Robin McKinley’s backlist will be available as ebooks. Open Road Media will release eight of McKinley’s backlist titles, including The Hero and the Crown, Beauty, and Sunshine, on Nov. 18. More info here.

Cool! The Blue Sword and Beauty were my favorite books as a kid. I still have the now yellowed books, but would love an ebook version, too.
There are many people – happy people, it usually appears – whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books. The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them. – Robertson Davies (1997)

That was great. It really is in a class by itself.

I didn't realize her husband had died. No wonder she's been MIA.

You know, I have never been able to make it through The Outlaws of Sherwood. I just tried again a couple of months ago. I agree with the rest though.

IKR? Just nothing fun about that book. I really need some sense of humor to get me through.

She seemed to think the "Robin's not that good an archer" thing was all the joke she needed.
