So for those of you following us on twitter, you are perhaps confused.  I promised that there would be an entry on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by this week.

And hoo boy, can I not wait to write it.

However, it was brought to my attention by my esteemed cohort, that she has yet to read it.  So.  Mark your calendars kids, because the first Withering Bites post in months will be hitting your screen by midnight, Monday, May 25 (yes, Memorial Day), I will have my post on P&P&Z.  The following week, unless I edit this post, will be dedicated to Tom Jones, probably for the month of June.

I’m very excited, and I hope you are too.

Also, I’ve been reading Alphabet Juice by Roy Blount Jr.  It makes me feel like these two sketches:

We’re not going away for ever.  We’re taking a break.

If you want to get painfully Zach Braff about it, we’re putting on an ellipsis.

For serious now, Michelle and I are suddenly finding ourselves swamped by the other elements of our lives; the things we do when we’re not snarking about literature.

So we’ll be on a break for a week or two.  Not completely gone, Michelle  has promised a superpost on theory and The Real Thing, while I will make good on that second Sabatini post.

In the mean time, relax, pick up Beowulf if you want, tell me why it’s good.  Check back for those updates, and we’ll be back to venting our spleens over the written word in no time.
