Saturday starts bright and early.
What I Reread and Why
When many readers start slipping into depression, we compulsively re-read a set of books and series that comfort us. For example, each of these books/series may have a strong female protagonist who, after being misunderstood or rejected by her birth family, goes on to create a new family that understands. Do other people find themselves re-reading certain books or series under specific conditions? What books? What do we gain by this re-reading? Is it different than random re-reading? More generally, what books, or types of books, do we re-read? Are there books that you really enjoyed that you will never again pick up? What do we gain by revisiting a story when we already know the plot?

At 8PM Saturday, or right after the end of the Unaward Banquet (whichever comes first), we'll be celebrating gramina's fiftieth birthday in the consuite, and YOU are invited. We're providing cake, decorations, and the birthday girl herself.
At 9:30PM, she'll go off filking, while I am doing a Very Special Reading with a couple of other good writers in the Santa Rosa room.
At 11PM, there will be a queer/poly/kinky/sex radicals munch in the hotel bar. Like the reading, this is strictly Legal Adults Only, thanks.
Sunday I will probably be cross-eyed with exhaustion, but I'll plow ahead anyway.
What are you doing at FOGcon? Or instead of FOGcon?
