What I've been reading

I read The Galaxy Game, which follows and is set in the same universe as The Best of All Possible Worlds. I adored that setting, and even though I had some problems with this book—I feel like it's trying to do some of the things in that book that shouldn't have worked and did, and here they just don't work—in many other ways it delighted me.

I read Studies in Words, another sort of popular-academic book by C. S. Lewis that I enjoyed very much. It is all about tracing the history of words, specifically words whose meanings have shifted such that they become false friends to later readers.
