Rock Me, Bartimaeus

We met last Monday and discussed The Amulet of Samarkand, the first book in the Bartimaeus trilogy, until after 8:30. It was a good time. It was also just me and two first-timers. I look forward to many more discussions with the two of them, but I also hope to see some of you "old-timers" back to join us in July. Neither of two knew anything about Gryphons & Dragons, they just knew how much they love the Bartimaeus books and wanted a chance to discuss them with like-minded readers. We're discussing the second book in the series, The Golem's Eye, July 9. Stop by the library to pick up your copy(ies).

(And if you've read the first book but couldn't make the discussion, feel free to leave your thoughts about it as a post on this blog.)

(Bonus points to anyone who knows what the title of this post is a reference to.)

Hi guys. I'm new to the Gryphons & Dragons crew, and I hope to see some of you tonight. I went in June but in August something came up with family. I'm one of the two people who came.

I can think of several things the title of the post could refer to. It might mean the jewel embedded in the amulet, or the fact that the "Golem's Eye" is made of clay. Can't wait to talk about Ptolomy's Gate tonight.

Okay, blog account set up. This is the same person as the first comment. Just wanted to be able to say stuff to everybody as "Lyra". "Anonymous" sounds to weird. Almost creepy.

Welcome, Lyra, glad to have you. It's actually a reference to an old 80s song: Rock Me, Amadeus.
