reading "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell", which so far is quite wonderful. I'm literally 26 pages in, but I am HOOKED. 782-page novels about 19th-century magicians in London + footnotes = awesome

2. I just went bananas. I ordered that insane Far Side collection and the Anchorman gift-set, which comes out today. I can't decide which I'm more excited for.
