Search Terms

hedestad map
map of hedeby island
girl with the dragon tattoo map
Yes, there are maps to go along with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo! English versions of the maps are available at Reg Keeland’s (the translator’s) website. A few months too late for me, but I’m a map junkie. (Huge hat tip to Care for pointing them out.)

definitely dead most easiest summary
New Orleans. Dead vampires. Weretiger. Witches. Murder. Big fight in the swamp. Grr!

stretched spaghetti
…becomes very, very thin spaghetti?

what is the moral/lesson of hush hush
That stalking is sexy, and that it’s okay to become emotionally involved with a guy who is actually trying to kill you, as long as he’s really really hot.

sex book stack
You ask, I provide. (Actually, I was thinking of using some of these, plus Mathematicians in Love and The Mathematics of Love as a February “love vs. sex” mini-theme-read. Anybody interested?)

blue books
Well, see above. Or below.

    I just found out about the maps at the translator’s site too. I was the (temporary) star of a New Year’s get together just because I brought along my copy of The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest for show and tell!

    Every month I use this post to gauge whether or not I was a good blogger that month, because if I didn’t make it to commenting on your blog, I probably didn’t get to many at all. Yay, I commented last month!

    This is one of my favorite posts! Between your Definitely Dead summary and your Sex Book Stack, I had such a laugh! Plus, the blue books are really pretty together.

      Kay – I could have put together a bunch more blue titles, but only so many fit across the screen.

    I know where to come for maps! And I’ve always wondered about stretched spaghetti!

  5. January 3, 2010 10:37 am

    You’re welcome. One of those serendipitous finds and I almost thought ‘Oh, no one is going to care about this…’ ha!
    I have to check out all these maths and love books – huh?! very interesting…

    • January 3, 2010 9:34 pm

      Care – Insofar as I know, Mathematics and Sex is non-fiction, Mathematicians in Love is sci-fi, and The Mathematics of Love is historical fiction… and come February, I hope to have reviews for all of them. :)

    Oh irony of ironies…I am getting ready to write a review of Willig’s “Pink Carnation” book on my own blog and was looking for an image of the cover on google images. And your blog popped up. So I came over and HARK! I love your blog!! I am always looking for my next great book (aside from my book club’s choice). I love chick lit but that’s easy to find. It’s everywhere. It’s not so easy to find the other stuff. I actually really enjoyed Willig’s book (maybe because I’m also reading “The Road”) so I think I will link to your review of it so that my readers can get both sides, if you don’t mind. So glad to find this gem!!

    I always read your monthly wrap-ups and think, “I’m gonna do that next month!” then forget… lol.

      thekoolaidmom – Well, nothing saying you can’t do one a few days late, right?

  8. January 3, 2010 2:52 pm

    These search terms are hilarious! Funny stuff…

  9. January 3, 2010 4:53 pm

    Love your summary of Hush Hush! :P

    • January 3, 2010 9:35 pm

      Jenny – Well, I consider it my civic duty to get the word out. :P

  10. January 3, 2010 9:00 pm

    Too funny – the ‘sex book stack’ and ‘blue books’. You have a great sense of humor!

    • January 3, 2010 9:36 pm

      Dawn – Well, that, or a dirty mind and a penchant for terrible puns. :-)

    Thanks for the link! Love the blue books :)
