Oh, I don't like this Raymond Chandler book. Maybe at some point I'll finish it, but for now, I'm done. It's not too long, and it's wayyyyy better than that Dan Simmons book I struggled with a couple of months ago, but I still don't want to continue. Life is finite. Time to move on to something more interesting.
Speaking of quitting, I effectively gave up on my "Sleepyhead" scarf. The ribbon was a lot stiffer than the knitted fabric, so it felt weird and wouldn't drape nicely, plus it wasn't as beautiful as I'd wanted it to be. But I don't want to abandon the idea altogether. I started knitting another scarf out of the same yarn (gray and white, made from recycled pop bottles) and am hoping I can turn it into something. We'll see.
