Just saw a promo for next Friday's 20/20 -- it's about Dracula. I wonder if they'll cover Kostova's novel. I would think that's the hook right now, just like The Da Vinci Code prompted all those programs about Mary Magdalene and the meaning of the Grail legend...

Hi, gang! The summer vacation was wonderful, very restorative. The semester is well underway, so I have the time, energy and inclination to return to the blogosphere.
Currently reading: The Hamilton Case by Michelle de Kretser. I'm halfway through. I'm enjoying it though it's not what I expected. I don't know why (vague recollections of reviews?), but I thought it would be a thriller. It isn't. In fact, I find it hard to categorize... will mull it over as I finish it & let you know what I come up with.
So, what have you guys been up to? I'll be doing the rounds to get into the flow again.
