- The Explorers: The Door in the Alley by Adrienne Kress - from Random House Children's Books for review
- BBC Dr. Who Coloring Book - from a blogging friend who knows me well!
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains by Jon Morris
- The Day I Died by Lori Rader-Day
- Little Known Tales in Oklahoma by Alton Pryor
Good reading week. The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains is tremendous fun and I liked the uniqueness of the heroine in The Day I Died (she's a handwriting analyst). Little Known Tales of Oklahoma was terrible, but it's a very thin book so I opted to finish it and I did learn a few things. But, the overall effect was like reading a book composed of someone's research notes on recipe cards after they'd been dropped. Literally, some of the paragraphs needed to be swapped. Still, I had a fun reading week. Unfortunately, I tried to start this week's F2F discussion book and it didn't click. So, I'll be quiet during discussion if I make it to this week's meeting.
Last week's posts:
- The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson and a Fiona Friday pic [book review + cat photo]
- The Plague by Albert Camus - My classic selection for the month. I'm 1/3 of the way through and enjoying it but occasionally a bit grossed out.
- My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem - I am loving this book so much that I've elevated Steinem to the category of "People I'd like to have dinner with if I could choose anyone in the world".
In other news:
I think I may have mentioned that last week I was shut down for a few days when I got a pop-up claiming my computer had been hijacked. It took three attempts to shut down my windows and then I just set the computer aside until Husband came home from travel and confirmed that the message was a fake. Fortunately, we had two separate back-ups, but it still gives you an uneasy feeling when a message like that appears. On the plus side, I had a really productive week. Not having access to a computer makes an amazing difference in how one's time is used. Last week's computerless days and a story from My Life on the Road have got me thinking about changing how I do things (not to impact the blog, I should add). I periodically take social media breaks but I'm thinking about taking a break but still using Facebook and Twitter to update blog posts - just not visiting FB and Twitter, otherwise, because I like the way my time opens up when I avoid social media. Anyway, still thinking about that. We shall see.
