Books and Mentions of a Dodo

This morning I had a tutorial that was not on the topic I thought it was going to be.  When asked for my opinion on a theme I hadn't read about I offered up ideas on freedom from Maragaret Atwood's 'The Handmaid's Tale'.  Who says novels are only good for Literature degrees?

Has anyone read 'Wild Swans' by Jung Chang' and would like to squee about it with me?  I just finished reading it this afternoon.  I love how it reads like an historically factual fantasy story told to you by someone in a quiet library and is all true.

Also I finished a sort-of sequel to 'Keeping Childhood's Creatures', which I wasn't sure I was even going to write, and emailed it off to be beta-ed.  It has Luna Lovegood and Rolf Scamander in a bar in Mauritius.  There is a dodo, or rather mentions of a dodo since I didn't think dodos would really be in a bar.
