Relistening: 4 hours and 20 minutes in
Midnight Riot - Ben Aaronovitch,Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

I haven't been getting through this very quickly - I keep having to work on things that require too much of my attention for audiobook listening to be possible.

 

I've just gotten to the part where Peter has set up his nice new relaxation spot, complete with fabulous technology (ooh, a TV...with cable), only to have Nightingale stop by. Nearly everyone at Peter's little party works for Nightingale, and here's Nightingale casually trying to join in.

 

So. Awkward.

Midnight Riot - Ben Aaronovitch,Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Leslie asks Peter whether he should be telling her all this stuff about magic and magical beings and Peter says "I don't see why not. Nightingale's never told me not to."

 

Except here's the thing: I'm pretty sure it was part of Peter's oath before becoming Nightingale's apprentice that he wasn't supposed to tell anyone about this stuff. It was a little vague - I interpreted it as "don't tell anyone who isn't part of our secret magical club," although I suppose it could have been interpreted as "don't tell anyone who isn't also part of the police." Either way, I don't think Peter should have assumed that he was allowed to tell Leslie all of this.

 

It's a moot point, since Nightingale never gets upset with Peter about this, but it's a detail that bugs me.

Relistening
Midnight Riot - Ben Aaronovitch,Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

I'm relistening to this. It's not that I don't want to listen to anything new-to-me, it's just that I've reviewed this already and relistening to it isn't going to add to my unwieldy list of things I still need to review.

I went to the bookstore after work yesterday!
Tricks for Free - Seanan McGuire
The Lost Plot - Genevieve Cogman
Rivers of London Volume 4: Detective Stories - Ben Aaronovitch,Lee Sullivan

This is my haul--I kept it small, because, you know, budgets.  I could happily have snagged a couple of cookbooks too, but I made myself put them back.

The Hanging Tree - Ben Aaronovitch

"Seriously, I thought, we couldn't have met in a Gregg's?"

 

Yep, I'd take a meeting in Gregg's over one in Harrods any day of the week. In fact I was dreaming about Gregg's cheese and onion pasties only last night.
