Books finished since last malarkey:
- Euphoria by Lily King
- The Ones Who Matter Most by Rachael Herron
This was a fabulous week. I absolutely loved both of the books I finished. Unfortunately, unless I decide to spend plenty of time hanging out at Starbucks, I may not be able to review them for a while. Our Internet service has gone kaput. More on that in a sec.
- Aim True by Kathryn Budig - 2/3 of the way through this combination memoir, exercise (yoga) and cookbook; and, I'll try some of the recipes when I finish (I am reading all of them, first, and marking those that I'm most eager to try)
- 1914 and Other Poems by Rupert Brooke (finally, I have gotten around to the poetry for National Poetry Month!)
- One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (book review)

In Other News:
As mentioned above, I'm posting from my local Starbucks (I have a local Starbucks! This was not the case before we moved, a few years ago; it's still exciting!) because our Internet has gone down. It's coming on for an hour or so, sporadically, but I can never predict when that will happen. A new fiber network is coming to our neighborhood and installation is progressing very nicely but we're guessing that we still have another two months to wait before they do all of the final connections. So . . . I'm anticipating fewer posts -- a lot fewer posts. That's primarily because neither of us wants to call our current server to complain because they'll try to sell us an upgrade we don't want. We may actually go ahead and cancel the service, which will mean Starbucks-only posting for a minimum of 8 weeks. I'll keep you posted on that. I just can't say what's going to happen, at this point.
Since I moderate comments, it may take some time for a comment and reply to show up, as well. Apologies in advance for the anticipated delays.
