Almost done with Small Favor? Awesome. It’s a very good book. I like how it’s written and everything that happens in it. A funny line at the aquarium before the attack, is when Harry looks at an ugly dolphin and raises his fist and says to it:“Represent!”. That made me laugh.
Well after Small Favor there’s Turn Coat and then Changes (April 6). After that like any Dresden Files fan comes the long wait for a new book. The books are too good to slow down once you've started reading one.
Yes fruit punch spit... but it’s a reference to a short story and something that happened. Maybe you've read it.

Jim Butchers story is called:
(Dresden does CPR on Murphy who drowned in a bowl of fruit punch...)
I leaned down, causing runnels of punch to slide into one of my eyes and asked quietly, “Yeah?”
“You have fruit punch mouth” she whispered…
(fruit punch mouth reference)
Chapter 34 (Murphy does CPR on Dresden who drowned at the aquarium)
“CPR?” I asked her. My voice felt weak.
“Guess we’re even then”, I said
“Like hell we are”, she said quietly. “I only spit fruit punch into your mouth”
(because Dresden had dolphin breath...)
This is a reference to the illustrations on the Dresden Files books. Dresden on all the cover illustrations wears a hat and in the books it has never been mentioned. Fact he doesn’t wear one. Perhaps the illustrator thought Dresden looked better with a hat. It’s not a wizard’s hat and not a fedora…
The author made a point in this short sample to that amusing fact.

Jim Butcher short story: “Heorot”
(Dresden) “The falling rain would wash away the spell on my amulet if I left in out in the open, so I shielded as carefully as I could with the building and my hand. A hat would have come in handy for that purpose, actually, maybe I should get one."
