nephir: Garcia (Garcia; Ohhhh)

Currently I am reading (and in some cases rereading) Diane Duane's excellent Young Wizards series. I read the first three or four when they first came out, then lost track of them. She's been offering up a fabulous deal on them in ebook format through her personal site, so I bought them and have started them over again.

I've forgotten just how much I love these books, and how easily I am transported into Kit & Nita's lives. If you've not read them, I strongly recommend them.
